In December 2019, and for the 14th year in row, we sent our customers a Christmas email instead of printed cards. The email invited them to choose from a list of charities for us to make a £2 donation towards – this way we could still wish our customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, at the same time as making better use of the money we would have spent on cards and postage.

We received 210 nominations which sets the total figure at £420.

Donation value by charity is as follows:

  • Macmillan Cancer Support: 126 (£252)

  • Royal Association for Deaf People: 11 (£22)

  • Save the Children: 38 (£76)

  • Scope: 11 (£22)

  • Sightsavers: 24 (£48).

We would like to take this opportunity wish you the very best for 2020 and look forward to working with you as you seek to improve the security & performance of your data centres, networks & applications.
