Following a company-wide poll, we are delighted to announce our new charity partner.  

We will be supporting Hope Against Cancer which is a small charity close to our head office in Leicestershire and close to hearts. 

We look forward to working with Trace Voss (pictured here with Dan Danaher) and the team to help make a difference. 

Hope Against Cancer, currently celebrating their 20th year, is Leicestershire and Rutland’s local cancer research charity. The organisation is dedicated to funding cutting-edge research within the region and making clinical trials accessible to the local population. 

Their ultimate aim is to create a future where more individuals can overcome cancer. This is achieved through the support of innovative research that leads to enhanced treatments and improved outcomes for the community. 

Hope Against Cancer works in collaboration with local universities and hospitals to establish Leicestershire as a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment. Since its establishment in 2003, the charity has provided funding for over 60 research projects addressing a wide range of cancer types.

Danaher & Walsh (Civil Engineering) Ltd has been awarded a £10 million plus contract with Galliford Try –the biggest single order the company has ever received.  This reflects the growth of Danaher & Walsh and the strength and skill of our in-house delivery teams.

The project is ultimately for Leicestershire County Council to build the new North and East Melton Mowbray Distributor Road. The £115m scheme is funded by Leicestershire County Council, the UK government, and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership.

The project provides a new corridor for the A606 around the north and east of Melton Mowbray, by building a new distributor road which reduces congestion in the town centre, accelerates housing delivery, and supports local economic growth.

Danaher & Walsh will be delivering civils packages across the scheme. The Project Team is in place headed up by Contract Manager Mark Hedges and Commercial Manager Scot Jerram.

Danaher & Walsh are due to start on site next week, 17 July 2023, and expect our element of the project to take two years to complete.

“Danaher & Walsh are delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working collaboratively with Galliford Try and Leicestershire County Council to deliver a distributor road around Melton Mowbray and therefore a more pleasant environment in the town centre for the community to enjoy. Along with Galliford Try we will be working with key stakeholders within the community to ensure minimum disruption and maximum benefit to local people, as a result of the works.”Sean McCallion, Operations Director, Danaher & Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd.
