Croydon Business Excellence Awards
We’ve been shortlisted! So help us take the award home.
We're happy to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for a Croydon Business Excellence Award in the category Contribution to the Community. This award celebrates businesses with a great approach to corporate social responsibility and those who can show they make a real difference to the community.
Our nomination for this award came from Croydon Commitment for supporting their Ways 2 Work programme, which offers workshops to help local residents apply for jobs. Colleagues volunteered to take part in CV workshops, career talks and attended career fairs. They promoted jobs at their Addiscombe Oaks development and gave donations for the Croydon Commitments Christmas food collection.
We've also secured £5,800 for Friends of Dartnell Park. The money will revamp the much-loved local park making it more accessible and welcoming for the local community, with raised flowerbeds, planters, and benches.
A £21,000 grant awarded by the Place Makers fund supported the Croydon Youth Zone, a centre for 8-19 year olds. Some of this money was spent on selling recycling waste wood from our Addiscombe Oaks development, which gave residents employment and training opportunities.
The winner of the Contribution to the Community award will be decided by the public, so help us take the award home by simply casting your vote – you don’t have to enter any personal details.
The voting ends on Friday 9 September.
