Outdated phones and laptops wanted

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water is seeking donations of outdated and unwanted phones and laptops for people escaping domestic violence.

Club president Ms Cherie Simpson and vice-president Ms Jayne Mote recently handed over seven phones and one laptop to Ettalong charity The Peninsula Lighthouse.

Lighthouse chief executive Ms Natasha McDowell said the phones and laptops would be cleaned and set up for use for domestic violence victims who could no longer use their existing devices as they faced cyber-bullying from their perpetrators, as well as their whereabouts being easy to track.

"There has been an increase in domestic violence cases during Covid lockdown so more help is needed for people to stay safe," Ms McDowell said.

The Lighthouse "guides people through the storm of trauma and abuse with counselling, practical help and referral to appropriate agencies", she said.

The Rotary has "answered the call" to help these vulnerable people by donating old mobile phones and laptops," Ms Simpson said.

"There will be more to come."

Anyone wanting to donate old phones or laptops should contact Jayne Mote on 0405 714 289.
