Local charity benefits from COP26 legacy

With time and money saved, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity can confidently focus on raising essential funds.

About the Client

Xerox was the official print provider for the COP26 conference. A legacy of this landmark event was the distribution of the remanufactured devices to local charities, including Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity (GCHC).

The Challenge

An influx of new staff required swift onboarding

  • Money spent on print services diverts from supporting the hospital

  • Sensitive data needs careful management

  • Onboarding new staff requires minimal distraction

“Having to fix your printer login is the last thing anyone wants to be doing when they arrive at a new job,” explains Steven Mair, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. Managing the sensitive data collected via parental consent forms securely is also a priority for the Charity, and dependency on donations is more challenging than ever.

“It’s really important to make sure that each individual donor is thanked properly.”

The fact that these devices are part of the continuing legacy of COP26, which was an important event for the city of Glasgow, is a huge plus for us as well.”
