RAB (Reading Association for the Blind) has partnered with local IT company SecureCloud+ to deliver care packages to the charity’s members to help them transition through the pandemic.

RAB have given their members a special surprise as they have successfully delivered gift parcels throughout the month of September.

The gift parcels were generously provided by local IT company SecureCloud+, to raise the spirits of the RAB members during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

As most of the beneficiaries are currently shielding due to COVID-19, SecureCloud+ ensured that socially distanced deliveries were made possible, ensuring that all packages were handled with care.

SecureCloud+ have included in the care packages several useful items during the pandemic such as face masks, hand sanitisers as well as stress balls and many office-related stationaries. In these unprecedented times, these items will come as a welcome boost to ensure that the members know that the charity is there to help.

Peter Williamson- CEO of SecureCloud+ said,

‘We realise that we must support the community in any way we can as most staff members are from Reading and have grown up in various Reading communities. Helping the community is one of our core ethos as an organisation to ensure that we are giving back. We are in awe of work these charities do in the community and we hope that the care packages give their members a boost as we work together through the pandemic.’

Adele Barnett-Ward, CEO, Reading Association For The Blind, commented

“We are so grateful for Secure Cloud+’ support and generosity during this challenging time. Not only have they committed to replacing our outdated IT, but they also came up with the idea of care packages for our service users. Whilst lockdown is lifting for most, the challenges of maintaining social distance when you have a visual impairment mean that many of our service users are still unable to get out and about. The Secure Cloud+ care packages are a timely boost to morale and a reminder that people are thinking of them.”

This is merely the start of their collaboration as the IT company look forward to working with the RAB in upgrading the IT software for their staff later this month. SecureCloud+ will be providing IT software upgrades and refurbished laptops to the charity.
