British Heart Foundation Charity Event

In recognition of our employee Mark Smith who sadly passed away back in May 2021, the London office is taking part in this year’s Nuclear race in Brentwood on 6th November 2021 – https://nuclear-races.co.uk/

Mark Smith was well known and well respected within the Wingate family, his passing was a shock to all and a reminder how precious life is.

He dedicated his life to his family, job and helping others.

You can help us raise money for this great cause by donating directly to my fundraising page – https://www.justgiving.com/MarkSmithWingate.

JustGiving sends your donation straight to British Heart Foundation and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.

Thank you for your support!

Kind regards,

Wingate Electrical (London)
