Transcendit take on the Great North Run

We're running the Great North Run for CHUF; the Children's Heart Unit Fund. CHUF's mission is to help to children and young people with heart conditions, by providing lifelong support to them and their families.

The Children's Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle is one of only two units in the UK that can offer pediatric transplants and bridge to transplant operations. The unit regularly treats critically ill babies and children from across the UK.

The team is made up of Directors Tom Tinsley, Adam Kuznesof, Dave Scott; web developers Adam McCormick and Christophe Duhaut; business development assistant Kate Johnson; and friends of Transcendit Louise Robson and Mandy Preece.

Dave Scott has a personal relationship with CHUF, 'The original charity was set up by my mam back in the 70s. After we formed Transcendit we wanted to be associated with a charity - and because of my connection with CHUF it felt the natural choice. We've been working with them ever since.'

'The Great North Run is such an iconic part of this city; and with it being their 35th anniversary, it's just the perfect fundraising activity for CHUF. We're really looking forward to the challenge, bringing our team at Transcendit even closer together and raising money for a local charity.'

'CHUF is a huge part of our community,' says Director Tom Tinsley. 'But it goes beyond Newcastle - it changes lives up and down the country. It's a really wonderful charity, and we're very proud to support them.

A lot of the team are already training. It is the first time Adam McCormick has taken on the Great North Run, and he is looking forward to the challenge, ‘I play a lot of five aside football, so I enjoy running, but I’ve not done anything like the Great North Run before. It’s a great challenge to aim for, and it’s good to raise money for a really worthy cause.’

Director Adam Kuznesof completed the Great North Run last year, and is excited to give it another go in 2019. ‘CHUF is such an important organisation, and the donations they receive really make a huge difference to those struggling. It’s great to be able to do things like this as a business, and I’m thrilled so many of our support and web development teams have got involved.’

Tom Tinsley has set a high funding target for the Transcendit team, ‘We're hoping to raise £4,000 for CHUF. This will help them continue running the services that so many young people in the North East depend on.’

‘Please give what you can; every contribution makes a difference and is truly appreciated.

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.

Everything explained very well. Great service, thank you. Susan Hunt, York Minster
