A Redbridge doctor is hoping to raise £10,000 to fund the donation of laptops to children missing out while off school.
Dr Fahad Memon explains why the fundraiser — organised by charity Sindh Doctors Association UK — is so important: “Lots of families have no laptop so their children cannot access online resources, which means they are missing their learning.

“We are donating laptops to schools, which then they can loan to parents for their children to use.”
So far 60 families have said they need a laptop, with the £10,000 needed to ensure they each get one.
Once children go back to school they will have to return the laptops for their school’s use.
With the JustGiving fundraiser at £800, there is still some way to go to achieve the £10,000 target, but Dr Memon is confident that “local people will help this great cause”. Visit justgiving.com/campaign/redbridge.
