ROQ employee relations manager, Sarah Jane Riggott, said: “As a company, ROQ has always supported causes close to our team’s hearts. We are delighted to help out at Ronald McDonald House and it is great to see our Community Ambassadors reaching out to such a wonderful charity. The ROQ team always has fun together, taking part in projects like this outside of work.”Lynne Wright, operations manager at Ronald McDonald House, said: “We are delighted that ROQ has chosen us as its charity. The dedication and support it has shown over the past year is remarkable. “As a charity who relies totally on public donations to enable us to provide this excellent service to families who find themselves in this stressful situation, we are very grateful. We would like to thank everyone for their commitment with a special thanks from our families.”
