Southampton's new coworking space, SO Fourteen, has come to our rescue after hearing that our fundraising and office team in Chandler's Ford has so far been without the Internet or telephones for over a week, due to a problem with our provider.

As a charity which provides free and local support to anyone living with cancer in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, we need to raise £32,000 every week to support our six Support Centres. After appealing for a temporary home, Alex Hilton-Baird, SO Fourteen's Founder and Managing Director, came to the rescue and offered to host our entire team for free at their coworking space at Woollen Hall in Castle Way, Southampton. 

Our Head of Development, Sofie Bennett, said:

For a charity which relies on voluntary donations and fundraising to thrive, we can't survive without the Internet or telephones and so when everything stopped working it was a real emergency for us. We're so grateful to Alex and his team for coming to our rescue!

Alex Hilton-Baird, said:

We've created a modern and friendly coworking space for everyone to enjoy, and so collaboration and community is therefore key to our ethos. When we heard that Wessex Cancer Trust, which does so much good work for local people, was in trouble, we wanted to step in and help them.

We're hoping everything will be back up and running by the first week of March.
