Charities we support
We strongly believe in supporting local communities and charities. We are committed to providing support any way we can; from providing IT services, free phone lines and broadband; to raising money from fundraising events. If you are looking for free IT support for your local community or charity please get in touch and we will help in any way we can.
We are committed to providing opportunities for the disadvantaged; opportunities for local students and graduates; rehabilitation and education; long term stability; on the job training; personal development programmes.
We currently support the list of charities below. However, we also actively get involved in Sports Relief, Children in Need, Operation Christmas Child Samaritan’s Purse and many other charity fundraisers that take place throughout the year, whilst actively searching for new charities and people in the local community that might need our help.
The Beau Halo Trust
Silver Lining helped new local charity The Beau Halo Trust reach charity status in 2016 by fundraising through various events. We provided them with a website and emails, and we continue to manage their social media. Allan Packer MD of Silver Lining is also a trustee of the charity. The Trust's aim is to offer and provide emotional, practical and financial support to bereaved parents within the local community. Eventually, they hope to provide a 24/7 service with an on-call service option for newly bereaved parents.
The Highlands Hub
The Highlands Hub provides essential ICT and meeting facilities to all members of the local Fareham community around Fareham Park. The area around The Hub is in one of the most deprived areas in the UK. Access to computer and internet services in particular is challenging and can make searching for jobs, housing and advice difficult. We provide the hub with free phone lines, reliable connectivity and a secure IT infrastructure. We initially installed 5 dumb terminals, print and fax facilities, cabling, networking and a secure WiFi hotspot. We are also committed to providing ongoing support, should The Hub wish to expand, we will be ready on hand to help.
Southampton Hospital Charity
Silver Lining support the young adults at the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Unit at the Southampton General Hospital. The Unit cares for over 200 patients from the Southern region. These patients spend weeks to months each year in isolation care to try to prolong their life expectancy. Only half of those with CF can expect to reach their 40th birthday. We support two elements of the Southampton General Hospital Charity. We provide free high speed Internet, IT infrastructure and media services, provision, management and support. And secondly patients now have access to iPads, free apps on the iTunes store, laptops, large flat screen TV’s and unlimited free internet, which helps to improve their time spent at the hospital.
Cystic Fibrosis Charity Ball
Silver Lining is proud to continue to support the Cystic Fibrosis Autumn Ball. This was first held in 2012 where we were Platinum Sponsors and provided direct support and sponsorship to the event, which raised in excess of £30,700.00 for Cystic Fibrosis charities. The event is running again in 2014, where again we will be sponsoring and supporting the event as much as we possibly can.
The Cystic Fibrosis Autumn Ball raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which is the UK’s only national charity dedicated to all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). They fund research to treat and cure CF and aim to ensure appropriate clinical care and support for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
Pompey in the Community
Pompey in the Community is an independent charitable trust affiliated to Portsmouth Football Club. They currently deliver educational programmes to over 8,000 individuals annually. The programmes vary from fully structured sessions integrated into a schools timetable, to ‘one-off’ bespoke activities as requested by schools and other community groups.
We provided Pompey in the Community with a free of charge Splicecom phone system for 14 users within their team. We also provide 24/7 maintenance and support and data connectivity.
Silver Lining support the Samaritan’s Purse UK every Christmas by filling shoe boxes with christmas presents for under privileged children. The Samaritan's Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in need in countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
