Andrews Sykes donates to army veteran charity

To start the year off on a positive note, we have continued to nurture our ongoing relationship with the Aaron Lewis Foundation. In late 2022, we pledged to make a Christmas donation of £5,000 and are very proud to support this wonderful initiative.

The Aaron Lewis foundation was set up in 2010 in memory of Aaron Lewis, who was tragically killed at the age of 26 while on an operation in Afghanistan. The charity initially began as a small forum for friends and family raise funds in Aaron’s memory. With unity and teamwork at its core, the charity grew rapidly into the principle funding source for the Commando Gunner Memorial in Plymouth. With funds still being donated after the memorial was completed, it became viable to create an all-volunteer charity which attained charitable status in 2013.

NHS’ new cancer centres require urgent source of heating

Falling winter temperatures are normally the catalyst for the healthcare sector turning to us for their temporary heating requirements – and this year has been no different.

Last week, we were contacted by a client in southwest England who is building a new cancer centre on behalf of the NHS.

To ensure the project could be completed on time, it was imperative that a solution was found to combat the cold weather affecting wet trade drying times.

Within hours of receiving the inquiry, our local expert conducted a site survey. This process allowed us to ascertain that temperatures on the building site would need to be kept above 18 degrees.
