It was a wet cold morning in March but this didn’t stop the staff and family of Prestige & Homeseeker and our friends of Midshires Electrical, who took part in Stanwick Lakes 10K & 5K run. They were determined to raise money in aid of Cransley Hospice and the funds continued to rise after the event hitting above targets!
Prestige & Homeseeker Park and Leisure homes are one of largest local employers, employing more than 450 people over two sites in Kettering and Rushden. Every year they raise money for local charities chosen by their staff. For the second year running they partnered up with their key supplier and friends of Midshires Electrical an Independent Wholesaler in Northants and raised an incredible £6725 for Cransley Hospice between them.
Mark Christian, Finance Director said, “I am thrilled to be running the Stanwick Lake run in aid of Cransley Hospice, and wasn’t expecting a personal best knowing we were raising money for a local charity was the best part of all”.
Cransley Hospice provides free of charge palliative care to patients with complex needs, and supports patients in their chosen place of care at the end of life, whether this is in a hospice or the Patient’s home, they rely on companies like Prestige & Homeseeker and Midshires Electrical to raise £1.3 million each year to continue provide these vital services in the county.

The government announced exciting plans to force councils to produce an up-to-date plan for housing & using a £3bn fund to help smaller building firms challenge major developers, including support for off-site construction, where parts of the building are assembled in the factory. Communities Secretary Sajid Javid MP we challenge you to find better off-site construction than the Park Homes Industry where we deliver homes with the curtains fitted too. We as an industry have been producing off-site construction for over 50 years & are affordable but obtaining planning for new Park Home developments is impossible. I would also like to send you an invitation to our state of the art factory in Northamptonshire where they are manufactured. If you like us believe in off-site construction please share & like our facebook post & hopefully between us Sajid Javid MP will read this message. http://bbc.in/2lnsMua
We are proud to announce our new company logo as part of the ongoing progression of our company’s brand.
After recent investments, it is the perfect time to evaluate our company’s brand and logo to ensure we are in sync with who we are and where we are going. After careful consideration, we wanted to keep continuity so we have chosen the logo that currently represents one of the two strong brands giving us the more modern look and incorporating the two identities under one logo, capturing the company’s future direction.
The task in the upcoming months will be to update all our marketing materials, vans, business cards, etc with the new logo. We realize that changing a logo is a process that can involve many steps and take some time, so we will finalise it gradually.
If you have used the Prestige & Homeseeker logo in any of your marketing materials, please assist us in updating them. We appreciate your kind support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Marketing Manager Samantha.firstname.lastname@example.org
