East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices Become Data Centre’s Chosen Charity

Blog Logo

Norfolk data centre experts MIGSOLV have chosen East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as their featured charity for 2018.

MIGSOLV, who deliver the world-class Gatehouse centre in Norwich, aim to help EACH raise their profile and funds towards their Nook Appeal.

“We all hope we never need a charity like EACH. But for critically ill children and their families, it’s impossible to overestimate the importance of what they do.”“As many of the MIGSOLV staff are parents, it was a unanimous decision to support them however we can.”David Manning, MIGSOLV’s Managing Director

EACH supports children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. They deliver care both in the family home and in EACH’s hospices in Milton in Cambridgeshire, The Treehouse in Ipswich and Quidenham in Norfolk.

The hospices are friendly and welcoming places, supporting children and families at a very difficult and anxious time. The staff don’t wear uniforms and everyone is encouraged to regard the hospice as their home-from-home.

EACH’s Nook appeal is currently looking to raise £10 million for a new facility in the heart of Norfolk to replace the aging Quidenham hospice. EACH have many fund-raising activities planned in 2018, including their annual ‘Ride-for-life’ 200-mile sponsored cycle ride in July.

“In our small way, hopefully we can increase awareness and funding for this very important local charity.”“I’d recommend other businesses become involved too, as it’s an easy and rewarding way to help the charity raise its profile and money.”David Manning, MIGSOLV’s Managing Director

MIGSOLV’s Gatehouse data centre in Norwich is the region’s only purpose-built commercial data centre, providing space, power, cooling and physical security for organisation’s computer servers and IT equipment. Renovated at a cost of £12 million in 2012, it helps businesses increase their resilience by protecting their data against threats including terrorism, power failure and extreme weather.
