Hitchin business Flip Connect have donated a brand new 3CX hosted phone system worth £3,600 to our town's acclaimed youth charity Phase.
Phase work alongside young people to promote their wellbeing and resilience - which is more important than ever as we all face the challenges of lockdown, social distancing and stress caused by Covid.
Flip's kind gesture will help streamline Phase's communications processes in and out of the office and enable their fundraising team to secure even more donations in 2021 and beyond.
Phase director Kieran Murphy said: “The generous support from Flip Connect with the excellent phone solution has been a huge benefit to the work of Phase and our support of young people, parents and schools.
"We’ve all been impacted by the ‘work from home’ guidance, the phone solution from Flip Connect has meant the whole Phase team can respond to requests for support without any delay whether we’re at home, the office or even in a school.
"Phase might be a small charity but have a big mission.
"We strongly believe when children are supported early it is possible to prevent more serious emotional and mental health issues from developing.”
The reason behind the gesture was that Flip Connect employees were invited to nominate a charity close to their hearts - and chose Phase.
Many Flip employees are parents and know all too well the pressures that young people are under in society today.
Ben Smith, Flip director of operations explained: 'We all think that Phase does a phenomenal job with the young people of Hitchin.
"They are a wonderful charity and young people would seriously struggle without their work and guidance."
Flip Connect are a market-leading hosted solutions provider offering business packages on phone systems, leased lines, SIP Trunks and mobiles.
They are based in the heart of Hitchin and covering the East of England, Southeast and London.
Ben added: “Phase provides an invaluable service to young people in Hitchin, and we’re delighted to know that with help from Flip Connect, they can continue in the amazing work that they do.”
