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