CTM-IT’s Charity of the Year is SMART CJS
We are delighted to have been nominated as CTM-IT’s charity of the year!
Rupert Davey, Managing Director of CTM-IT explains:
“Each year we work with one local charity to raise awareness and funding for the amazing work they do. After a fantastic series of events in 2019, we’re really looking forward to supporting our 2020 charity of the year, SMART CJS.”
CTM’s main fundraising focus will be on collaborating and supporting SMART CJS homeless and rough sleepers services in Bedford and Milton Keynes. This will include raising money for the Prebend Centre in Bedford, which receives no statutory funding and needs to raise £250K per year to keep this vital service alive.
SMART CJS CEO, Anita McCallum, comments:
“I have known CTM-IT for a number of years through using their excellent services. It so amazing to have their support for our own fundraising events that are in the calendar for 2020 and activities that CTM-IT will kindly arrange with their team locally. The principle of corporate social responsibility is now a well-established one for most enlightened businesses; it helps with team building, morale and motivation and, above all, gives something worthwhile back to the community it serves. We are delighted to be partnered by one of our most trusted suppliers for this joint fundraising initiative.”
