Gladstone Brookes are the proud recipients of an Appreciation of Effort Award from Warrington Disability Partnership (WDP).
Stu Farley and Gary Watmough received the award on behalf of the company from WDP chairman Dave Thompson MBE DL MBA after being nominated by former Great Britain athlete and WDP ambassador, Adrian Derbyshire.
Says Adrian: “I nominated Gladstone Brookes for an award, not only because of the support given to my Hate Crime campaign, but also because of the work the company and its staff do regarding disability awareness training. They are actively encouraging their staff to volunteer and help in the community.”
Gladstone Brookes general manager Leon Moye said: “We are honoured to receive this award from Warrington Disability Partnership in recognition of the work we have done in recent years.
“As a company we feel very strongly about our duties in respect of social responsibility and how we can benefit the wider community. We are all very privileged to have stable employment at a time when not everybody has this stability – it is therefore our duty to ensure that we do what we can to benefit others less fortunate than us.
“We have a very strong link with Adrian who has supported us in the disability awareness events we have been involved in and we are proud to be the main sponsor of his Stop Hate campaign for which he has been touring the country speaking to more than 25,000 children. Thanks for the nomination, Adrian, and we look forward to continuing our association in the coming year.”
