Scamp the office mascot has started his own Instagram account so he can now share his fun adventures with the world.
Since we rescued him from a bin in Crete he has definitely been enjoying himself and making us laugh on a daily basis.
His partner in crime, Lulu has taken him under her wing, and between the two of them the crazyness is endless!!
If you love doggies as much as we love them and like to have a giggle, then follow Mr Scamp on Instagram, he goes by the username 'Greekscamp'.

We are very excited to announce that Whitman Building Services are relocating to a fab new office in Sandhurst, this year!
The business has grown exceptionally over the past 3 years so it only makes sense that we get a bigger space to spread our wings.
The new office is currently undergoing a bit of a face lift before we move in, but as soon as we are settled all new contact details and pics will be up on the website for all to see.
A family summer holiday in Corfu led us to find our newest member and recruit, 'Scamp'!
Although the circumstances in which he was found were not ideal (poor chap), he did bounce back after a trip to the local vets.
As our final days were approaching and the holiday was near its end, we decided that it was going to be impossible to leave him behind. So after one hefty bill, a puppy passport, and 2 months of care , he has arrived at his new home in Blackwater and couldnt be happier!
Keep a look out for updates on the cheeky chap...
This year Whitman Building Services attended the AMAR's Masquerade Gala Dinner as a supporting donator. This was the second year running that we have attended the gala and as per last year it was another huge success.
In 2014 we donated a nurses salary for 1 year, and this year we donated an off-roading experience which was auctioned off on the night.
"Baroness Nicholson spoke at the beginning of the event and welcomed Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, one of the 12 Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, who surprised everyone by presenting Baroness Nicholson with a donation of half a million dollars – an extremely generous contribution to our ongoing work in Iraq! Following this stunning news, a luxurious three-course dinner was served and entertainment provided by operatic singers from The Peace & Prosperity Trust, Zeina Barhoum and Bassem Alkhouri. Dr Ali Nasser Muthanna, AMAR’s Regional Manager, took the stage and gave us all an insight into the realities on the ground in Iraq, and reminded the audience about what we were raising money for.
The evening ended with an exciting auction presented by Charlie Thomas of Bonhams, but not before actor and comedian, Omid Djalili, made the audience roar with laughter. The event was a great success and raised just over £34,000 for AMAR’s work with displaced people throughout Iraq, providing a range of emergency services such as healthcare, training and food boxes."
WBS has been awarded an accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
The accreditation demonstrates our health and safety competence to all of our new and existing clients.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management among UK contractors.
WBS were honoured to attend & support the AMAR Gala Dinner 2014.
London’s Savoy Hotel echoed to the sound of tapping feet and 1920’s music and song at the glittering event.
The event raised more than £70,000 from ticket sales, a “roulette” game and raffle, prizes for which included a fabulous Omega watch and a limited edition Sheaffer pen, and auction which included a holiday for 12 in a luxurious villa in the Canary Islands and a Day with The Blades.
WBS proudly sponsored a charity worker for a year, helping the foundation to continue to aid the countless communities they support so brilliantly.
Before the festivities began, the Executive Chairman, Baroness Nicholson welcomed guests with a speech explaining AMAR’s work. She said the charitable foundation now ensured more than 213,000 people in Iraq were seen by a qualified doctor. Its medical staff – all local people themselves – deliver almost over 52,000 vaccinations. Many thousands for whom medical treatment is too far away from their homes were helped by AMAR’s mobile clinics, added Baroness Nicholson.
“In education, we supplement primary and secondary schools with programmes in health, human rights and the rule of law, and democracy – all vital for a growing democratic society. We offer adult development programmes which provide leadership training, adult literacy, and vocational courses in IT, English Language, and business skills.” The Baroness continued: “We deliver regular education and training to tens of thousands of Iraqis in their communities, including children, students, prisoners, prison guards, widows, and female heads of household.”
“Our clinics and education programmes form an anchor for communities that have few resources. We believe the assurance that comes from having dependable healthcare and good schools for children and adult learners creates a more optimistic and less conflict-prone atmosphere at the heart of a community.”
Baroness Nicholson also talked about AMAR’s unique gender-based violence programme which had proved to be “hugely successful.” She said the charity’s work had been analysed and sponsored by experts from such august bodies as UNESCO, The World Health Organisation and the World Bank, who had all given it “top marks.”

WBS has further proved it's commitment to health & safety by achieving it's CHAS accreditation.
The CHAS Assessment Scheme is a government run organisation which has been developed over quite a number of years by local government health & safety professionals, with the support of the Health and Safety Executive.
With the accreditation now achieved, an annual assessment will ensure we keep within the guidelines of the scheme and continue to improve on our excellent health & safety achievements.
Our corporate off-road & shooting day was a real success!
