Portakabin volunteers triumph at York Cares award ceremony


Four groups of Portakabin employees were fortunate enough to be nominated and attended the special event held at Aviva Headquarters on Wellington Row.

More than 100 volunteers and supporters from 27 businesses, York’s two universities and local community organisations, attended the event.

Four groups represented Portakabin on the night, with three of them taking home an accolade.

Winners included Tom Crosby, Will Harrison and Adam Douse for leading an Inspiring Minds Construction Module at Clifton Green Primary School. They educated and inspired pupils on the practical applications of science and maths and gave them an unforgettable real-life experience by taking them behind the scenes in a market-leading manufacturing facility at Portakabin HQ in Huntington.

John Hattam from Clifton Green Primary School expressed the ‘real privilege’ felt for the volunteers’ contribution and the importance of the time spent with the children.

Helen Rodgers and Clare Thompson also received an award for their participation in the Right to Read programme at Yearsley Grove and Earswick Primary Schools.

Mick Stone, Louise Gregory and Mike Walter were recognised for their part in the refurbishment of The Glen. As part of the York Cares Big Community Challenge, 25 Portakabin volunteers renovated and redecorated the interior of the Glen respite centre which offers short breaks for children with disabilities.

Amanda Stainton, HR Director for Portakabin was delighted to see the local community benefitting from the businesses’ dedicated group of volunteers, “It’s great to see our people being recognised for their voluntary work. Working with local schools and charities helps us deliver something back into the community we’re part of. It’s a fantastic honour for all involved.”
