This year’s award, designed by Jane Duncan OBE PPRIBA, ABS President was presented by the Renter Warden, Chris Dyson at the Annual Election Court Lunch, held at Saddlers’ Hall on Tuesday 13th July. ABS were delighted to nominate Eddie Weir PCIAT, ABS Ambassador, as the recipient for all the support he gave throughout the Covid-19 pandemic during 2020.
Eddie’s support enabled ABS to make new connections with industry organisations that resulted in donations toward the ABS Emergency Covid-19 appeal and long term sponsorship of events of over £10,000. As a result of his strong work ethic and dedication to the charity’s cause, in 2017 Eddie was appointed an Ambassador role, committing more of his time to helping people in their time of need. Eddie’s involvement with ABS has been paramount in helping to introduce the charity to a big pool of people who have helped raise awareness of ABS support services and get involved in fundraising activities and events across the UK.
ABS would like to also thank the WCCA for their continued support in our charitable activities and fundraising. During our Foundation of Support campaign, celebrating 170 years’ of ABS, individual members of the WCCA donated over £1,600 to help support the architectural community in times of need. Furthermore, during the election court lunch, the Renter Warden also presented ABS Chief Executive, Rob Ball, with a further donation cheque of £1,000.
