£20,000 donations from wind farms to help students at Fife College
Students in Fife have received laptops to support their studies thanks to a special Covid Recovery Fund linked to two Fife wind farms.
Earlseat Wind Farm, on the outskirts of Kirkcaldy, donated £10,000 to fund much needed tech such as laptops and tablets for students studying courses which could lead on to a career in the renewables industry.
A second donation of £10,000 from Little Raith Wind Farm, on the A92 near Cowdenbeath, will support student placements in the near future.
Ten laptops have been delivered with three others receiving funds to purchase their own devices.
Lyn Gold, Adam Smith Foundation c-ordinator, welcomed the donations, adding: “These laptops and devices are so badly needed right now by our students, especially since most of their learning is currently online.
“Many have been struggling with old tech, sharing laptops with siblings or using their phones to complete work for College which can be stressful.”
