My plans for summer volunteer work sadly fell flat. YMCA South Devon were not interested. I also contacted the Acorn Centre in Barton, they also want volunteers but didn’t bother to get back to me, so I ended up wasting a whole day, waiting in for them to call back. So I assumed they were not interested.
The good thing to come out this, is that I now have 3 netbooks all ready to go, they are currently installed with xubuntu 17.04 however they may end up being upgraded to 17.10 in October just to keep on top of software updates.
I may try the schools, see if anyone is interested.
