Belvoir Andover Wins at the 2013 National Belvoir Awards

This will be the second time Belvoir Andover has won an award at these annual ceremonies. Back in 2007 we picked up ‘Most Improved Office’ after doubling the size of the 8 year old business in just 12 months (see story at the foot of this page).

The award this time was in recognition of the outstanding contribution made to the charity efforts of Belvoir as a group who have now raised in excess of £25,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. The award was given by celebrity comedian Ruby Wax and followed a brief speech by Macmillan representative Tanya Taylor who gave an emotional thank you to the whole of Belvoir for reaching this astonishing total amount raised.

Business co owner Greg Greatbatch and Lettings Negotiator Emma Bevan had trained and run the 2012 Bupa 10000 which was the exact same marathon course used in the 2012 Olympics (except they had to run the course 4 times!).

The award ceremony was held this year at the prestigious De Vere Hotel, Belton Woods for a glittering black tie dinner with high profile celebrity guest speaker Ruby Wax. Greg Greatbatch (Director) says ‘We are truly delighted to be recognised in this way. We feel this charity is such a worthy cause which touches the lives of so many. It was our pleasure raising the money and hope to continue these efforts in 2013.
