A Poole IT firm has thrown its weight behind a national charity which provides free holidays for teenagers and young people with cancer.

AnyTech Solutions has chosen the Youth Cancer Trust (YCT) as its charity of the year after being impressed by the valuable work it does for hundreds of 14 to 30 year olds every year.

The trust welcomes guests from anywhere in the UK and Ireland to stay in its Tracy Ann House at Alum Chine in Bournemouth where they can relax and enjoy activities.

AnyTech’s support has already enabled guests to have fast, reliable access to the internet. The Fleets Lane company also plans to offer more IT expertise and support along with promoting the charity wherever possible.

Chris Palmer, who is managing director of AnyTech Solutions, said: “The trust’s holidays are tremendously valuable in helping young people with cancer relax and have fun just like any other young person.

“At the same time, they offer the opportunity for them to mix with peers who understand what it is like to have cancer.

“We are proud to play a part in this vital work and hope that our support will allow the trust to help even more young people.”

Youth Cancer Trust

The YCT receives no government funding and needs to raise about £350,000 a year.

It was founded by Brenda Clark in 1997 and helps about 250 young cancer patients annually.

It costs £500 to provide a holiday for a young person and £4,000 for a group of eight young people.

Brenda said: “We are incredibly grateful to AnyTech for choosing us as their charity of the year.

“We would not be able to offer the help we do without the backing of such companies as AnyTech as well as our other wonderful supporters, fundraisers and volunteers.”

Anytech Solutions’ services include business IT support, supply of hardware and software for business users, cloud and hosted applications and services, high performance computers for CAD, 3D Rendering and professional gaming.
