A year ago when she walked into a group environment she would have been reluctant to leave me - a year later she can’t wait to get me out of the door!
Montala and the Royal Warrant Holders Charity support Yellow Submarine in lockdown
Learning disability Oxfordshire charity Yellow Submarine is so grateful for the support of local tech firm Montala and the Royal Warrant Holders Association Charity Fund (RWHC) which enabled them to buy resources to continue to support their members while in lockdown. Montala staff frequently volunteer at Yellow Submarine projects, most recently at Witney in February, just prior to COVID-19. As a Royal Warrant holder, Montala applied to the RWHC for funds to give to charities it supports, and as a result Yellow Submarine have been able to purchase various resources – from gaming hardware and software, to paper and printer ink – to help keep in touch with their community who have mild to moderate learning disabilities and autism. Kate Sankey, Yellow Submarine Co-Director said ‘Thanks to Montala and the Royal Warrant Holders Association Charity Fund we are able to livestream daily activities on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, and to send out activity packs by post, plus send out daily and weekly newsletters to our members. It is great that we can provide this interim support, though of course we also look forward to opening up our activities as soon as possible and welcoming back our wonderful Montala volunteers.’

Montala is a web solutions provider based in Oxfordshire, with a proven track record in delivering flexible, user-focussed and robust Digital Asset Management systems, and is a Royal Warrant holder. The Royal Warrant Holders Charity donates to small charities in which Royal Warrant holding companies or their employees are involved.
