Nearly 300 primary school children have been left staring at blank screens because their school can't afford to turn on its new computers.
Fundraisers for Hamle Primary School in Hampshire raised £10,000 to transform an old toilet block into a state-of-the-art computer lab with 15 PCs.
But the cost of the software licences will cost an extra £5,000 which the school simply does not have.
The target of £10,000 was reached three years earlier than anticipated. A successful charity auction, with signed photos of film star Kate Winslet and memorabilia from TV soap EastEnders, helped the school in its fundraising.
The work equipping the new computer suite was finished three months ago but, until the extra £5,000 is raised, the PCs will remain unused.
