Barnardo’s and Vodafone will be asking the audience to support The Great British Tech Appeal which they launched in May 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. To date the campaign has provided devices and connectivity to 7,500 disadvantaged young people, enabling them to access education, stay in touch with friends and family and connect to essential services. This is part of Vodafone’s commitment, announced in June, to connect one million people living in digital poverty by the end of 2022.
