Football ace Emile Heskey is helping an innovative new programme hit the back of the net by spearheading the installation of free laptops for disadvantaged children. Launched at four schools across London, LG Electronics UK’s Laptop Libraryprogramme supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds with free access to state-of-the-art technology to improve their digital education experience.

  • Football prodigy Emile Heskey is the driving force behind LG’s initiative to construct ‘laptop libraries’ in London schools to assist disadvantaged kids. One of the schools received a surprise visit from the Three Lions legend as part of the initiative, which was launched in cooperation with the UK charity ReachOut. Between 1999 and 2010, former striker Heskey, 43, earned over 60 caps for the Three Lions. Between 1999 and 2010, former striker Heskey, 43, earned over 60 caps for the Three Lions.

As part of the programme, LG has donated LG gram laptops to each school and equipped them with a portable and secure store and charge solution which students can use to book out laptops for use at school or home – specifically to support 1-1 mentoring sessions. And as a special treat to the students of Wapping High School to mark the programme launch, England legend and father of seven Heskey was present to unveil the library and give a motivational talk to the students on the importance of education in setting up the foundations for a bright future.

“School education is so important in setting yourself up for the future, and I feel we sometimes take things like laptops for granted when there are some children that simply don’t have access, so I’m really pleased to help launch this brilliant programme from LG and ReachOut.”

Former Liverpool and Leicester star Heskey, 43, said: “With seven children of my own currently in education I can fully appreciate how vital the latest technology is in ensuring a seamless and effective school learning experience.

Launched in collaboration with ReachOut – a leading UK charity that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds with weekly one-to-one mentoring, helping develop character, raise aspirations, and improve academic attainment – around 2,600 children are set to benefit from the initiative across the four schools.
