Towards the end of last year, our team decided that we really wanted to do something different for our Christmas promo. Rather than offering our clients a discount on our products, we decided to donate £15 for every uAttend machine purchased Between 1st—31st December, to a charity chosen by our team.
Three charities were shortlisted – all doing fantastic work in extremely challenging times. As our team voted, however, it became obvious that there was a clear winner emerging – Julian House.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the name, Julian House is a fantastic charity close to our hearts and also our offices – its headquarters are located just down the road in Bath, Somerset. Many of us have witnessed first-hand the incredible work they do and the invaluable support they provide to those in need, and our Bath-resident webmaster has taken untouched food from our office Christmas parties to the hostel for the past few years now.
Despite the recent cost-of-living crisis, combined with the typical down-turn in sales just before Christmas, we sold 22 new clocking-in machines to uAttend customers, meaning that this morning, we were able to hand over £330 to Cathy Adcock, Fundraising and Digital Marketing Manager at Julian House.
We are delighted that Chronologic has supported Julian House this Christmas, the £330 raised will be a huge help as the uncertainty of the 2023 looms. Over the next few months, we will continue to be quite stretched as we continue to provide extra bed-spaces, food, warmth and much needed support for those affected by homelessness, domestic abuse and addiction, to name just a few reasons.
Providing these extra resources would be immeasurably more difficult without the support of the wider community and of course advocates like Chronologic. It also gives us great heart – particularly for my colleagues who deliver frontline services. Some days the work can be quite challenging; but, with amazing outcomes.
Thank you from everyone at Julian House.
