A&T Win Business Award
Alan & Thomas Insurance Group are celebrating after winning the Community Contribution award at the Blackmore Vale Business Awards 2013.
They were nominated for their work with the Wessex Cancer Trust (WCT), their official charity since January 2012, by WCT Area Manager for Dorset, Karen Rhys.
"Since coming on board with us, Alan & Thomas have shown real commitment and enthusiasm for the work we do with cancer patients across the Wessex region. In 2012 alone, they helped raise more than £7,000, which is supporting the running and upkeep of one of our holiday homes in New Milton."
The sixty strong workforce at Alan & Thomas' offices in Poole and Gillingham have all been involved in fundraising for WCT from taking part in their monthly dress down days, baking cakes, bucket collecting to even producing and selling their own recipe book and learning to dance the salsa!
"To be recognised with this award is something we are all very proud of. Not only have we been able to raise vital funds for the Trust but in some way, we've helped to raise the profile and generate more awareness of the work that this wonderful charity does on a daily basis in our region," said Hayley Baverstock, Alan & Thomas Marketing Manager.
Alan & Thomas, along with ten other category winners from Dorset, were presented with their award at a gala awards evening hosted by the Blackmore Vale Magazine.
