LehmanBrown Corporate Social Responsibility
At LehmanBrown, we believe that being a socially responsible organisation is one of our key pillars for success. From organising the British Charity Ball, to other leading other significant fundraising activities and providing Pro – Bono Support in appropriate circumstances, we understand our commitment to the local society in the markets we operate in.
Annually, we select one or two primary causes to support with activities to raise both awareness and funding through activities engaging our staff and when appropriate our clients.
Pro – Bono Support Services
LehmanBrown believes very much in supporting the work of community projects in China and to reinforce this, we are opening up an opportunity for one project per region in Beijing, Shanghai, PRD and Hong Kong for support in 2015.
Should you be interested in this, please contact us for more information. Submission of applications must be made by Chinese New Year 2015, whereby we will invite you to present your requirements.
The British Charity Ball
The British Charity Ball is a significant community event in Beijing, largely organised by the team here at LehmanBrown in our spare time and during office hours as a Pro – Bono activity. It has grown to be the leading community ball event in Beijing, has the support of the business and diplomatic communities and we have been presented with numerous awards commending us for our work on this project.
LehmanBrown has selected the following projects to support in recent years:
The Migrant Children Foundation
The MCF is a non-profit organisation (Registered Charity Number 1154709 MIGRANT CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION. UK) that aims to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children in China through volunteering.
An MCF cornerstone is the life-enhancing Health Checkup Program. This project is run in conjunction with the GlobalCare Hospital and the migrant schools where MCF transports children to the hospital where they receive a full health checkup that is paid for by the MCF and LehmanBrown amongst other sponsors. To date, 310 children have benefited from the extensive health checks and one life was substantially lengthened and enhanced thanks to early detection of heart challenges.
Every year, Little Flower works with 30 – 40 different state run orphanages across China to identify babies in fragile situations, provide needed intensive care, intervene in their life-threatening medical problems and put babies on the path to adoption. The majority of babies in their care have gone on to grow up healthy and happy in a family of their own. LehmanBrown is honoured to work with such a cause and through our St. George’s Charity Dinner fundraiser and The British Charity Ball, have set out to try and support Little Flower however we can.
Roundabout is a social enterprise headed by volunteers. We provide a free service connecting those who wish to give, be that monetary or otherwise, to those in need. Started in 2008, we were the first charity store in mainland China. We now give support to 48 charitable organizations in the Beijing area and many more throughout China, Inner Mongolia and Mongolia.
If you would like to get involved in any activities that we will be running during the coming year or would like to learn more about how you can support our supported charities, please contact us for more information.
