prospectA local IT support company is donating its time and expertise to help the Wroughton arm of a regional charity.

IMEX Technical Services, the Malmesbury-based IT support consultancy, has committed technical know-how and fundraising backing for Wroughton’s Prospect Hospice.

The company, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, will be providing free back-up technical support for the Hospice, and has also committed to taking part in some fundraising events for Prospect, which celebrates its own 30th anniversary during the year.

IMEX has also agreed to source cost-effective software to support the Hospice’s IT needs.

Keith Cleverley, IMEX’s, joint founder, is pleased that the IT specialists are able to bring their energy and expertise to the Wroughton-based hospice. “We wanted to mark our tenth birthday by throwing our collective support behind a much-loved local charity,” he said. “For personal reasons Prospect is very close to my own heart, as it is for many others at IMEX, and we felt that in choosing it as a partner charity we could make a real difference to the many patients and families referred to the hospice each year.”

Stuart Thornton, Prospect’s director of finance and support services, added: “We are thrilled to be able to call on the IMEX team, and thank them for their generosity in choosing Prospect Hospice as their charity this year.”

Prospect Hospice this year celebrates 30 years of dedicated end-of-life care, given freely on the basis of need, to patients in the community of Swindon and north Wiltshire. The charity provides its care at the Hospice in Wroughton, in patients’ homes, and also in Swindon’s Great Western Hospital, and also provides supportive care for patients’ families.

Last year more than 1600 patients were referred to the care of Prospect Hospice.
