Andrews Property Group and its principal shareholder, Andrews Charitable Trust, have received a prestigious award for their work to support young people leaving the care sector. “[establish]” which is the ambitious social housing project launched following Andrews’ 70th anniversary fundraising campaign, unveiled its first house to support vulnerable young people in Bristol just last month and it is the partnership with local charity 1625 Independent People.
The judges were particularly impressed with the inclusive approach that the Andrews’ team took to make this fundraising initiative a success. Not only were all team members across the entire Andrews’ branch network involved in fundraising initiatives ranging from competitive bake-offs through to skydives and marathons, but two members of staff will also be trained by 1625 Independent People to act as volunteer mentors to the young people living in the “[establish]” house.
David Westgate, Chief Executive of Andrews Property Group, said, “The Business Charity Awards recognise the outstanding contributions made by UK businesses to benefit and support good causes. It is, therefore, an honour to be recognised in this way.”
