Almost a year after the first national lockdown and with schools having been closed due to the pandemic, Stonegate Group has been donating dozens of laptops to its team members, who have been home schooling children, that do not have access to a computer.
Recognising the challenges of home schooling, and in particular children needing devices to access remote learning, Stonegate Group has supported many employees and their families by sending out dozens of laptops. Each laptop was overhauled to meet school requirements and delivered to employees’ homes.
Simon Longbottom, Chief Executive of Stonegate Group, said “We wanted to help our team members who, through no fault of their own, have been forced into home schooling and may not have had the right equipment to do so. This current lockdown has impacted us all in different ways, this is just one small gesture that will hopefully help a few members of the Stonegate Family.”
These laptop donations follow Stonegate Group’s donation of all its surplus non-alcoholic products in venues across its managed estate to local charities. Charities were selected by each pub’s General Manager, and crisps, snacks, nuts, juices and soft drinks, dated up to March 2021 were all donated, as well as any fresh fruit and vegetables the pubs had in stock.
