MACS Software, a leading supplier of software solutions for warehousing, distribution and manufacturing has officially announced that it will be supporting the Leicester Childrens Hospital for the foreseeable future.
The formal announcement coincides with the completion of a strategic move close to Magna Park in Lutterworth from Daventry. However, unlike other company decisions, this one is down to the staff. In the last few years, a variety of charities have benefited from the companies donations but recently, staff had proposed a more formal arrangement; that of an official adoption. In accordance with the staffs wishes, MACS has officially notified the Leicestershire Childrens Hospital of its intention.
MACS develops software for companies across the UK and beyond, improving systems in their factories and warehouses, providing better customer service, reducing staffing costs, optimising storage space and maximising the use of raw materials. In a similar manner, MACS intends to use its skills to strategically assist the LCH in funding specific equipment costs over the forthcoming years.
Managing Director Tony Liddar said, Since our formation in 1990, MACS Software Limited has quickly established itself as a provider of bespoke software solutions to small, medium and large enterprises. The company has been ranked several times as one of the fastest growing technology businesses in the Midlands. The decision to assist the LCH is not only a personal challenge on behalf of the company but one that MACS hopes will influence other companies in the area to take action and assist them in their actions to help the LCH.
Jo Killick, Community and Events Fundraising Manager said we are delighted that MACS Software are adopting the University Hospitals of Leicester Childrens Hospital as their chosen charity for the foreseeable future. We see this as a very positive fundraising partnership, working together with the staff at MACS to raise both funds and awareness. This is also a very exciting time as the Childrens Hospital will be undergoing a massive redevelopment through the Pathway Project and we hope that MACS and their staff will play a significant role through their fundraising efforts.
The first event or participation accompanied by a number of suppliers is planned for early 2006, where they will be looking to raise funds for the first project on behalf of the LCH.
