“We had an eight year old boy and his mother in (Women’s Aid Refuge) last week. They had had to get out fast and he’d left his computer behind – the look on his face when we gave him the i-Pad was priceless.”
“What I really like is that it gets me out and about and keeps me active. It forces me to get up in the morning.”
