15  December 2011 – Engineering consultancy Norman Disney & Young  has established  the NDY Charitable Trust to support needy communities.

“We are currently supporting the work of Disaster Aid Australia and the Skyjuice Foundation and discussions are underway with Engineers Without Borders, “ NDY market director and trust chairman, Dennis O’Brien said.

“Importantly, these charities provide NDY staff with an opportunity to also volunteer their time and expertise.

“In terms of what we’ve looked at initially for suitable charities, we’ve certainly gone to the most basic of needs: food, water and shelter. In the future we will look to extending this to education, “ he said.
