Our team took on the Brighton 10K, one of the oldest and most prestigious races in the south east.
All members of the mixed ability team completed the course along the iconic Brighton & Hove seaside, with the final runner clocking in at a leisurely 77 minutes.
Thanks to their efforts, we’ve been able to make a donation of £1,160 to BSUH Charity, which will fund health advancements and innovations that will enhance patient care at the Trust’s hospitals in the region.
Steph Kirby, Communications Officer at BSUH Charity, said: “Huge congratulations to all of the team for completing the 10k challenge! Thank you all so much for your brilliant fundraising, it is such a fantastic amount to have raised and it will make a real difference to our patients.”

As Operations Manager, James Howard explains, we’ve been working with University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust on multiple projects that are improving facilities for staff and patients alike.
He said: “Last year we completed the Urgent Treatment Centre at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, which was delivered using modern methods of construction.
“The project was procured via Scape and has created additional clinical treatment space within the hospital’s emergency department. This has increased A&E capacity and greatly improved the care environment for patients receiving urgent care.
“Working with the Trust is hugely rewarding and is helping to reduce the pressures the NHS is under.”
We are currently on site at The Princess Royal Hospital in West Sussex where we are creating a new urology consulting department. A separate project is also being delivered at Royal Alexandra’s Children’s Hospital in Brighton which will see the creation of new paediatric audiology booths. Another project is being delivered for the Trust at Royal Sussex County Hospital for the complete refurbishment of the Acute Floor at the Accident & Emergency Department.
Supporting local and national charities and taking part in fundraising initiatives is important to Willmott Dixon Interiors. Last year we raised over £10,000 in donations to charities that have supported a variety of good causes.
