Commercial interiors specialist Planned Office Interiors has received an award for its support of a lifesaving charity.
The Stone-based business received a Community Partnership Award from AEDdonate based in Stone at its annual Charity Ball on Saturday (April 22nd), which was held at the Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House Hotel.
Jamie Richards of AEDdonate, said: “This was our second Charity Ball and each time it gets bigger and better, and this year we welcomed 240 guests and presented four awards during the evening.
“We put Planned Office Interiors forward for the Community Partnership Award in recognition of the support the team has given us in creating our community room, which opened this year, and the business was selected by our trustees.
“The team there are great and right on our doorstep, so I hope this is the start of a strong relationship between our charity and the business.”
AEDdonate based in Stone High Street, supports clubs, groups and organisations with fundraising to buy Automated External Defibrillators (AED) and install these at its premises to help prevent sudden death through cardiac arrest.
Richard Simpson, director of Planned Office Interiors which is celebrating 40 years in business this year, said: “We were delighted to be selected by AEDdonate to receive the Community Partnership Award. It’s a great local charity and its work genuinely saves lives every day.
“We were more than happy to step in and supply office chairs for the community room, which I hope is now helping the charity to spread awareness of sudden death through cardiac arrest.
“Being based in Stone ourselves we will continue to support AEDdonate as our local charity, and I hope other Staffordshire businesses will also come on board so it can go from strength to strength.”
