Young people staying at Dickson House children's home in Doncaster are set to have the latest technology at their fingertips thanks to an £1,800 donation for new IT equipment.

The care home, which is run by Doncaster Deaf Trust and is a residential home for Deaf or hearing-impaired pupils who attend Doncaster School for the Deaf, has been awarded the generous donation from the Speech and Language Learning Foundation.
