2018 Community Awards Ball Winner
David is a man who is making a powerful and lasting difference, not just in his local community but also for his colleagues in Sunderland - he has mobilised more than 800 of his colleagues to commit to fundraise or volunteer, inspiring positive change right across the business.
Since taking on the role of Chair of the Community team in 2016, David has encouraged the team to be more proactive and outward looking rather than waiting for requests to come in. We've adopted David’s approach at other sites, challenging community team members to be more active in driving CSR involvement through their teams, and are seeing the benefits of this.
Without doubt, he has raised the standards of fundraising for BGL.
