Electricity firm UK Power Networks has helped update the IT systems of Suffolk Wildlife Trust with a donation of ten computer screens.

The company, which delivers electricity to the East of England, London and the South East, has been a corporate member of Suffolk Wildlife Trust - and the other eight wildlife trusts in its patch – since 2011.

Dozens of the firm’s staff have volunteered over the years to help on the Trust’s land and now it has come to its aid with 10 computer screens.

Michael Strand, development manager at Suffolk Wildlife Trust, said: “The screens at our six outlying sites have been used for a long time by staff, with the smaller screen size making working with stock sheets and budgets rather challenging.

“Because we are guided by our members’ wishes to ensure the funds generated by Suffolk Wildlife Trust go towards wildlife conservation and engaging people with wildlife, we wanted to find a way to improve working practice for our staff without compromising our main charitable objectives. Hence the call to UK Power Networks and the request for support.

“Our utmost thanks go to them for supporting our work with this gift of the ten screens; our relationship continues to grow from year to year.”

Heather Patrick, environment adviser at UK Power Networks, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to help Suffolk Wildlife Trust with the donation of ten 19-inch computer screens and stands.

“Our partnership with the Trust goes well beyond simple membership and it is great that we have been able to help in this way, in addition to the valuable work UK Power Networks staff do on their volunteering days.”

The firm’s employees are entitled to take two paid days a year, volunteering with local charities, community and conservation groups, as part of the company’s established community scheme.
