For the last few years, Managed Networks has taken the CSR initiative of financially supporting and raising awareness of UK charities. At Christmas, we step it up a notch and make a bulk donation to a selected charity. This year, among the many charitable causes we’ve supported, we’ve chosen to make our Christmas donation to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
Our Christmas donation of £2,000 to the NPSCC will help raise awareness of child cruelty and provide a safer environment for children. The donation comes in addition to the £1,800 raised by Ben Rapp CEO of Managed Networks at the RideLondon event in support of NSPCC in August 2013. Mr Rapp also makes an additional personal contribution of nearly £1,000 to the charity annually.
Everyday trained volunteer counsellors of the NSPCC comfort, advice and protect around 2,500 children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn. These helpless children have suffered abuse, cruelty, bullying and exploitation and NSPCC is committed to putting an end to it.
At Managed Networks, we believe in helping the less fortunate in our society and we’ll continue to do our part to support worthy causes like the NSPCC’s. Some other charities we’ve supported financially in 2013 alone include The Stroke Association, Jeans4Genes, Breast Cancer and Blind Children’s Society.
As our corporate Christmas tradition, we work out the amount we would spend on gifts for clients and donate this money to a charity. We hope that other organisations will follow suit and support charities like the NSPCC. When it comes to supporting charitable causes, the size of the organisation doesn’t really matter. We can all make an impact.
