razorblue supports the Great North Air Ambulance

Multi award-winning IT Managed Service Provider, razorblue has grown exponentially over the last few years and has supported the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) through various challenges and fundraising activities.

Over the last three years, the company has raised over £4,500 with clothing collections, supporting the Air Angel’s Ball, golf days, the Hamsterley Beast Cycling event and the Great North Run, as well as making payroll donations accessible to all staff, and is set to take on another challenge imminently.

Dan Kitchen, CEO at razorblue said: “As a business, we are committed to supporting multiple charities across the region and are frequently involved with fundraising events and campaigns. We are proud of our long-term support for GNAAS, especially after what has been a difficult period during and after the pandemic.

“GNAAS rescues hundreds of people every year, which is only possible because of donations. Our team recognises how vital their support is and is committed to continue raising money for this amazing cause.”

As part of this long-term relationship with GNAAS, razorblue was tasked with fitting out three meeting rooms with Microsoft Teams Rooms equipment earlier this year, which has revolutionised the charity’s internal and external meeting space, improved communications and facilitated remote working.

Clive James, head of IT at GNAAS said: “Microsoft Teams Rooms have transformed the way in which we conduct meetings, both internally – bringing together teams across different locations, and externally for nurturing new and existing partnerships.

“The whole team benefits from this easy-to-use system, which provides high quality video and audio capabilities. Thanks to the team at razorblue for the seamless installation and additional support and training provided.”

For their latest fundraising campaign, the razorblue team will take on the national Three Peaks challenge on May 14th with the aim of raising £3,000 to support the critical work that the charity does, 365 days a year. The company was grateful to receive generous jacket sponsorship from MI Supplies, a Teesside based clothing provider, and Regatta to wear both during their training walks and the challenge itself.

Established in 2006, razorblue provides managed IT, cybersecurity services, connectivity, cloud, and business application solutions to businesses across a wide range of industries, working with over 500 businesses across the UK. The company now boasts seven offices, a headcount of over 140, and is on track to hit £13m in turnover this financial year.
