Structural defects insurance providers CRL has donated £500 to the charity Age UK.
The £500 cheque was presented to Daniel Stewart from Age UK’s fundraising team at CRL’s head office in Lombard Street, London.
The choice to donate to Age UK was decided in a draw that took place at Christmas as part of CRL’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Employees at CRL were asked to select a charity of their choice that £500 would be donated to and the recipient was selected at random.
It was CRL’s digital marketing strategist Lauryn Yuen who nominated Age UK in the charity draw.
Lauryn said: “My decision to donate to Age UK followed on from John Lewis’s most recent Christmas advertising campaign.
“The issue of elderly people being left alone during festivals, and in particular Christmas, really seemed to be apparent this year and I wanted to make a contribution to the hard work that Age UK does.
“I am delighted that my charity was selected and CRL’s donation will go some way in helping support the elderly.
“I am at the same time really proud to work for CRL – an organisation that has really committed to charitable giving.”
Age UK is the country's largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. It provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people as the over-60s is the fastest growing group in society.
Daniel Stewart, from Age UK’s fundraising team, said: “Thank you to the CRL team for the generous donation of £500.
