Shaun loves his new iPad

Shaun's Mum Nicola decided to take part in the Hearts & Minds mobile recycling scheme with the hope of collecting 165 old mobile phones to exchange for an iPad for Shaun, He is 3 years old and is non-verbal , they hope the iPad will help him communicate better with people around him.

Nicola said she lives in a smallish town so found Facebook a great tool to get the word out and her local paper also did an advert to help spread the word and appeal for people to dig their old phones out.

The nursery Shaun attends helped by putting posters up , and local shops and businesses agreed to be drop off points.

Nicola was amazed with the reaction and the phones flowed in and within 4 weeks they had managed to collect not 165 phones but 220 phones and managed to get Shaun an iPad Air.

Shaun is really enjoying his new iPad and mum says he knows how to work it and will benefit greatly , She thanks everyone involved who helped to make it possible.
