We help!

Small Things, big effect! Today we delivered 1.000 of our F&L bags to Hamburger Tafel e.V. - this will help delivering food packages to those in need. ("Die Tafeln" is a non-profit foodbank, a charitable organization that distributes food to those who have difficulty purchasing enough to avoid hunger) The societies Hamburger Tafel e.V., „AKTIVOLI“ Landesnetzwerk Hamburg e.V. and „DER HAFEN HILFT“ are bundeling their powers so no one is left behind in this situation. Even in small things lies the power to help! Solidarity shows itself in a crisis.

Company Christmas Party

As the name already suggests: shortly before christmas the company management invites all FREY&LAU employees to a great evening. For one night everyone changes his and her workwear, jeans and sneakers to noble twine, polished shoes and glittering wardrobe. Dressed up to the nines one savoures a 5 course menue,  enjoyes a great view over the Hamburg harbour, has a nice chat with the colleagues and shakes a leg. A merited reward after an intensive year full of commitment, hard work and creativity!
