We would like the opportunity to say thank you to all of our customers for their support throughout the year and wish them and their teams a Merry Christmas. This year instead of sending cards and chocolates, we will be making a donation of £1000 on behalf of our customers to local charities who have found this year particularly difficult.
Whilst there are hundreds of amazing charities in the North East, many of which we provide IT support, we have asked our staff to choose three which we will split our donation between. We will be giving our customers the opportunity to vote for which charity you would like to see the £1000 donation to go to.
This years selected charities are:
