Staff help support homelessness charity St. Basil’s and children’s charity of rugby, Wooden Spoon
The latest edition of ludlowthompson’s annual awards proved another rounding success. As well as looking forward to the year ahead, they provided a great opportunity to celebrate the standout performers of 2018 and ludlowthompson’s ongoing charitable efforts. One award in particular is especially meaningful for all of us at ludlowthompson as it is named after our late colleague Edmar Vinluan. We wanted a fitting reminder of his high standards and principles and so decided to create this award for the colleague over the last year who really went the extra mile.
Along with working at ludlowthompson, Edmar was a keen rugby player, having played for his county (Kent), local rugby club Blackheath, and Saracens Academy. It was in that spirit that some of the ludlowthompson staff from Apex House attended the Worcester Warriors vs. Wasps rugby game to celebrate the awards and the Apex Extra Mile Award - presented to Property Services Manager Gemma Heaton.
The tickets were organised through St. Basil’s charity who receive a percentage as a donation. St. Basils is a charity designed to end homelessness and has a full range of prevention, accommodation, support and engagement services. They aim to ensure young people develop the skills and have the support needed to move on successfully.
Worcester Warriors won the game which put them through to the semi-finals of the Premiership Rugby Cup. The ludlowthompson team who went to the game also entered the St Basil’s raffle where one of the ludlowthompson team won four tickets for future use at Worcester Sixways Stadium.
In London, one of our Lettings Managers Fabian Akinola was the winner of the Edmar Vinluan award and nominated Woodenspoon as his charity of choice to whom ludlowthompson's charitable giving scheme will make a £250 donation in Ed's name. The charity aims to positively transform the lives of children and young people with a disability through the power of rugby.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman at ludlowthompson, says: “A massive congratulations to all those who won awards at this year’s ceremony – a brilliant way to round off a great performance in 2018.”
“Our commitment to our staff is complemented by their commitment to charitable causes, and it is great to see so many members of ludlowthompson jumping at the opportunity to get involved with our partner charities.”
