Silver Lining win big at the South Coast Business Awards
Hot on the heels of our victory at the Comms Business Awards, we’ve once again come up trumps with another award! This time we’ve won the Commitment to the Region award at the South Coast Business Awards. We are thrilled to be recognised for our numerous contributions to charity and the local community. Silver Lining were in attendance on Thursday, July 14th at this prestigious event at the Hilton Ageas Bowl, Southampton, hosted by notable comedian Dominic Holland.
Silver Lining have previously been noted for our charitable work with the Community Contribution award at The News Business Excellence Awards earlier this year, however the South Coast awards recognise our efforts on a regional scale.
Examples of our community work include our huge contributions to Southampton General Hospital and the Ocean Ward, providing free TVs and electronics for patients. We have also played a major part in organising the Cystic Fibrosis Autumn Ball, which to date has raised tens of thousands for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Most recently, we have assisted in establishing a brand new charity, The Beau Halo Trust, which aims to provide support to bereaved parents. We have supported Beau Halo with the funding necessary to achieve charity status, as well as a website and social media presence.
On a more local scale, since our office move to the spacious and scenic Granary building in Whiteley, Silver Lining have taken to holding seasonal community events for local families. So far we’ve run our very own Santa’s Grotto and Easter Fete, both of which attracted a large crowds and were very well received. Our next event, a Summer Fete, will be held in the coming weeks and promises to be a great day out for all the family – provided the temperamental British weather is kind to us on the day!
If you’re interested in learning more about our community contributions, as well as our growth as a great place to work, we’ve recently published a case study – Silver Lining in the Community – to our website. In addition, a selection of photos from the South Coast Business Awards can be found on our Facebook page.
This award marks the fourth we’ve won since last year, and our success is showing no signs of slowing down. I hope to be back here in the coming months with another write-up on our next big win!
