Beale and Company Wear Red for RedRFriday, 18th February 2011
Staff at Beale and Company today joined companies from around the world in wearing red for RedR to show their support for the engineering charity RedR.
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of the City of London also showed their support for the flagship fundraising event by donning red whilst meeting with Beale and Company and other supporters of the charity at a reception at Mansion House.
Speaking from Mansion House this morning, Lord Mayor Michael Bear said: “I am delighted to be wearing my red robes today to help mark RedR’s flagship fundraising event. I am also immensely proud to be able to support RedR as part of my Lord Mayor’s Appeal ‘Bear Necessities – Building Better Lives’. RedR is a charity which does truly inspiring work; training relief workers around the world to ensure response to major disasters – such as earthquakes or floods – is as effective as possible.”
Beale and Company is also raising money for the charity through a firmwide red themed bake-off.
