Childnet is a charity that aims is to help make the internet a great and safe place for children and young people.
Early in 2017, they approached us to give them a quotation for the new system desks they needed to improve and organise their working environment in Brockley, London SE4. Although we were able to provide a competitive quotation for new products, it became clear that funds were too tight to justify this sort of expenditure.
But we didn't forget them – and in March we began working with another client who wished to dispose of some rather nice as new bench desking, seating and storage, originally provided by Task Systems.
So we planned Childnet's new layouts, worked out the componentry and organised a technical visit with the support of Task Systems. Then we arranged delivery and installation of some 16 workplaces, only covering the transport/installation costs. The value of these products as originally supplied was £17,741.00 Ex VAT.
People say time is money, but giving time freely can be as valuable as cash donations – and our time has made a real difference for Childnet's people!
