THERE’S free pizza on offer at a brand new study/homework club at the Redi Centre in Mount Pleasant.

Since the first lockdown in March, and with many parents working from home, many young people have struggled to get online and access other digital resources needed to complete school work.

Enter the Redi Centre which has a computer suite of 11 PCs available plus a quiet room for anyone wanting to get away from it all.

“Households may only have one computer or laptop, that the parents are using for work or may not have internet access at all,” said organiser Leroy Mentos.

“It may even be the case that their house is louder than usual and they just need a quiet place study.”

The Redi Centre has teamed up with IT company Version 1, who are sponsoring the project, to run an after school study group, where young people can access a computer to study and complete any homework they may have, in a safe, quiet environment.

The sessions will be overseen by a qualified youth worker and will run every Tuesday and Thursday, from 3pm to 6pm, starting from Tuesday, December 8.

As an added bonus supermarket giant Morrisons is helping out too with an offer of pizza or a hot snack to refuel those who turn up early and study through.

“All sessions are in a Covid secure environment and will comply with social distancing and all are welcome,” said Leroy.

To book a slot call Leroy on 07458 304667 or email leroy.ryce@mail.com.
