Garbutt + Elliott Raise the Bar in 2017
The West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce recently announced Garbutt + Elliott have won the ‘Raising the Bar 2017 Awards’ in their ‘Community’ category, which took place on 29th November 2017 in Leeds.
This is the third time we have been nominated for the award and we are extremely honoured to be announced as 2017 Winners!
Throughout the year, Garbutt + Elliott have taken part in a range of fundraising and supporting activities for their chosen 2017 Charity Partners, York Against Cancer and Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal. The G+E team paid a special visit to Leeds Children Hospital in August to see the kind of work they are supporting and the difference it can make.
Nigel Shaw, Partner and head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Garbutt + Elliott said ‘it’s about raising our awareness of what businesses can do collectively to help a wonderful cause like this Appeal – it definitely inspired us & we were made so welcome. It is often a humbling experience when you see how the charities use the funds we raise’
Being shortlisted has allowed us to share ideas and benchmark our progress of good work in the community. We are so proud to receive the recognition for our continuous work and involvement in the community, whether it’s raising money for our local charities, or offering to help schools and community groups in Yorkshire with pro-bono support and assistance.’
