Chain of Hope
Now in its 14th year, the Chain of Hope Gala Ballis the flagship fundraiser for the charity held this year at the prestigious Grosvenor House, Park Lane in London. The Gala Ball has been attended by celebrities such as Sir Mick Jagger, Rio Ferdinand, Rod Stewart, and Nicole Scherzinger in recent years. Chain of Hope brings lifesaving heart treatments to children in developing and war-torn countries through teams of pioneering medical professionals who volunteer their time to treat children and conduct training programmes for the local medical staff.
November 2016, the charity hosted this year’s star studded Gala Ball which raised an incredible £2.5million! Wireless Terminal Solutions supplied fifty PDQ machines to the London venue. Delivering the PDQ machines the day before, WTS provided onsite technical support for the event giving reassurance and peace of mind to the organisers. The charity had two types of PDQ machines; the Wi-Fi PDQ machineswhich were connected via the Grosvenor House secure SSID, and Internet PDQ machines which were connected via an ethernet cable. The PDQ machines were used for charity donations and also for the main auction, which was the highlight of the evening.
WTS technical support arrived on-site at 5pm, and liaised with the charity to ensure the PDQ terminals were all set up for the evening. WTS believe going the extra mile for charities is pivotal to the on-going success of our short term card terminal solution, which is why so many of the UK’s leading charities choose WTS as their preferred supplier of PDQ machines.
Cristy Gresswell, Events Coordinator at Chain of Hope ,who ordered the PDQ terminals for the event, comments on the service received.
“We were delighted with the service provided by Wireless Terminal Solutions and would definitely use them again for future events. Matt was a huge help throughout the process from helping us to decide on the best terminal for our requirements and then attending on the night to ensure a smoothset up of the machines! The terminals were easy to use and very high quality! We would recommend WTS to any organisation in need of great service and great products!”
