Getech announce their first ever charity of the year

Getech Ltd has proudly announced they have chosen Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity as their inaugural charity of the year. The company regularly give back to the community, but this is the first time in its history they have picked a designated charity to focus all its fundraising activity on.

Getech is a leading desktop services distributor and provider based in Ipswich and has ambitious plans to raise thousands for The Children’s Appeal at Ipswich Hospital in 2022.

Even before the official announcement, they had held a Christmas Jumper Day and staff raffle which raised £1874.50. They have also donated two Chromebooks and a PlayStation 5, along with a gaming chair, headphones, games and a monitor for the children to enjoy. Fundraising plans so far for the year include January’s ‘Name the Duck’ competition, as well as a ‘Picnic in the Park/Rounders Tournament,’ grown-up ‘Sports Day’ (complete with sweets & stickers), a BBQ and a quiz night. The company also has plans to participate in ‘The Santa Run.’

Guy Watts – Managing Director explained why Getech have chosen to support The Children’s Appeal:

“We really wanted to show our appreciation and support for the fantastic work the NHS has done over the past 18 months during this dreadful pandemic. Therefore, we have nominated ‘The Children’s Appeal’ as our chosen cause for 2022. Being Ipswich-based, we were happy to choose a local charity and we feel this stands to benefit everyone in the Ipswich area. We are keen to raise lots of funds for the ward with the events we are planning over the forthcoming year, and we very much look forward to working closely with you.”

The Children’s Appeal was launched in 2018 with an aim to transform every centimetre of the Children’s Department at Ipswich Hospital.

The redeveloped department will be light, airy and modern with significantly improved facilities to match the highest standards of care already received by patients.

Matron of Children’s Services, Kate Stockton said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Getech has picked us as their first charity of the year. We can’t wait to help and support them during the year in everything they do.”
