Two Andover names were centre stage at Westminster at the annual Home Improvement Agency Awards.
Sir George is Chairman of a Charity - the Foundations Independent Living Trust - which makes awards to people who cannot afford life-saving adaptations to their homes. In that capacity, he was asked to host the Annual Award Ceremony, at which the work of Home Improvement Agencies is recognised. Home Improvement Agencies give advice to elderly or disabled owner occupiers on low incomes who find it difficult to stay in their homes, and need access to grants and contractors to improve their quality of life.
Patrick Stannah, of Stannah Lifts, had helped to sponsor the event, as well as sponsoring one of the awards.
"Stannah are market leaders in stair lifts, and major employers in Andover. I was pleased to hear from Patrick that they continue to expand steadily."
