In December 2015, and for the 10th 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 would like to thank everyone who nominated a charity for our Christmas donation, and we are pleased to confirm that we received 250 nominations, which sets the full donation figure at £500.

Donation value by charity is as follows:

  • Macmillan Cancer Support: 147 (£294)

  • Royal Association for Deaf People: 9 (£18)

  • Save the Children: 57 (£114)

  • Scope: 15 (£30)

  • Sightsavers: 22 (£44).

We would like to take this opportunity wish you the very best for 2016 and look forward to working with you as you seek to improve the security & performance of your data centres, networks & applications.
