A call to the industry has gone out from three specialist civils merchants, – Keyline, Civils & Lintels and Jewson Civils Frazer – who have come together to pay tribute to Maddie Durdant-Hollamby, marketing executive at Keyline, whose life was tragically cut short last month.
Gareth Twohey Commercial Director – Civils & Lintels is co-ordinating the call to arms and says: “On the 22nd of September, it is Maddie’s funeral, or as her family would like to refer to it, a day to celebrate her life. To show their respect and admiration for a young talent in construction, Keyline, C&L and Jewson Civils Frazer will be posting a tribute to Maddie across all of their collective social media channels and are encouraging suppliers, customers and colleagues to do the same. The tribute can be downloaded by clicking the image of Maddie below.
“The reason for doing this is two fold, firstly we want the internet to be full of Maddie’s pictures, as she should never be forgotten, and secondly we are wanting to raise as much money as possible for the charity “Construction Youth Trust”, a cause that Maddie championed as part of the young leaders board at the Travis Perkins Group. She had just been appointed to the Travis Perkins plc Youth Board as Project Director of Visibility. So I am hoping we can count on the support of the industry to also post the tribute on their personal and company profiles on Wednesday the 22nd September, and also hope that people will make a small or large donation to the Construction Youth Trust.”
If anyone would like to make a donation to the Trust in Maddie’s memory, it can be done online at via www.turnerandson.co.uk, or direct to Turner & Son, Independent Funeral Directors, City Rd. March PE15 9LS. A substantial amount of money has already been donated and Maddie’s family is hoping that this momentum can be maintained.
