Rotarians have helped a charity get online easier after donating a new computer.

Whitley Bay Rotary Club presented a new state-of-the-art laptop computer to the North Tyneside Disability Forum (NTDF) for their young people’s performance work.

When our performance laptop finally expired, we were devastated

Sue Adams, chief officer of NTDF

The £500 laptop was seen as an essential piece of technology which will help the group when they most need it.

Club members David Wilkinson and Richard Hart met members of NTDF young people’s project at their base at the Shiremoor Centre to see the machine and try it out.

Sue Adams, chief officer of NTDF, said: “When our performance laptop finally expired, we were devastated – NTDF uses voice activated software, BSL captions and subtitling and we need a light weight, high quality machine that can be used by everyone regardless of disability.

“The young people’s project use arts and music, drama and dance as a medium for so many things – and the PC will make a huge difference.”

The new laptop, complete with commemorative plaque form Rotary Club, will enable NTDF to record sound and visual performances, share performances, watch films and presentations, present information and make promotions and more.
