Since 1998 Multitech have provided support for their two chosen Children’s Charities:
- The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, commonly known as the JDRF who carry out research into diabetes in particular the more severe Type 1 variant in children, actively working to find a cure for this debilitating disease.
- The El Shaddai Orphanage in Goa India which works in the slums to house and educate abandoned street children.
Our charity committee, comprising of elected staff members, considers charitable requests and decides which charities to support. In addition to the JDRF and El Shaddai Orphanage, this year Multitech is supporting Farleigh Hospice, Combat Stress and Trees for Cities.

Supporters of The East Of England Games
Multitech were proud sponsors of the Paediatric Diabetes East Of England Games.
Under-16s came together at the inaugural Paediatric Diabetes East of England Games, designed to encourage exercise and sport as part of daily management of the condition.
The event was held at Cambridge’s Wilberforce Road athletics ground where teams from 17 of the region’s hospitals competed.
The games were organised by the East of England Paediatric Diabetes Network and attracted 500 children and their families.
Volunteers from Hills Road Sixth Form College and Multitech helped to run the event, and we would like to especially thank Blakely Electrics for their joint sponsorship.
Multitech Site Services are the official sponsor of Bishops Stortford Amateur Boxing Club (B.S.A.B.C.) and were responsible for the creation of the club website at www.stortfordboxingclub.co.uk
As a community club it is in operation seven days a week and provides boxing training for all ages and abilities.
For those you wish to keep fit without physical contact the club runs regular boxercise classes along with beginners sessions for a first taste of the noble art.
Dedicated amateur training for more serious carded boxers and White Collar sessions are also held throughout the week including weekends.
The club and boxing promote many virtues such as courage, confidence, discipline, respect and unrivalled levels of fitness.
“We are grateful for the support Multitech have given the BSABC over many years which has enabled us to help and work with so many people in the local community.”
Scott Gleed, Chairman BSABC
“I believe that BSABC is a valuable community resource and that young people in particular can benefit from the many life skills that can be taught through boxing”.
