Representatives from ten local charities recently visited Computershare’s office in Derry to receive £3,000 in donations from its staff.

Employees of the company’s Loan Services business raised the sum after paying a donation to take part in several ‘dress down’ days over the last 12 months.

Among the local charities to benefit from the donations are Prehen based Foyle Search and Rescue, and the Culmore based Foyle Hospice.

Altnagelvin Hospital’s Baby Unit has also received a donation along with The Rainbow Rehoming Centre in Eglinton.

The other beneficiaries were Marie Curie Cancer Care, Alzheimer’s Society, NI Children’s Hospice, Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, Macmillan Cancer and Action Mental Health have each received £300 as a result of the staff’s fundraising efforts.

Andrew Jones, chief executive officer at Computershare Loan Services, said: “Our colleagues in Derry undertake a great deal of activity to support good causes, and Computershare Loan Services is very proud of the role we play in the local community.

“These ten charities all play vital roles in the lives of so many people who need support, and I’m delighted we can support them with these donations.”

Stephen Thompson, Chairman of the Northern Ireland Branch of the MND Association, said: “The Northern Ireland Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association relies on the generosity of the people of Northern Ireland to fund this service and is very grateful for the generous support of Computershare.”
