Odd Socks? Raise money for World Down Syndrome Day

Odd socks may sound like a strange dress code for work, but businesses up and down the country are showing off their weirdest and most wonderful socks on Monday 21st March for World Down Syndrome Day.

The Odd Socks campaign is designed to get people and businesses talking about Down Syndrome in a light hearted way, as well as raise money to support children and families with the condition.

Down Syndrome is caused by three copies of chromosome 21 in a child's DNA, instead of two. In the majority of cases, this is not due to an inheritance of the condition or something that has taken place before or during pregnancy; most frequently it is just a 'one-off genetic mistake in the sperm or egg'.

ECCDS (Education Centre for Children with Down Syndrome) is an educational charity which supports children and families in the North East. It aims to provide help and essential skills to new parents and families with children who have Down Syndrome.

Maggie Hart, founder of the organisation, says that the Odd Socks campaign is vital to get people talking and raising money, 'This year we would like as many people as possible to participate in this celebration and invite you and your colleagues to wear the most random and outrageous socks in exchange for a small donation.'

'By doing this you are helping to raise awareness of Down Syndrome as well as raising vital funds that will enable us to continue to support our children and families.'

If you'd like to get involved or you'd like more information, please visit the ECCDS site, or the site for World Down Syndrome Day

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
