As with any organisation that handles sensitive information, we want to make sure we have the very best security in place. NCC Group makes sure that our systems are as safe and secure as it’s possible to be. They’re the absolute best at what they do, and we’re extremely proud to have them on board, doing it for us.
We receive more and more online PayPal donations every year and this is only possible thanks to the superb support their team gives us, especially on the Red Nose Day and Sport Relief Nights of TV. They allow our supporters to donate quickly, easily and - most importantly - securely, without sharing their financial information. Top stuff.
