Supporting Signpost, a West Lothian charity that helps young people
During the meeting, Russell enquired further into the nature of Signpost and its business operations so that he could propose a system that best suits their needs now and into the future. Upon hearing about the charity's work with young people and their families, Russell was very moved and thought Berry could do more to help the charity. After discussing Signpost with Berry's directors, it was agreed that Berry would donate all of the hardware of the phone system free of charge. In response to this gesture, Lesley Mount Project Manager for Signpost said:
"We are hugely grateful to Russell Vance and the Berry Telecom team for donating our new phone system. Signpost is a small charity in West Lothian which supports around 450 local families of young people with additional needs, via our helpline and other award-winning services. Demand for the service is growing each year, and this gift will help us to respond quickly to families in need, ensuring that they are not kept waiting to talk to our support staff."
Signpost's new phone system has since been installed and is already improving the service their clients receive as they can now connect immediately with the right person. Berry's Russell Vance said:
