As we help more and more businesses prepare for the 2025 traditional telephone network switch-off and upgrade them to VoIP phone systems we have noticed that lots of old telephone systems are going to waste and often just get thrown away. To help combat this wastage we have decided to offer all businesses up to £500 towards their old telephone system when upgrading to VoIP so that we can recycle or re-use their old system elsewhere.
As part of this we have decided that whatever amount we are able to offer for the old telephone system we will then match this amount with a donation to our chosen charity. Herefordshire Headway, who have been a customer of ours for a number of years now do some absolutely fantastic work throughout Herefordshire which a lot of people are not aware of. We feel this is a great opportunity to help boost awareness of their work alongside our campaign to ensure all local businesses are prepared for the 2025 traditional telephone network switch-off.
Our aim is simple, to raise as much money as possible for Herefordshire Headway in conjunction with helping as many local businesses as possible make the switch to VoIP and prepare for 2025! Not only will this help cut down on the wastage of old telephone systems but the money will be going towards a fantastic cause. We will accumulate any money we raise throughout 2022 with the aim of making the donation to Herefordshire Headway in December 2022.
To help with the fundraising we also plan to do a sponsored walk in May 2022 up the Cefyn yr Ystrad mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The mountain is 2025 feet high which fits very appropriately with our aim of spreading the message about the 2025 traditional telephone network switch-off!
Not only will the Redline team be climbing the mountain though, we will also be temporarily relocating our office to the base of the mountain for the day, demonstrating the fantastic remote working functionality that VoIP telephony offers ahead of the 2025 switch. The team will climb the mountain in two separate groups, allowing the other half of the team to continue working as normal (well kind of!) at the base of the mountain using VoIP mobile apps and 4G mobile broadband!
All sponsorship money that we raise from this somewhat different task will then also be donated to Herefordshire Headway in December!
