Colin Ringer, Managing Director of ICRTouch, which specialises in retail software development said: “We create a company magazine three times a year which is sent out to our partner network. Some of our suppliers advertise in this magazine and we then donate the profits from the advertising to a local charity.

“We decided on Beaulieu Respite as the beneficiary this year. After visiting Beaulieu and meeting some of the young people and the work the charity does, we knew we had made the right decision.”

Tony Wake, Chairman of the charity commented: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this fantastic donation. ICRTouch are yet another very kind-hearted Island company helping us make our children and young people’s lives that little bit nicer.

“In this instance, the money will be used for trips both on and off Island. These trips and our other activities simply could not be achieved without these donations. Thank you Colin and all of your staff.”

Beaulieu Respite is a charity which supplies toys, trips, parties, computers and specialised equipment to Beaulieu House. They have also carried out larger projects such as a soft play area for users who cannot access public places, a computerised sensory room. All members of the charity are volunteers so almost every penny raised goes directly to the children, Website www.beaulieurespite.com FB ”Beaulieu Respite Isle of Wight”
