BiTC Team of the Year Award

Representatives from Lucite International’s (LI) Cassel site in North East England have received BiTC’s (Business in the Community) regional Team of the Year Award for the third year running. The award was given in recognition for the charity work the team has carried out to help children, young people and families who are involved with the Barnardos Bridgeway Project. Team leader, Matthew Bullivant (centre right), and Dave Finch, team member (centre left), accepted the Award from Karen Wilkinson-Bell, BiTC Regional Director, and Nicholas Owen, TV presenter, at a ceremony on 25 June 2012.

The team challenge involved improvement works to the Bridgeway Project Centre to make it a more pleasant space for those who use it. A spokesperson from Bridgeway said “The enthusiasm, professionalism and skills that all the LI volunteers showed in renovating and equipping the garden has been a pleasure to watch. Without this donation of time and energy Bridgeway would have struggled to make this happen. This donation has given Bridgeway the opportunity to provide an additional outside space for families and young people to enjoy, and we are very grateful.”
