We hope that donating our software to help gain exposure for future fundraising campaigns will support this very special charity and the amazing work they do”.

Regional Fundraising Executive at Leonard Cheshire, Sarah Grout, said: “Collate Systems have already been so supportive of the work of Leonard Cheshire and their generosity has included free training. Given the current challenges imposed by the pandemic it is a phenomenal gesture that Collate Systems wishes to extend that support to our charity by targeting its resources in this way. I am really looking forward to working together on this project that will raise further awareness of our work. It’s a brilliant example of using technology to help us to support more disabled people.”
