The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Event
Local MP and Council Leader attend Russell Finex celebrations as they mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
June 1st saw Russell Finex mark the Queen’s Jubilee, celebrating 70 years of the queen’s reign; the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. The event saw 170 people at our headquarters in Feltham, celebrating the occasion with a great selection of food and celebration cakes, fun fair games, and speeches from special guests. The speeches focused on the Queen’s service to the country and Russell Finex’s continued focus on serving their customers and community.
Special guests joined the Russell Finex team including Seema Malhotra MP, Leader of Hounslow Council Cllr. Rajawat, Alan Rides from Hounslow Chamber of Commerce and Aileen McLeish from The Mulberry Centre.
Local MP for Feltham and Heston Seema Malhotra said “Russell Finex is a world class business - a true story of global Britain which has also been recognized in Parliament for its commitment to its workforce and to sustainability. I was very proud to join this event celebrating HM the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and to see Russell Finex’s commitment to responsible business still remains core to its continued success.”
The event also launched the start of our summer fundraising for local cancer support charity, The Mulberry Centre. During the event, staff went head to head playing games including a high striker, coconut shy and speed football cage, raising money for the charity. Managing Director Ray Singh also presented the Mulberry Centre a donation of £2,100 to kick start the ‘21 Challenge’.
With the charity celebrating its 21st anniversary this year, staff were encouraged to create their own personal challenges around the number 21. In total, £2,300 was raised on the day which will be combined with money raised by staff through the challenge 21 later in the year.
Aileen McLeish, Chair of The Mulberry Centre commented “It was a pleasure to be able to share this occasion with Russell Finex. Our partnership with Russell Finex has provided us with essential funds in our aims to expand our team and opportunities to speak to their staff about our services and common signs of cancers to look out for. We thank them for their support!”
Ray Singh, Managing Director of Russell Finex remarked on the event “It was a great occasion to reflect on the service HM the Queen has provided the country.” He continued “At Russell Finex, we pride ourselves in service to our customers and our community. It’s why we’re still supporting 30- and 40-year-old machines for customers, why we’ve donated over £109,000 to good causes since 2014 and why our new partnership with The Mulberry Centre is so important to us as a business.”
This was an excellent event marking the Jubilee and raising money for local charity, The Mulberry Centre. We would like to thank our special guests for attending and congratulate the Queen on her 70 year reign.
