Willmott Dixon Annual Charity Dinner Fundraiser

Having had a year off in 2020, Willmott Dixons annual charity dinner was held on 23rd October 2021, to raise vital funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association – a charity who need help more than ever due to the challenges of the pandemic.

They have supported Willmott Dixons Ian Waterland and they fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND – Motor Neurone Disease Association

Willmott Dixons event in 2019 raised over £3000, but only through the continued support from their valued supply chain.

Brendan Maude, Wingate Electrical manager in our Leeds office, kindly donated to the raffle, a day inside his professional race car with a professional coach as a prize.

Wilmott Dixon raised over £4,000 which has been split between three charities:

Tiny Lives
Motor Neurone Disease Association

British Heart Foundation Mud Run

Wingate employees from our London office took part in a mud run to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation, in memory of our colleague Mark Smith who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Darren Borg, London regional director said:

A big thank you to everyone that supported us and donated to the British Heart Foundation , we managed to raise over £2,000.00 for a great cause and in fond memory of our colleague Mark Smith who sadly passed earlier this year.

Marks family came out to support us on the day which helped us round the very tough circuit.

Also thanks to the team on the day it was a great effort by all and getting round in 1h 29m was a fantastic achievement .

HS2 donate new classroom bus to Old Oak Primary School

School children near to HS2’s Old Oak Common site in West London have a new learning space, thanks to several contractors. A revamped bus has been fitted out to create an exciting, vibrant space for them. It’s just been opened by local MP Andy Slaughter.

Costain-Skanska Joint Venture, who are delivering the HS2 Enabling Works programme in London, joined up with their supply chain to overhaul the bus, which was donated by RATP Dev London.

Visually, the bus has been completely revamped with a wrapping which has decorated the bus in a ‘bubble and squeak’ style, designed by the school. Astroturf has been used in part on the floor and walls, adding to the sensory experience of the environment.

Harry Haley, London Contracts Manager, said:

“Wingate are proud to have contributed to this project which will be of great benefit to the school and support the local community.”
