We did it! Transcendit finish the Great North Run for CHUF

We’re very pleased to announce that on Sunday 8th September, our team took on the Great North Run for CHUF, the Children’s Heart Unit Fund. The Transcendit Great North Run 2019 team was made up of Mandy Preece, Louise Robson, Kate Johnson, Dave Scott, Adam McCormick, Adam Kuznesof, Christophe Duhaut and Tom Tinsley. 

Every single one of our runners crossed the finish line, with Tom Tinsley leading the pack. Tom completed the Great North Run in 1 hour and 31 minutes, and came second in his age category! We are absolutely thrilled for the runners who took on the challenge, and once they’d got their breath back we caught up with them to find out how the race had gone.

‘My legs are still a bit wobbly,’ says web developer Adam McCormick. ‘I was a bit nervous, but it was a great experience. I’d definitely be up for doing it next year. It was amazing running in such a huge group, and made even better by the money we raised for CHUF [Children’s Heart Unit Fund].’

‘The Great North Run was so much fun,’ says web developer Christophe Duhaut. ‘It was a really amazing atmosphere. I started off running with Adam K and Tom Tinsley, but Tom left both myself and Adam in the dust. I finished the race in 1 hour 37 minutes. I would have liked to finish it in an hour and a half, but I’ll aim for that next time.’

‘I wanted to complete the run in under two hours,’ says Director Adam Kuznesof. ‘In the end I was a minute over, which was frustrating! I was also passed by Superman and Cinderella - but the worst one was Scooby Doo. That was particularly difficult to swallow! But it was a really amazing atmosphere, and everyone had a lot of fun. I’m incredibly proud of all of our runners, and the amount of money we raised for CHUF.’

At time of writing, Transcendit had raised £4,043.15 for CHUF, the Children’s Heart Unit Fund. The charity offers support and services for children and young people in the North East and beyond who are born with or develop heart conditions. 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.

‘CHUF is very close to our hearts,’ says Adam Kuznesof. ‘We often choose to fundraise for CHUF because the original charity was set up by Director Dave Scott’s mum, Anne Scott. It’s a wonderful charity that provides funding for equipment and research, but also holistic care for young people with heart conditions and support for their families. We’re very proud to support them.’

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.
