Churchill has made a £5,000 donation to the British Heart Foundation in memory of Construction Manager Jerry Bond, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Jerry’s family joined members of the Churchill team on 28th September to present the donation at the company’s new development in Rainham, which has fittingly been named Bond Lodge in his memory.
Churchill’s Regional Construction & Commercial Director Mark Bryant said: “Jerry was a much liked and respected member of our team for over 11 years. In memory of Jerry and in recognition of his dedication and hard work over the years he was with us, we’re very proud to have named our new Rainham development Bond Lodge. We’re also delighted to be making this donation to help the family’s chosen charity, the British Heart Foundation, continue its vital work.”
BHF Fundraising Manager Rebecca Honey, who was there to receive the cheque, added: “It was an absolute pleasure to meet Jerry’s family and some of his colleagues. Everyone clearly held him in such high regard, and they all continue to have such wonderful memories of him and the time they spent together. On behalf of the BHF, I’d like to say thank you for the £5,000 donation which is hugely valued and appreciated and will go a long way towards our goal of beating heartbreak forever.”
The donation was made via Churchill’s own registered charity, the Churchill Foundation, which was set up in 2015 to support the local communities where it builds as well as national charities.
