A huge thank you to Sophos for welcoming us on March 27th to officially launch our partnership.

Our Fundraising Manager Natalie and Fundraising Officer Aimée made a trip to the Abingdon HQ of the company to provide a deeper look at the work we do with autistic young people with complex needs, and highlight the impact their fundraising, volunteering and advocacy will have.

Natalie and Aimée were joined virtually by around 40 Sophos colleagues from across the business to explore four upcoming volunteer dates and our range of fundraising challenges available. One particularly exciting prospect explored was the idea of technical volunteering and skill sharing between our two organisations.

It wasn't just a one-way visit either as Natalie and Aimée took a tour of the offices of the cyber-security company and learned about its company culture and ethos.

And, perhaps best of all for Team Sophos, we delivered some salted caramel brownies from our on-site bakery's Easter range!

As part of this partnership, Sophos is committing to raising money for us, with the funds going towards the technology aspect of our Performing Arts Centre fundraising appeal.

Thank you Nic McDonald and Vicky Giddings for hosting our visit. We're really excited to build on our partnership in the coming months.
