£1,000 Sigma Connected donation will support sexual violence charity
A Birmingham business outsourcing specialist has donated £1,000 from its Community Foundation to West Midlands charity, Rape and Sexual Violence Project (RSVP).
Sigma Connected – which provides contact centre services for the utilities, retail, telecommunications, and financial sectors – has given the money to the charity to support its work in helping victims of rape and sexual abuse across Birmingham and Solihull.
The charity was nominated by Barbara, a real-time analyst at the company, who has experienced the support of RSVP.
On the matter, Barbara has said:
“I will never forget the help I received by the team at RSVP, so I wanted to do something to give back to them.
I had the charity’s full support three years ago after I experienced an incident on a bus in Birmingham. They found me counselling from a specialist team and helped me overcome some horrific panic attacks I ensured for months after the incident. I couldn’t have got through those initial weeks and months without them.
The work RSVP do is invaluable, and I hope our donation will allow the team to continue its expert work with both females and males across the region.”
Sophie Fletcher, Fundraiser at RSVP added: “On behalf of RSVP, I’d like to thank Barbara and everyone at Sigma Connected for this kind donation. Our work across Birmingham and into Solihull is all about engaging with people who have suffered any kind of sexual violence and, to do that, we need as much backing as possible. This will make a huge difference moving into 2024”.
