(PRWEB UK) 6 May 2015
Leading assurance provider LRQA has raised £700 for the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) Nepal Earthquake appeal. DEC member agencies and their partners are working urgently to provide emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets to those affected. Employees from LRQA’s new headquarters based in Birmingham have collectively raised the money through a raffle, which was organised by Global Marketing Communications Officer, Claire Mawdsley.
Speaking at the prize draw which was held today, David Derrick - LRQA Area Operations Manager for Northern Europe said; “LRQA is part of the Lloyd’s Register Group (LR), whose mission is to enhance the safety of life, property and the environment and to make a difference to society.” Over the years, LR has undergone significant change and has grown to a £1bn turnover service provider with over 9000 employees in 78 countries.
David Derrick continued; “With no shareholders of our own, we are independent and impartial in all that we do, and at our heart sits a charity, the LR Foundation, whose mission is to Add Value to Society; a mission against which we are proud to adhere and which has been demonstrated through the commitment of our employees here in the UK in raising money for such a worthwhile cause.”
