Thank you to everyone who donated to our charity partners for 2017/18, Dreamflight; we raised an amazing £2,688.88.

Dreamflight could not take place without the generosity of their fundraisers. £2,688.88 could pay for 19 children to swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove.

We’re delighted to announce our 2018/2019 charity partner is The Daisy Garland. The T&A team will be undertaking various activities throughout the year to support The Daisy Garland as much as possible.

The Daisy Garland was set up in 2004 and is a family-run, national, UK registered charity. Their aim is to offer help and support, in whatever way they can, to those whose lives are touched by drug resistant epilepsy.

They fund an increasing number of Ketogenic Dietitians in NHS hospitals across the UK and provide help with support equipment for use at home. Over the years they have helped hundreds of families with active support and advice.

Thomas and Adamson are no strangers to hospitality projects, so it was fantastic news when India Buildings Limited announced us as project managers and quantity surveyors for the development of the first ever Virgin Hotel outside of the US.

Brian Donaldson, Partner at Thomas & Adamson, said, “We are delighted to have been selected to work on an iconic project such as the country’s first Virgin Hotel, which has attracted such international interest.
