An Andover club has won a national award from the UK’s largest operator of premium late-night bars and clubs for its charity fundraising.
Cameo and Vinyl in London Street raised £3261 for the Echo Trust, the biggest sum for its size from any of the Deltic Group’s 58 venues. The money was collected through Give a Kid a Quid campaigns on four bank holiday weekends in the last financial year.
In recognition of the achievement the club received the Echo Trust Award from Deltic chief executive Peter Marks at the company’s annual awards ceremony held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire.
General manager Howard Cooper said: “It’s great to gain the award and we’d like to thank our customers for their generous support.”
Earlier this year the club nominated the special care baby unit at Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester to receive a £3,400 donation from the Echo Trust.
The Deltic Group set up the Echo Trust to help good causes in its local communities. Since it was established in 2002 the Trust has raised more than £2.5 million.
