The donation came from Ingersoll Rand, which supplies and maintains air compressor units from its Walton Summit outlet.
It tasked its service engineers and members of its service and sales teams
with achieving a zero accident at work rate for 2020, as well as asking them to highlight any areas of especially good and potentially poor safety practice they encountered.

In return for reaching the target, it promised the donation, asking employees to nominate their preferred charities.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation received the most nominations.
UK Services Leader David Salisbury said: “We ran the scheme at our three
UK outlets with Rosemere Cancer Foundation coming out on top for the
Preston area. Involving staff in safety at work schemes is very important to us.
“We decided to introduce the charity element because most of us have a
charity close to our hearts and we felt it would help motivate our teams to stay safe while earning money to donate to their favourite charity, and of course we know how difficult charities, especially local charities, have found fundraising during the pandemic.”
