Giving a little, for the sheer satisfaction it brings.
Our own business objectives and goals for the future success and longevity of Contedia are naturally a primary focus for us, but as a group of individuals with big hearts, there’s more to our business than the concern with profits alone.
The Pontefract Family Centre is a local charity and an important hub for families in our area.
Providing day opportunities to families in our local community, the Family Centre offers its customers help with sessions in numeracy, literacy, reading as well as many artistic and social activities. With only minimum income to provide its services, the charity relies on donations and help.
When the Family Centre reached out to Contedia to see if we could help stretch their modest budget for some critical IT upgrades, we were pleased to be able to help with some consultancy, supply of equipment at cost, and our installation and support services free of charge in an effort to provide the maximum benefit possible.
Contedia have delivered an exemplary service to Pontefract Family Centre, setting up our IT network and providing additional support when necessary. As a charity we have limited resources but Contedia have gone above and beyond ensuring that we have the best IT hardware and support. We would recommend Contedia to anyone who needs patient, expert IT support.

Ackworth Howard School is a local village junior and infants school with history dating back to 1833.
The school’s mission is to ensure that the message of living life to the full, of loving and of learning permeate all we do, and to be encouraged by the language of our vision which speaks of developing the whole child through opportunities to develop the mind body and spirit ensuring confidence, growth, transformation and community – all essential qualities in enabling people to flourish.
Whilst the school is particularly well run and continually invests in its facilities, Contedia was pleased to be able to help with some outdoor decoration supplies to further help the school to maintain its high standard of appearance and coordination with the school’s colours…which, coincidentally are close to those of Contedia!
Dating back to 1963, Inglebrook School was a small, independantly run, private school in Pontefract, that fostered the very best education amongst its pupils and nursery children and endeavoured to ensure all children fulfilled their potential.
Under the leadership of its extraordinary founder and Headmistress, Mrs Joyce Bellamy, Inglebrook provided a traditional education which prepared each child for whichever school they may later went on to attend.
With the pressures of maintaining the very highest standard of tuition whilst continuing to meet the requirements of a modern curriculum, which demands an early introduction and education in computers and the Internet, Inglebrook made a significant investment in equipment with which to introduce computer studies classes to its older students. As is ever the case, it can be the professional services to install, configure and maintain such systems that actually outweigh the cost of tangible equipment alone and therefore Contedia were pleased to have been able to provide its services, free of charge, to fully equip and prepare Inglebrook’s computing facilities for use. Our team even invested in and the decoration of the computer room with educational wall posters!
We continued to support Inglebrook in the maintenance and support of their systems in the hope that we were making a small contribution to the learning of computer use amongst the school’s eager pupils.
Sadly, Inglebrook school was forced to close its doors for good due to the falling demand locally, but our involvement remains a fond memory of being able to provide help to a local institution when it was needed.
Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people. It is dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change.
The prospect of being homeless might seem a distant, almost inconceivable threat to most of us, but what if…? What if you were single, homeless and alone? Contedia can think of no better way to make a small difference to the lives of those who are unfortunate enough to find themselves in such a dreadful position at Christmas than to make a small contribution with huge gains.
Rather than gift our valued clients at Christmas, we trust they share our thought that spending that same money on a charitable donation to Crisis is worthwhile.
