Lord holds a torch for Safe!

Lord holds a torch for Safe!

July 2012

Olympic torch bearer Kate Lord completed her relay through Chesterfield recently to a crowd of an estimated 20,000 people.

From countless applicants, Kate, 19, was chosen as she has a real passion for local sport. She was picked at an early age for the Derbyshire swimming team, however due to illness at 13 years of age she had to stop competing. Now sport is still her passion, she teaches swimming and has been recognised in athletics at county and cross-county levels. In late summer of this year Kate will be travelling to Uganda with her university fellows to teach sports to orphans in the area.

As the daughter of Andy Lord, Professional Services Director for Safe’s Derby Office, Kate gave staff at Safe’s largest three offices in Leicester, Nottingham and Derby a treat with a tour of the torch. Kate came along to each office and joined staff in full Olympic torchbearer tracksuit sporting her gold 2012 Olympic logo embossed torch, holding it aloft for photos.

Safe have six offices within the UK and around 200 staff. Longevity of Safe success dates back to the 1970s. With software and service solutions Safe operate in a B2B space supplying primarily payroll and accounting software and services. With niche products and all industry encompassing flexible modular software solutions, Safe has secured around half the top 50 UK recruiters as clients. 

MD for Safe Sandy Scott commented, ‘this has been a great morale boost for our staff, a once in a lifetime opportunity, we’re honoured to have a genuine Olympic torchbearer as part of the Safe family’.
