Hosting Firm Supports Survivors
Article date: Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:53 GMTHosting and colocation firm UKFast has pledged its support for a male abuse charity based in Manchester as part of the firm's Random Acts of Kindness Year. Survivors Manchester, who provide free counselling online for male victims of abuse, became the latest charity to receive support from the technology company, which has pledged to keep the support site online and accessible by those in need 24/7. CEO Duncan Craig said: "UKFast are our knights in shining armour. Our website is very important to what we do; it's a critical space - a self-help and counselling outlet for men who need immediate support. "UKFast came to our rescue when our website was down and we couldn't have been more thankful. We're now able to speak to abuse victims quicker, and more frequently, and maintain that link in communication which means that we can start to help more people. "We always try our best to 'buy local', so I'm really pleased that we can have this connection with such a key service inside Manchester." UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: "At the beginning of the year we set out to give back to the city and having seen how important Survivors Manchester's website is to helping men who have been through a tough time, and with what is a very taboo subject still, we knew that whilst we could obviously help by providing them with the technology they need, we could help with raising awareness too." UKFast's Random Acts of Kindness Year has so far seen the firm support the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation, hosting several charity days and competing in the BUPA Great Manchester 10k, raising thousands of pounds for charities across the country.
