Industry Awards go from strength to strength just weeks after launch.
The organisers of this year's Highways Heroes awards are delighted to welcome a tranche of new sponsors to this year's ceremony, make the total number of table sponsors 21 with over six months to go to the event.
New sponsors added to the event this week include recruitment Specialists Carrington West, AE Yates, ARCO, Highway Care, Carnell and Solar Gates UK.
They join principal sponsors Galliford Try, Virtus TM, Balfour Beatty and many others added to the growing list of those committed to the event.
Speaking about the decision to sponsor the Highways Heroes, Blayne Cahill, Highways Director, at Carrington West said,
"“We are excited and honoured to be involved with this year’s Highways Heroes awards. We work in the sector everyday and often hear some of the amazing stories of people that have gone above and beyond their day to day duties to keep the nation’s highways safe and on the move. It’s amazing that there is now a way to recognise these endeavours. How could we not be involved?!”
The Highways Heroes Awards come after a time of unprecedented change not only in our industry, but as part of our everyday lives. Safer Highways believes this is the ideal time to celebrate the hard work and success of our workers, who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise the heroic actions of them which, until now, has gone unnoticed.
Taking place in at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, the awards will recognise those who have gone above and beyond their duty, to help someone or improve a situation, either in the communities they work in or to unconditionally support fellow workers in their team.
Whether its saving someone from danger or risk of injury, helping a member of the public to safety, or supporting a team member in the face of abuse, you or a member of your team could be named a Highways Hero as part of this new and unique awards.
The Highways Heroes will be judged by their peers, led by Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways and David Lowery, Chairman of the organisation.
Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways, added: “I am absolutely delighted with the way that industry has responded to our Highways Heroes Awards. This is something the highways sector has very much taken to heart, and this has been reflected in both the number and calibre of sponsors we are announcing in this second wave and those we have yet to announce. At a time when our industry has faced enormous challenges yet continued to deliver in times of adversity, it is vital that we recognise our people we put to work are the most important thing.”
"Every one of our sponsors truly buy into that sentiment and for that we are truly grateful."
