Coffs man appeals for hospitalised children to have laptops

SAM Cohen is appealing for help to keep hospitalised children entertained.

The Coffs Harbour based computer buff is riding to the rescue of bored kids stuck in bed for hours, days and weeks on end with his plan for a laptop computer or more than one which the children can use to play games.

Of course, Sam would not need to come to the rescue so urgently if someone had not removed the laptop the hospital had for just that purpose.

" It does not need to be a very new machine,just so long as it is a laptop."" said Sam, who repairs computers.

"It can even be dead."

The machine needs to be a laptop so that the children can carry it around with them as they wait for treatments or are moved from place to place.So if you have a mobile machine you are not using, do not like or can't get operational, call Sam on 0266514435 or email him on samozau@yahoo.com
