An I.T. support company based in Great Yarmouth has made an impact not only in the business world but in their community, having raised the funds to install a public defibrillator on their premises, which can be used by the whole industrial estate they’re based on.

CSSCloud raised the funds to buy the equipment at their open day on July 6, which compromised of a street party as well as letting the public see their newly refurbished offices.

The offices were converted thanks to grants from Suffolk County Council and New Anglia Growth Hub.

The open day at Gapton Hall Industrial Estate also saw a raffle held and visitors enjoying retro arcade games.

This equipment is provided in partnership with Heart2Heart Norfolk, with enough money being raised to make an additional donation to the charity.

Peter Green of CSSCloud said: “Hopefully, we won’t have to use the defibrillator, but it definitely makes us feel more at ease.”
