Network operator Gamma Telecom has made a substantial contribution to The Spinal Amenities Fund charity in response to a challenge laid down by channel partner, Cleartone, to beat the standard implementation time.
Cleartone promised Gamma the donation of £1000 in exchange for early completion of an interconnection installation. Gamma is always looking to excel in partnership service, so Network Switch Engineers Paul Jenkins and Joe Ross took up the challenge. They were able to complete the work well ahead of schedule, resulting in a happy partner and a donation to the charity of Gamma’s choice.
Russell Erskine, the Cleartone account manager at Gamma has decided that the money will go to the The Spinal Amenities Fund. The charity fund collects contributions for the National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire where Russell has close personal ties. The NSIC provides comprehensive care to adult patients with acute spinal cord injury. It also offers rehabilitation to children with spinal cord injury in a dedicated paediatric unit.
Richard Bligh, Marketing Director at Gamma Telecom commented, “As a company we value being able to give our customers excellent service, and we have built a reputation on always responding to the needs of our channel partners. On occasions like this where we are able to help a charitable cause in the process of our day to day jobs it is very satisfying, and we extend our thanks to Cleartone for their generosity.”
It is expected that the money donated by Gamma and Cleartone will go towards helping The Spinal Amenities Fund to improve facilities at the hospital, therefore improving the experiences of both patients and staff.
