PRISYM ID is making a cash donation to two local charities that will be supporting vulnerable people throughout the festive period on either side of the Atlantic.
The Link Visiting Scheme, based in Wescott Road, will receive a significant gift after PRISYM ID pledged to donate money it would otherwise have spent on corporate cards, gifts and hospitality to designated charities near its UK and US offices.
With a mission to reduce loneliness, the Link Visiting Scheme helps older and vulnerable people to connect with volunteers who provide company and friendship throughout the year, but particularly so during Christmas.
The firm is also making a similar donation to the Westborough Food Pantry, a US food bank based near its US office in Westborough, Massachusetts.
PRISYM ID, whose labeling technologies played a role in helping pharmaceutical companies and ventilator manufacturers to lead the fight against Covid-19, said it hoped the cash would help the charities reach out to more people.
Richard Adams, Chief Executive of PRISYM ID, said:
“We felt this was a more meaningful and appropriate way of using this money at the end of an extremely difficult year.
“The Link Visiting Scheme provides a wonderful service for our community and we wanted to make our own contribution to support its brilliant work, which is particularly important over the festive period.”
