Captain Dunk, 29, said: “We have a very close bond with the local community.

“As someone who went to school in Brighton and Hove I know all too well how brilliant our local schools are, and just how hard the teachers work to achieve that.

“Home schooling my own children during lockdown was a real eye opener.

“It made many of us realise the amazing work we all benefit from.

“It is great that we can help in this small way to ensure local children can continue their education during these difficult times.”

Last night, The Sun revealed how peers had stung the taxpayer for nearly £100,000 of laptops and iPads to work from home during the pandemic.

But thousands of children are still waiting on theirs to do their lessons.

Parliament dished out 111 pricey devices to House of Lords members.

Peers also claimed for five webcams, three monitors, five laptop chargers, three ethernet cables and a docking station too.

And 38 claimed £200 each for a printer too – which totalled £6,251.67.

It came as it emerged that 500,000 of 1.3million cheaper laptops promised to needy pupils had not arrived.
