Guernsey Mind’s work within the community to promote positive mental health has been made significantly easier by the donation of two computers from C5 Alliance Group.

The team at Guernsey Mind were previously doing all of their vital charity work from two outdated machines.

As well as donating the new PCs, the IT services and business solutions company also committed staff time to improving the efficiency of the office infrastructure going forward. The team from C5 equipped the Guernsey Mind office with a network, performed a data migration to bring legacy data from their old systems onto the new ones and configured their broadband, printers and emails. The firm will also provide on-going, systems support free of charge.

Emily Litten, operations and development manager at Guernsey Mind said: “We’ve just taken on a new member of staff so the donation came at a good time. Beforehand we were working with just one battered laptop and an old PC.

“It’s great to be able to get on with our jobs without worrying about technical difficulties and things running slowly.”

Marc Lainé, managing director of C5 Alliance Group in Guernsey said: “As C5’s charity of choice, we are always looking for ways to support Mind and the fantastic work it does.

“Proper equipment and technical support is immensely important to charities, something which is often overlooked. The help that Mind provide can be life changing and we hope that our contribution will help them in carrying out this work as efficiently as possible.”
