2017 Gordon McLanaghan Award for Security Innovation
The winner this year was Cumbria Constabulary for their work consolidating all six district councils' standalone CCTV systems into one sustainable system that is run and monitored centrally by the constabulary.
Cumbria Constabulary received a stunning piece of Bristol Blue Glass, a £1,000 cheque and some brilliant PR to use in the future!
The 2016 Award went to Gloucester City Council. Their project was to bring free outdoor public WiFi to the city by co-locating WiFi access points with CCTV cameras. The project was supplied, planned and delivered with BT Redcare.
2017 Charity Fundraising
We were delighted raise funds for The Grand Appeal via support of Natalia Spencer and her fundraising initiative Elizabeth's Footprint, in memory of her daughter who died suddenly in 2015. Natalia walked the entire coastline of Great Britain last year and continues fundraising today.
One of Elizabeth's nurses took to the stage to talk to the audience about what a special girl she was and the work the the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit undertake on a daily basis.
We raised a staggering £2,500 on the night with a variety of activities including a hotly-contested auction for Shaun the Sheep and Oscar-winner Nick Parks' doodle and autograph!
