Two local businesses have donated some much needed PPE to the Wycombe Wanderers Community Charity.
Activereach, a top UK cybersecurity integrator based in High Wycombe, and Netskope, a global leader in cloud security, have donated some much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust (WWSET).
Following a recent period of successful joint trading, both businesses decided to give something back to the local community.
Activereach has a programme of supporting local charities through good and bad times. The sales and marketing teams in both businesses aligned in their shared passion for grass roots football, Wycombe Wanderers FC was an obvious choice.
The Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust is the charitable arm of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club. The WWSET engages with members of the community with a varied and rich sports and education programme, often with a football inspired message aimed at some of the most vulnerable groups of society. The charity runs in excess of 40 different community outreach projects annually that fit into one of 4 categories: health, education, sports participation or social inclusion.
With lock down restrictions lifting across England, the charitable trust is set to resume their community programmes, a move which has been enhanced by the joint donation of PPE by activereach and Netskope.
Vijay Mistry, Channel Marketing Manager, Netskope, stated: ‘We have worked effectively with activereach through the Covid-19 lockdown and appreciate the strength of our partnership on both a commercial and community support level.
We are extremely proud to co-sponsor the donation of PPE to Wycombe Wanderers’ charitable trust and look forward to following their progress in the coming months.‘
Paul Foley, Head of Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust, commented: ‘We were just starting to look at how we were going to fund the PPE required to kickstart our activity when activereach and Netskope came along!
We are really appreciative of the support and have used the funding to purchase masks, gloves, visors, hand sanitiser, wipes and contactless thermometers. We can’t wait to get back out there now and deliver our sessions to the community.‘
Keith Archer, Commercial Director, activereach, added: ‘We are delighted that we can help keep staff and the local community safe as they re-engage with Wycombe Wanderers again. As an avid Wycombe supporter, it’s a great feeling.‘
