Renishaw Renishaw’s donation to support UK youth charity
UK – Engineering technologies company Renishaw UK has donated £16,500 to Engineers Without Borders – a UK-based charity that encourages young people to get involved in engineering and to use their skills to address global challenges.
The donation was made in lieu of the usual gift that Renishaw distributes to its employees worldwide to celebrate the company winning a Queen's Award for Enterprise.
In 2015, Renishaw won the award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for the development and manufacture of its resolute family of non-contact, optical position feedback devices. This was the eighteenth Queen’s Award won by the company. This charity runs a youth outreach initiative, aiming to inspire the next generation of globally responsible engineers. Through a series of workshops with primary and secondary school children, Engineers Without Borders encourages young people to explore human development issues and how they can be part of the solutions by becoming engineers.
