Yorkshire tech experts take fundraising up a gear
A West Yorkshire technology business has donated thousands of pounds to a European cycle ride raising funds for a children’s charity.
Oriium, based in Wetherby, was the main sponsor for the start and finish of the CommVault London to Paris Charity Cycle which took place from July 22nd- 26th. Around £50,000 has been raised so far with Oriium contributing around 10% of the total.
Workers from as far afield as Dubai, Germany and the USA joined their colleagues from CommVault’s UK office to raise money for Action Medical Research which funds medical research to treat a range of childhood diseases.
Oriium, who have worked in partnership with data and information management software company CommVault for many years, provided the 40 cyclists with the necessary helmets and clothing for their challenge.
Oriium is one of the UK’s fastest-growing technology companies, providing data management and infrastructure consultancy services, and has been ranked as one of Deloitte UK’s top 50 fast-growing technology businesses for the last two years.
Established in 2007 by Chris Kiaie, Oriium’s company ethos and business strategy has resulted in year-on-year growth.
Chris Kiaie said: “We’ve worked with CommVault for a number of years and really admire their charitable aims. They have all dedicated so much time to both the fundraising and training to complete this phenomenal 261-mile cycle ride that we felt compelled to help them out with their kit and donations as it is such an important cause.”
Oriium currently employs a team of 35, initially launching with just two founding members of staff, and re-located to larger premises at Gemini Grange on Sandbeck Way in Wetherby at the end of last year.
