Massive support from outgoing MD and staff all set to continue under new managing director
As OEM Automatic was wishing managing director Richard Armstrong a happy retirement recently, the company also looked back on the support he and the staff at OEM has given to local charity LOROS over the last three years.
The aim of Leicester-based LOROS is to enhance the quality of life of adult patients with cancer, progressive neurological conditions and end-stage organ failure for whom curative treatment is no longer possible.
Armstrong’s support for LOROS started in 2018 where he decided that this would be the charity the company would support. Since then, more than £20,000 for the local hospice by OEM.
“The staff at OEM Automatic have taken pride supporting the fantastic charity and have been involved in half marathons, twilight walks, Christmas jumper days and bag packing volunteering to name a few fundraising activities,” it states. Just this February, OEM staff members Chris & George completed the Silverstone half marathon and raised £586.10 for LOROS.” The company has also supported LOROS with the sponsorship of a rocket in the 2021 Rocket Round Leicester event and gives regular cash donations.
“Most people living in the Leicester area have at least heard of LOROS or have unfortunately had reason to use their services,” adds OEM Automatic. “They really are a tremendous organisation and rely heavily on fundraising and donations to keep open. That’s why we are happy and proud to be associated with them and wish them all the best for the future.”
New managing director Peter Evans is keen to maintain the support for LOROS Hospice, and will carry on with the regular donations and supporting the staff during fundraising events. “The OEM team is very proud to be supporting such a worthy cause as the LOROS Hospice. We will all continue our efforts in 2022 and consider new ways to increase our contributions to the LOROS Hospice.”
