The Ascensos contact centre in Motherwell is displaying great community spirit to help the Scottish Spina Bifida Association in North Lanarkshire.

The company opened the centre in January in the former Lloyds Banking Group premises in Airbles Road.

And while waiting for contracts to be agreed they came up with a proposition to provide vital support for the charity.

SSBA supports over 350 children and young people in North Lanarkshire who have been affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus which cause lifelong complex disabilities for which there is no cure.

Deborah Roe of SSBA explained: “We are almost entirely self-funded and need to raise a million pounds each year to run our family support centre and specialised services.”

Ascensos stepped in to offer their call centre team free of charge.

Managing director John Devlin said: “We’re delighted to help. We offered to assist with fundraising efforts while we put the finishing touches to our contact centre. This helped us to launch our technology and to raise awareness of the vital work done by this charity.”

Anyone who would like to support the Scottish Spina Bifida Association with donations can call their general number on 01236 794500.

Anyone who has been affected by spina bifida and/or its related condition of hydrocephalus can contact the charity on their locall helpline 08459 111112 or visit (http://www.ssba.org.uk|ssba|ssba}
