CRASH honours British Gypsum in Above and Beyond Awards

Special Recognition Awards were presented to British Gypsum’s Caroline Salmon and Hayley Greszczuk

British Gypsum’s longstanding support and generosity was recognised by CRASH at their Above and Beyond Awards on Thursday 29th September.

The Special Recognition Awards were presented to administration assistant Caroline and sales & pricing analyst Hayley for their support over the past ten years. 

Caroline Salmon, commenting on the Special Recognition Award, stated: “Advising contractors on the correct materials for CRASH projects for the last decade has always been enjoyable, although getting everything to the right place on time has sometimes been a challenge. Being recognised by CRASH is lovely and knowing that what we do contributes to projects which make a real, lasting difference to peoples’ lives makes it even better.”

British Gypsum, as a patron company, also received an award for donations of materials.

CRASH Chief Executive Francesca Roberts addressed those at the awards saying:

“This event is the one time in the year when the CRASH team can publicly thank you our Patrons for all the tremendous work that you do throughout the year. Patron companies underpin every aspect of CRASH.  Over the past two decades, the charity has become an exciting and effective partnership of the corporate world and the charitable world. What CRASH achieves is only possible thanks to you and your efforts to help people when they are most in need.”
