The inaugural Davidsons Homes Charity Awards Dinner was held last month to help raise much needed funds for Leicester Glenfield Hospital’s Cardiology Department. Amber Precast was delighted to attend the event and even more honoured to scoop up the ‘Supplier of the Year’ award. We’ve had a long and successful partnership with Davidsons Homes and look forward to a prosperous future with them.
The idea of the awards was two-fold – firstly to recognise the many staff, contractors, suppliers and consultants in the industry but to also raise donations for the Cardiology Department at Leicester Glenfield Hospital. The inspiration behind the event was drawn from a member of the Davidsons Homes family, Jason Glover, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack last year. He claims the hospital and unwavering efforts of the nurses and doctors there nothing less than saved his life.
A total of £30,000 was raised by attendees on the night, through sponsored tables and a series of raffles and games. Towards the end of the night, it was announced that The David Wilson Foundation would be matching that total and the evening’s donations doubled to £60,000.
On behalf of all the team at Amber Precast, we would like to thank Davidsons Homes for our recognition as ‘Supplier of the Year’ and the opportunity show support to such a fantastic cause.
