A charity dedicated to cancer patient care has received sponsorship support from NEC and their Newcastle based reseller, who have jointly raised £1550 so far, having recently presented the second cheque together.
Brian Burney’s Daft as a Brush cancer patient care charity receive £25 from Russell Telecom each time the company sells an SV8100 phone system. In the last three months, NEC Sales Director Andrew Cooper has matched this contribution. “Cancer is a disease that affects so many, and this charity has done some inspiring work,” says Copper. He adds that it is always a pleasure for NEC to be able to offer support to a charity, and especially one which offers such a fantastic service.
The charity provides staffed custom-made vehicles, which transport outpatients who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy cancer treatments between hospital and home. The charity’s goal is to create an organisation which can transport 50,000 cancer patients per year.
“It’s been excellent helping such a good cause and we are delighted to have received contributions from NEC so that we can make even more of a difference” said Kelvyn Gracie, Managing Director at Russell Telecom. He claimed that Brian’s enthusiasm was infectious, and he was soon hooked on the charity. “Russell Telecom never envisaged that during these hard economic times we would be able to help with this great charity. Now our ambition is to pay for a further ambulance within the year.”
