An IT advisory firm from Bristol has chosen Children's Hospice South West as its charity for 2018/2019. Mosaic Island has become the latest aspect of the community to pull together for the hospice, which provides care for children suffering a broad range debilitative conditions.

Founded in 2006, Mosaic Island is a consultancy which helps clients with a range of IT advisory and implementation services, spanning strategy and architecture design through to project support and execution. Mosaic Island works works with both private sector businesses and government institutions; the firm recently was named a G-Cloud 10 supplier, meaning it serves as a preferred supplier for ‘Cloud Support’ services to UK’s public sector.

As part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility commitments, Mosaic Island has announced that its chosen charity for the next year is Children's Hospice South West. Caring for over 500 families across the South West, the hospice group provides care for children with life-limiting conditions, as well as support for their families.

The care on offer is wide ranging, including respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end-of-life care, while looking to support and enrich the lives of the children and their families. The group has been operating for more than 25 years, and now runs three hospices; Little Bridge House in Devon, Charlton Farm in Somerset and Little Harbour in Cornwall.

In a statement regarding Mosaic Island’s support, a spokesperson pledged, “As well as taking part in many fundraising activities over the course of the year, Mosaic Island will also donate up to one day [Charity Day] per year of each employee’s time to support this charity by volunteering or taking part in a big team event.”

The commitment to the hospice comes as the community as a whole continues to rally in support of the organisation. A recent Quarry School Falmouth reunion raised some £26,000 for the hospice, while Bristol City Football Club’s continuing partnership has generated more than £120,000 in funds for the group, and Somerset County Cricket Club batsman and former England star Marcus Trescothick recently braved Storm Callum in an effort to raise funds via a sponsored cycle ride.
