Johnstone’s Community Spirit Award
The award was launched to coincide with the brand’s 125th anniversary this year and is designed to recognise decorating contractors’ positive impact on the communities in which they operate.
Bell Group saw off competition from Bagnalls, Novus Property Solutions, Ian Williams and R&M Williams – who were all highly commended.
During 2014, Bell Group held 27 events in schools and community centres focused on developing the skills of young people in terms of employment and professional development, as well as using 100% local labour on 82% of projects completed.
Tracy Brescia, national quality manager for Bell Group UK, said: “We are extremely proud to be the first recipients of the Johnstone’s Community Spirit Award. Being a family owned and operated business, supporting the communities where we work is very much a part of our core values and company culture. We take a great pride in ensuring the communities in which we operate feel a lasting positive benefit from our activities and receiving national recognition for our community work is the icing on the cake.”
