-- Malmesbury-based IT firm IMEX has shown its charitable side by continuing with its support for local charity Prospect Hospice.
The firm, which provides IT support and consultancy to businesses of all sizes, working in many sectors, first contacted the Wroughton-based charity in 2010, and has continued to provide a free IT support solution for the hospice since then.
For support director Keith Cleverley, the link was first established following his mother-in-law’
s care at the Hospice in 2009.
“During that time I was impressed by the care that the hospice gave, and felt that I would like to be able to do something to contribute to this excellent charity,” he said.
"Initially I was keen to raise funds, but then realised that my company could bring some very practical support, in particular for the IT manager, who runs the entirety of Prospect’s IT function singlehandedly."
According to Prospect’s IT manager Geoff Bryan, the support from IMEX has been gratefully received: “Ours has been a strong partnership,”
Keith Cleverley also has personal targets to continue to raise money for the hospice, ranging from donations from friends and family he gives IT support to, and through taking part in the 2012 Swindon Half marathon.
