LOVELL Partnerships has been announced as category sponsors in this year’s Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards.
The developer behind the new Glow Garren development, on the site of the former Signify (formerly Philips) lighting factory in Hamilton, is co-sponsoring the Lanarkshire Community Impact Award, with its sister company, Morgan Sindall Construction.
Lovell staff recently attended an event to meet those vying for the prizes and to present them with their finalist certificates. This year, four community-facing organisations have qualified for the final round of judging, which is now underway.
Climate Action Strathaven, which hosts Strathaven Climate Week, seeks to raise awareness of the reality of climate change in the Strathaven area. Larkhall and District Volunteer Group aims to promote the well-being of the community in South Lanarkshire, using methods such as their community fridge and community fund.
MorphFit Gentle Movement Project, provides inclusive and accessible exercise plans to help promote healthy lifestyles, particularly among the aging population. Motherwell Football Club Community Trust is the charitable body associated with Motherwell Football Club and works to use football, and the loyalty surrounding the Fir Park club, to bring positive change to the local community.
Lovell said it is committed to playing a key role in the Lanarkshire business community and to promoting its success and diversity, in line with the aims of the awards, and sends its most sincere congratulations to all the finalists.
The firm added that the award was chosen for sponsorship as it aligns entirely with Lovell Partnerships guiding principle of leaving a social impact where they work by working with local businesses communities to create jobs and training opportunities.
Recently, Lovell launched the sale of properties at its new Glow Garren site in Hamilton, which comprises 163 new homes, 40 of which are affordable housing for South Lanarkshire Council.
