Jacqui makes all the difference with #TabletswithLove
30th October 2021
Jacqui Barrett had the bright idea to help the NHS and wider community with donating free digital devices. In partnership with a range of businesses such as Very, Tesco Mobile, Lenovo and Alcatel, Jacqui contacted Helpforce who helped funnel the digital devices to those NHS trusts in need. Via The Helpforce Assist work, over 300 devices were donated to 20+ NHS trusts and community groups. T

Considering the last 16 months, video calls have become a lifeline for most who were isolating, living alone or just needed someone to converse with. As the health sector was stretched during the pandemic, we never got to see every benefit of the devices. But, if you look up #TabletsWithLove on Instagram or Twitter, you will see photos and even a video testimonial from a patient explaining that the Lenovo device “perked him up” whilst he was recovering from C-19 and enabled him to talk to his wife. Jacqui is nothing short of a saint for linking the businesses, who’d otherwise have second hand devices or stock sat there with no sense of purpose.
