Here at Novatech, we are extremely proud of our continued supporting partnerships with local charities and the work we have done throughout 2019 and will continue working closely with a number of local and national charities in 2020.
Ending 2019 on a high note, the staff at Novatech continue to give back to their local community in Portsmouth and its surrounding areas. QA Hospital, gaming equipment
Throughout 2019 we have worked closely with local charity Friends Fighting Cancer, supporting a number of their events during the course of the year. However, our partnership really took to the next level when we decided to collaborate and work with the QA Hospital.
On the 10th December, Christmas came early for the children at QA when three members of our staff visited the Paediatric Oncology Ward in Cosham, where we donated over £6000 worth of gaming equipment.
The Oncology ward where our staff visited provides specialist care for infants right through to young adults up to the age of 16. The department consists of Research Nurses, Consultants, Specialist Nurses, Inpatient and Out-patient staff, all working together to improve patient care and treatment.
Christmas came early for the children on the ward when we donated two of our new Reign Gaming PCs, Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset, PC Monitors, Gaming Chairs and so much more.
Charmaine Budd, Marketing at Novatech commented: “It’s amazing to have been able to donate so much equipment to the Children’s Cancer ward at QA and make a difference amongst the community. We couldn’t have done it without the help of Friends Fighting Cancer and the donations from our suppliers.”
The new Reign PCs we donated have been designed and built following extensive research and feedback provided by Novatech’s existing gaming customer base, including the horsepower to power the latest generation of virtual headsets the Oculus Rift along with more storage, faster boost time as well as faster game loading so the children really could enjoy Christmas despite being in hospital over the festive season.
Ray from Friends Fighting Cancer commented "We were really proud to work with Novatech on this particular project, we were completely astonished and astounded that Novatech sourced and supplied such a large amount of gaming equipment, covering all costs of everything that was donated. To see the look on the Nurses faces at QA was incredible to witness and we look forward to working with Novatech in the future."

Desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) is far from a new concept. In fact, it has roots as far back as the late 1960s when IBM was utilising mainframes to centralise processing. This concept was expanded on with the client-server model in the 1990s before being super-charged by the more powerful servers and fibre-optic broadband connections of the 21st century.
