)-- Both events form part of LehmanBrown’s commitment to community-enhancing activities and to providing assistance to those in need through the support of recognised charitable organisations.
Russell Brown, Managing Partner, LehmanBrown International Accountants commented:
“It is very important to the company that we participate in community events such as the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce’s Sports Day and the British School of Beijing’s Summer Fayre. Since the company’s founding, LehmanBrown has participated in many community-enhancing events. As a result, we are widely recognised by this dedicated support to charity and to the community both within the community and the company itself.”
Russell Brown further added:
“Employees have an opportunity to personally participate in community events, which they may otherwise not be aware of or have a chance to be involved in. These events genuinely bring people together and are great ways to fundraise. It is also important for professionals, who by nature of their career are in a better position than many less fortunate than themselves, to give back to the community in some way. We at LehmanBrown actively encourage this.”
The BSB Summer Fayre 2010 raised approximately RMB 50 000. Proceeds will go to the British School of Beijing’s two charities, Beijing Zhiguang Special Education and Training School and Yearn to Learn.
In 2010 LehmanBrown International Accountants will be furthering its work through support of the British Charity Ball 2010.
