We are extremely proud to officially announce that Naylor Wintersgill has triumphed at the Raising the Bar awards 2016!
Chairman Alan Wintersgill and Managing Partner Victoria Wainwright were delighted to accept the award as winners of the ‘Community’ category on behalf of all the Naylor Wintersgill team on the 10th November 2016.
The West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce Raising the Bar awards provides a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that is good about business in the region in four key areas: Community, Education, Economy and Environment.
The honorable community category recognises businesses that have played an outstanding role in supporting the region through its commitment to great causes, projects, fundraising and activities to make the local community a better place to live.
Victoria Wainwright said, “The award is well deserved recognition for the efforts of all the Naylor Wintersgill team during 2016 – we couldn’t have done it without them!”
In anticipation of the impressive night of celebrations held at The Met Hotel, Leeds, we were asked to film a short video that would be shown on the evening prior to announcing our category winner . We relished the opportunity to get as many members of our team involved in donning our fundraising t-shirts, wearing props from past events and generally really shouting about the fantastic fundraising challenges and activities we’ve been up to this year.

Chairman Alan Wintersgill said, “As a firm, we are very proud to support and pro-actively contribute to the local community. With strong links to Marie Curie and Bradford based charity, One In A Million for a number of years, we were delighted to make them our chosen charities of 2016.”
From bake-off’s and dress-down days to cycling and walking challenges, 2016 has so far seen some valiant fundraising efforts across the board in support of our 2016 chosen charities. We’ve had some great fun along the way!
