Base youth centre in central Ashburton is looking for second-hand laptops. Co-ordinator Katrina Ward said the centre would be very grateful for any working laptops, which were popular with those at the centre for homework and entertainment. The centre has only one working laptop now but ideally would like four. Use of the laptops was monitored. The centre is open from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays and is non-profit.
