Mercy Ships is a global charity, which has operated a fleet of hospital ships and land-based programmes in developing nations since 1978, bringing medical aid and the hope of long term sustainable development to some of the world’s poorest regions.
Mercy Ships is one of our chosen charities. We donated a number of vehicle extinguishers and a number of telescopic ladders to Mercy Ships in 2008, these items were requested to be fitted to a fleet of Landrovers in Liberia. This donation was greatly received.
Today we will be posting a cheque for £114.00 raised through staff contributions. Thank you to all who have contributed to this sum. We will continue to give our support to Mercy Ships and other local charities.

Safelincs provide fire extinguisher servicing for the St Clements Church, Eastcheap, London. This church considers itself to be the church referred to in the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’. The rhyme begins with this church because when the Thames was wider than it is today, the wharf where the citrus fruit cargoes from the Mediterranean were delivered lay just across the street. It is said the church bells pealed when a cargo arrived. The earliest record of the rhyme as it is dates to around 1744.
Safelincs is aware that in the current economical times, the purchasing of fire alarm tests records, emergency lighting test logbooks etc, is not at the top of the list. That is why we have made a FREE downloadable log book.
The Logbook includes fire safety advice in fire prevention, fire escape, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting and general fire precautions.
