Who do we support
Black Bear IT Solutions and Black Bear Computers formally traded as Black Box Computers and has been a stable business in and around the Lancaster area for well over 17 years. During this time the company has changed and evolved including its name change but the core business values have remained the same.
We believe in supporting the local economy and small to medium enterprises, also in this belief we believe that local companies should support local charities and the needs of the local community. Some of the support we offer are to other companies that offer charitable solutions to the local community also.
As a company we support a vast array of local charitable drives and charities in general. Although we would love to support all charities we don't want our efforts to be spread too thin so on this page you will find just some of the charities that we support.
If you feel you could benefit as a charity or if you have an event that we can help with please let us know as we always aspire to help as much as we can.
Unique Kids & Co
Unique Kidz and Co provides specialist services for disabled children and their families. The charity was founded in 2009 by two mums of disabled children unable to find suitable childcare or social activities for their children.
Unique Kidz and Co now support over 120 children with a range of disabilities.
Our services allow parents and carers of disabled children to return to work or education, spend time with other family members, or have some much needed respite. The quality of Unique Kidz and Co services has been recognised nationally, with our provision rated as outstanding by OFSTED in 2010 and we were awarded a Children in Need grant in 2011.
If you have a child with a disability and would like them to play and socialise with children their own age in a setting which will provide the specialist support they require then Unique Kidz and Co can help you. We welcome new families to come and visit our clubs to see firsthand the quality of our provision and the varied range of activities on offer which meet the needs of all of the children and young people who love to spend their time at Unique Kidz and Co.
St John's Hospice
St John’s Hospice has been supporting patients, families and the wider community in North Lancashire and the South Lakes since 1986. Serving a population of over 250,000 people, we are specialists in palliative care for a wide range of life shortening conditions.
These wonderful services, and the many more that we offer, are only possible because of our supporters. We are not part of the NHS, we are a local charity. We only receive 30% of our core monies from government funding.
That means that we rely on our wonderful community and our fundraising activities to raise the remaining 70%. We have to do this every day to ensure that our services remain available and free of charge to everyone when they need us most.
