On 24 April 2022, George Ewen (the son of our Managing Director) took part in the Madrid marathon to raise money for Vauxhall City Farm, an organisation close to WLS’s heart.

The marathon

George completed the stunning 42km route through Madrid’s historic city centre with an impressive time of 03:38:01. Congratulations George! 

George shares what kept him going throughout the marathon:

“The knowledge that WLS and all the other donors had given so generously to Vauxhall City Farm kept me going in the darker moments of the marathon.”

Vauxhall City Farm

Just a stone’s throw from Big Ben, Vauxhall City Farm is one of the oldest and most central urban farms in London. Home to over 100 animals, the farm’s vision is a city where all communities are empowered to connect with nature to enhance their health, well-being, and life chances. They use the setting of their urban farm to provide a wide range of educational, recreational and therapeutic support programmes and activities.

Corporate Responsibility

WLS have been proud sponsors of Vauxhall City Farm for 15 years, installing and maintaining the farm’s fire alarm, CCTV and intruder detection systems. Alison Ewen, the wife of our Managing Director, also has a close bond to the farm. Alison has been a volunteer for over 20 years and is a trustee specialising in Riding for the Disabled activities.   

Jeremy Ewen, Managing Director at WLS Ltd. shares more about our connection with the farm:

“As a company which has enjoyed considerable success installing a great number of electronic security solutions across London, we believe we have a corporate responsibility to give something back to the community. We have welcomed the opportunity to do so by supporting a charity which we have such high regard for, in respect of the support, education and enjoyment it gives to so many people.”
