In the 19 days since the Haiti earthquake struck, Informa staff around the world have engaged minds and hearts and dug deep into their pockets to raise £26,725 for the disaster relief in Haiti. Peter Rigby has announced that Informa will be contributing an additional £20,000 from corporate funds in honour of employees’ caring response, taking the total up to £46,725.
Informa's offices have been involved in a variety of raising and giving strategies including:
Keith Brownlie, Informa’s HR and CR Director, said "Informa's people have jumped to help the people Haiti, as so many others have throughout the world. When we initially told our employees we would match their donations up to £10,000, there was a record number of people donating online and by phone, raising thousands in a matter of 24 hours. We have therefore now doubled our match funding in aid of the Red Cross' efforts to assist the injured and provide relief supplies for those in need."
