London – December 17, 2015 – Skyscape Cloud Services Limited, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company has donated £10,000 apiece to the Great
“We are thrilled to support both the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity, both of which provide such vital care and equipment to so many,” said Simon Hansford, CEO of Skyscape Cloud Services. “As a socially responsible organisation, we strive to always do the right thing and part of this means we have committed to sharing our profits with our community by providing much needed financial assistance to worthy organisations.”
Skyscape recently announced the launch of the Skyscape Foundation, an initiative dedicated to supporting charitable causes, through which an annual donation of two percent of net profits is made to charities selected by the company and its employees. Skyscape’s core values include serving the wider society by actively encouraging staff to support their personal charities or ones close to them, as well as the company’s chosen charities.
“It certainly is a refreshing change for such a substantial donation to come from a private sector organisation,” said Gill Raikes, Chief Executive at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity. “Skyscape’s commitment to supporting charitable causes should be a leading example for all businesses to give back to their communities wherever possible.”
With the growing need for healthcare providers to deliver more efficient services to patients whilst reducing costs, adoption of cloud computing is on the rise. As an enterprise dedicated to providing the most cost-effective and agile ICT solutions to the public sector, Skyscape’s contribution will help both the Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity and the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity with purchasing equipment, funding research, re-development of the hospitals’ buildings and support services.
“Contributions in any form make the world of difference for the many children and families that we support,” said Nikki Judd, Business Development Executive at the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. “The charity could not continue to support the work of the hospital without the generous support of corporate donors like Skyscape Cloud Services.”
The Skyscape team recently dedicated the official Children in Need appeal day on Friday 13th November to a number of fundraising activities in aid of the charity, with the whole company taking part in fancy dress, raising £25,000.
