After a fantastic evening at Crewe Hall on Friday 24th November, we are delighted to announce we won Highly Commended for Contribution to the Community in the South Cheshire Chamber Business Awards 2017.
With only four businesses finalised, the award recognises businesses that have made a positive, measurable and outstanding contribution to a local charity or not for profit organisation and was sponsored by South Cheshire College and Cheshire Connect.
During the last six years Aqueduct Marina has been involved in six fundraising projects for charities including Sea Shepherd, Helbsy Golf Club, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Crohn’s and Colitis Disease, The Joshua Tree and most recently, Anne’s Wish at Muscular Dystrophy raising more than £17,000 over all six projects.
Aqueduct Marina has also acted as host for local community events such as the St Luke’s Duck Race and recent Fire Walk, Stand up to Cancer’s Great Celebrity Canoe Challenge, North West Tour of Britain, MacMillan coffee mornings, Canal & River Trust Volunteer group awards and meetings such as The Green Flag Award celebration and SUMBA’s (Shropshire Union Middlewich Branch Adopters) 100th work party.
Aqueduct Marina’s Marketing Manager, Bernie McCrae, said:
‘Aqueduct Marina has always prided itself in establishing connections and supporting the local community whether fundraising for charity or simply putting a poster up on the notice board. We are delighted to have won and look forward to displaying the certificate in our reception’.
