Mace become the first of three gold sponsors for the third annual industry-wide Highways Heroes Awards. The Highways Heroes Awards are proud to announce Mace as the first of its three gold sponsors of this year’s ceremony. Supported by many of the most forward-thinking organisations in the sector, and set up after a time of unprecedented change not only in our industry, but as part of our everyday lives, awards are the first time the supply chain and the client body have come together to recognise the value and importance of those unsung heroes we put to work every day. We believe this is the ideal time to celebrate the hard work and success of our workers, who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise the heroic actions of them which, until now, has gone unnoticed. Whether its saving someone from danger or risk of injury, helping a member of the public to safety, or supporting a team member in the face of abuse the highways heroes’ awards recognise individuals who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise their heroic actions.
Kevin Robinson, founder of the Highways Heroes Awards said: “Last year was an amazing year for Awards where we recognised the unsung heroes from within our sector, many of those people had never had the opportunity to experience an event of this size and scale; making it an incredible evening for not just the winners but also those who were shortlisted. “I am really proud that Mace will be joining Arcadis as one of our leading sponsors of this years event.
Through their National Highways Director, Lizz Robinson they are one of the organisations who truly uphold the beliefs of these awards, proactively driving forward recognition of the unsung heroes in our industry."
As a part of Mace's involvement as Gold sponsor Lizz, will become chair of the Judges and be responsible for deciding on the recipient of the Chair's award.
Taking place at the Grand Connaught Rooms on 30th November, the awards will not only recognise those who have gone above and beyond their duty, but also those that have helped someone or improved a situation, either in the communities they work in or to unconditionally support fellow workers in their team.
Nominations for the awards are now open with submissions to be made via the website www.highwaysheroes.com
