Simplyhealth, one of the most prominent employers in Andover, is sponsoring the Health Award at this year’s Pride of Andover Awards. The Health Award category recognises unsung heroes within the healthcare and emergency services profession who have gone above the remit of their job to help the local community. The finalists for the awards have been chosen and the winners will be announced at a special awards night at The Lights in Andover on 1 October where Esther Rantzen will once again be presenting the show.
Mark Day spokesperson for Simplyhealth comments: “The Pride of Andover Awards does a fantastic job in rewarding those that go the extra mile in our community. The finalists for the Health Awards have all had a positive impact on people’s lives in various ways and we look forward to the awards night where the winner will be announced.”
Solitaire, the independent jewellers in Andover High Street, is a silver category sponsor, and has chosen to support the Heart of Gold Award specifically.
“There are so many individuals of our everyday lives who exceed expectations by supporting those less fortunate and in need of a little care and help. These individuals often don’t even know the significant difference they make to those lives. We are extremely lucky to have these individuals within our community. Solitaire Jewellers are humbled by these ’golden’ individuals and are very privileged to reward the nominated individual with a “Heart of Gold” Award.” said Sarah Rogers from Solitaire.
The main sponsor for the whole event is gold sponsor David Mellor and Sons jewelers. Andover Town Council is a community supporter and last year’s Test Valley Mayor Dorothy Baverstock supported the project with a donation from her Mayor’s Fund.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Simplyhealth and the other companies and organisations which are backing the awards.
“The awards are our chance to show some of the best of our town and it’s great to have some of our best companies supporting it too,” said Barbara Long from the awards’ committee.
Support for the event this year has also come from Belvoir Lettings, 3 Amigos, The Lights, Andover Buffet Services, Phil Evans photography, Andover Framing, Bulpitt Print Ltd, Gallaghers Florists, Travel Kings, Le Creuset, Andover IT and Bull by the Horns, PR and writing agency.
