A schoolboy in Hemel Hempstead has benefited from Affinity Water's kind gesture which saw the water company loan out spare laptops to families across the region.

The scheme has been a success with Affinity Water employees and their families thanking the team who organised for the 50 spare laptops to be loaned out to staff during the current lockdown.

All were struggling with school work on their mobile devices before being able to use their loaned laptops.

Billi, who lives in Hemel Hempstead, said: “It’s been amazing receiving the laptop as Ronnie was unable to access all his work on his tablet and was missing a lot of work.”

Ronnie, who is in Year 8 said: “It has really helped me with accessing all my work and made it easy for me to join in my live lessons and speak to my teachers every day.

“Before having the laptop, I missed out a lot of work, but I have now been able to catch up.”
