JSPC Computer Services sponsors Atlantic Splash

JSPC, a leading ICT technical support company based in Sompting, today announced it is one of the sponsors of Atlantic Splash, a team of five men who will be rowing the 3,000 mile journey across the Atlantic.

The decision to support the Atlantic Splash team came after Managing Director of JSPC, James Stoner, heard about the extraordinary project and felt inspired to become involved. “The team will be taking on a grueling challenge and showing true commitment and determination,” comments James.  “We feel honoured and delighted in being able to help them achieve their goal and raise money for some very well-deserving charities.”

Atlantic Splash is the story of five men from Worthing Rowing Club who will take on The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in a bid to raise a target of £200,000 for charity. The challenge will see Neal Marsh, Tom Hyland, Marc Alderman, Terry Munson and Bastien Leclair set off from San Sebastian de La Gomera in the Canaries Islands on 2nd December 2013, and row across the Atlantic Ocean to the finish at Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour in Antigua. The team is likely to face tropical storms, 50 foot waves, startled marine life and physical exhaustion, not to mention the fact they will be cohabiting on board a vessel that is less than ten metres long while rowing at all time of night and day in continuous two-hour shifts.

Following months of physical and mental training, the crew will hope to complete their phenomenal challenge in 35 to 45 days with the aim of raising £200,000 both to cover the costs of the challenge and to support four charities: The Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, The Tall Ships Youth Trust, The British Heart Foundation and the Macular Disease Society.

JSPC is well known for supporting local community projects and is already heavily involved with the local charity “love your hospital” and also plays a large part in the Northbrook College Apprenticeship Scheme. JSPC are one of Atlantic Splash’s corporate sponsors for the race and they will be tracking the team’s progress throughout their journey. As well as sponsoring the team JSPC will also be providing them with an iPad so that they can stay in touch with friends and family throughout their challenge.

JSPC to host Annual ICT Roadshow at the Amex Stadium for the Education Sector

JSPC Computer Services will once again be hosting their Annual Education Roadshow to schools interested in finding out more about the latest ICT solutions and products.

Along with their partners, JSPC will offer advice on subjects including hardware, wireless solutions, single server solutions, installations, tablet devices and anti-virus software.

There will also be talks by guest speakers from Cloud on the Meraki wireless solution; Avantis on an education based tablet solution; Redstor on data management and protection; Eset on antivirus software and from Exa Networks, an education focused Internet Service Provider, as well as JSPC’s own team of specialists.

Throughout the day there will be organised break out areas to give attendees the opportunity to speak to JSPC staff and service providers in greater detail. There will also be a demo area to allow those attending to experience some of the products and services discussed such as LearnPads and an interactive table.

To close the day Sharon Girling OBE, a retired law enforcement officer and Child Protection Advocate at the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR), will be speaking on ‘Understanding Educating Young People on their Online Responsibilities.’ This will be followed by an open Q&A session to close the day.

The event will take place on Friday 6th December, 9.30am-2.15pm, at the Amex Stadium and is free of charge to attend. Refreshments and lunch will be provided and there will also be an opportunity to enjoy a tour of the new Amex Stadium, the home of Brighton and Hove Football Club.

JSPC launched their first Annual Roadshow last year and the interest generated from the success of last year’s event and a Broadband Seminar held at Shoreham Airport in March has encouraged them to hold another event.

There are now only a limited amount of spaces left to this year’s roadshow. If you are in the education sector and would like to find out more or to book tickets please visit: http://thrabrec.fikket.com/event/jspc-annual-roadshow-2013
