Primary school pupils at nine schools are able to access new interactive technology after a charity raised £20,000 for equipment. 

The BASIC Life Charity, in Hamilton Road, raised the impressive total to get Colneis with Fairfield, Langer, Grange, Maidstone, Causton, Trimley St Mary, Trimley St Martin and Kingsfleet schools new interactive whiteboards in three months. 

The charity's founder Graham Denny thanked people for their support hitting the five figure target to get touch screens that are connected to the internet.

He said: "It has been a hard time for schools and we thought let's support them. 

"It's really good for the pupils and they're delighted to receive so much equipment.
