Whitehouse Construction Raises Money for Defence and National Rehabiltation Centre


A construction company based in Ashbourne has successfully raised £6,700 for the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre, or the DNRC. Whitehouse Construction has been supporting the Armed Forces Community for a number of years and because of this took the decision to raise funding at their recent 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner. At the event, the construction company encouraged everyone in attendance to make whatever donation they could to the cause.

The construction company is located on Blenheim Road in Ashbourne and received a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award last year. Whitehouse Construction has also signed the Armed Forces covenant, which pledges to support the members of the workforce that are either veterans or service reservists.

The DNRC is based at Stratford on Sour, close to Loughborough. This Centre is a clinical rehabilitation facility for the Armed Forces as well as members of the public. The DNRC is an initiative that was first set up by the Duke of Westminster in order to deliver 21st century rehabilitation services.

Whitehouse Construction wanted to raise money for the rehabilitation centre following the awarding of their Silver Award for employing a range of ex-Service personnel as well as signing the Armed Forces Covenant. There are a number of similarities between the Forces and the construction industry therefore the company felt that it was important to support the DNRC and in doing so, the Armed Forces. Whitehouse Construction is focused on leading the way on the civil engineering sector, and the DNRC at Stamford Hall are delivering a range of cutting edge rehabilitation treatments both in the UK and around the world.

It is great to see a company like Whitehouse Construction going above and beyond in their commitment to supporting the Armed Forces, and exceeding what they pledged in the Armed Forces Covenant. The large sum of money that has been raised by the company will be invested into the development of a new rehabilitation centre.
