£2000 donation for the Vacant Property Champions!
SAVE Britain's Heritage win Vacant Property award 2012
The 2012 Vacant Property Award, presented by Camelot Property Management, was won this year by SAVE Britain's Heritage and accepted by former secretary, Will Palin.
As the first ever Vacant Property Award presented, it was hard to choose between the short-listed submissions.
Tony Brennan, Camelot Regional Manager of the North, who announced the award, said:
"We know the fantastic work SAVE do campaigning against the demolition of Heritage and historical sites and developing innovative ideas to maintain, utilise and regenerate vacant properties across the UK.
In reference to the work happening at 21 Madryn Street, Tony added: " Since housing Guardians, 21 Madryn Street has had life injected back into it. Not only are we seeing a reduction in vandalism and crime in the direct surrounding area we are also utilising and successfully securing a property that would otherwise vacant".
Will Palin, SAVE Britain's Heritage commented: " We are really proud to have been the first to win the Vacant Property Award; the £2000 donation will really make a difference to a small charity like SAVE and we intend to use it to feed into regeneration causes that are planned for 2013".
This annual award and donation will be presented to companies that illustrate social responsibility and innovation in the management of their vacant property portfolio and aims to encourage best practice across the UK.Back
