Gatwick Airport supports community awards as headline sponsor
20th November 2019 – Crawley Observer
Gatwick Airport is again supporting the Crawley Community Awards as headline sponsor.
Community engagement manager Melanie Wrightson explains why: More than a third of Gatwick staff call Crawley and Horley home. They help the airport to deliver a world-class passenger experience and do a fantastic job welcoming more than 46 million passengers a year as they fly out to more than 230 destinations in 74 countries.
They are fantastic ambassadors not only for Gatwick, but for Crawley and the wider region. Simply put, without the support of local people, Gatwick would not be the airport it is today.
Some people, however, go above and beyond and selflessly give up their time for the benefit of others. It is important to stop and take a moment to recognise these people as they enrich our community and peoples’ lives.
I’m lucky enough to meet many of the local volunteers and community representatives who do great work across the region, whether they are helping to raise funds or helping those who just need some additional help and support.
I find their selflessness and commitment to help other people inspirational. It is only right that our community heroes receive the recognition they deserve and Gatwick Airport is proud to be able to help by supporting the Crawley Community Awards.
We are also delighted to be working alongside others who took the initiative to honour and recognise our Community heroes, including The Crawley Observer, The Hawth and Crawley Borough Council.
I wish all the nominees the best of luck and look forward to a fantastic awards evening.
