News from 2012
techMARK Awards 2011 raises £7,015 – A massive thank you to all attendees for donating so generously to our charity collection at the techMARK Awards Dinner. We raised an incredible £7,015. On behalf of the chosen charities, the Brentwood Catholic Children's Society and The Prince's Trust, thank you so much. This will have an immediate positive impact on our work and we are very grateful to Ford Sinclair and PwC for making this happen.
