New Partnership: Derby County Community Trust x Barron McCann

Leading tech firm Barron McCann is latest to show its support for charity Derby County Community Trust

A LEADING tech business has joined forces with a charity improving the lives of Derby people through sport, health and education.

Barron McCann, which provides IT services to customers throughout the UK and Europe and has its headquarters in Derby, is the latest business to become a partner of Derby County Community Trust as it continues to show support for those in the community in need of help.

The Trust – the charitable arm of the newly-promoted Championship football club – aims to improve the lives and communities of local people through sport, physical activity, health and education. It helps more than 25,000 people a year.

Derby County Community Trust was formed in 2008 and works with local and national partners to help people fulfil their potential.

Lucy Laughton, Business Support and CSR Coordinator at Barron McCann – and a huge Rams fan – said: “We are thrilled to be Derby County Community Trust Partners, and to be a part of their network of supporters.

“The work of Derby County Community Trust is a vital lifeline to so many people and changes their lives for the better. They offer a wide range of community services that can support our staff here at Barron McCann, and their families, and collaboration is our mutual core value.

“We’re looking forward to working closely together to see how we can continue to support people and help them further.

“It’s a great way of giving back to the community supporting the trust.”

HR & Employment Law firm Precept – part of the Barron McCann group of companies – is also a Trust partner and, earlier this year, Barron McCann worked with British homeware and gifting company Milly Green to distribute 1,600 eco-friendly, reusable cups to local charities, including Derby County Community Trust.

At Christmas, the company supported the Belper Christmas Shoebox Appeal and, more recently, it welcomed pupils from West Park School to its Derby headquarters as part of the Spondon school’s careers programme.

Pete Collins is the Business Development Manager at Derby County Community Trust. He said: “We are extremely grateful to Barron McCann for agreeing to become Trust partners and look forward to working more closely with them in the future.”
