As Farrans approach one year in the Woking office in the South of England, the team continues to forge new relationships in the community, with a local charity delighted to receive the donation from a number of recent fundraisers.
The Farrans team based in the Woking office held an office Christmas Jumper Day and festive party whilst the site management team on the Marjory Kinnon project recently organised a successful Coffee Morning on-site.
The combined £600 was given to local children’s charity, The Teapot Trust, which uses art therapy as a way of helping young people cope with long term medical conditions (pictured).
Elizabeth Burke from Farrans went along to Chelsea & Westminster Hospital to present the cheque.
Annie King, Communications and Engagement Officer at The Teapot Trust, said that the donation would provide more than 3 weeks of professional art therapy to children suffering from chronic illness.
"We could not provide this valued service without help from people such as yourselves so thank you again from all of Team Teapot," Annie said.
Making a Genuine Difference
Farrans Director, Warren Wright, also praised the efforts of both the site teams and office team in making an impact on the local community.
“As we near our one year anniversary in Woking, there are several things which we are keen to deliver in the South England region.
"We want to deliver infrastructure which will improve the lives of those locally but we are also committed to making a genuine impact on the communities in which we work.
"That means getting to know the people, the communities and what matters to them. We were delighted to help out the local charity, the Teapot Trust, which is a very worthy cause”.
Farrans in Woking: One Year On
The office in Woking continues to go from strength to strength, following its official opening in June 2016.
A total of 7 sites are now operational in the Woking region - 1 civil engineering project and 6 building projects, including flagship projects such as the Chichester Free School and Marjory Kinnon SEN school.
The 4,000ft2 office space now has ten permanently-based staff and sees a constant flux of Farrans employees throughout the working week, given that the office is a centrepoint to the 7 sites and located 25 minutes from Central London.
