Testimony of Support

John Assael, Chairman of Assael Architecture, Trustee of the ABS

"I chose to be a trustee with the Architectural Benevolent Society as I wanted to donate my time to a worthy cause and for me this was the most significant charity for architects. 

I have held the position for over 10 years now in which time I have seen the ABS evolve and become more effective as a charitable organisation. I’ve spent enjoyable and memorable times working alongside the team of trustees and committed staff.

Assael Architecture continues to support the charity as part of our ‘Giving Something Back’ programme. The practice is a corporate supporter of the ABS and also raises funds taking part in a number of charitable events.

It is hugely rewarding to know that we can lend help to those in the architectural profession and their dependents whose lives have been met with tragedy or misfortune. At any time our lives can be turned upside down and this is when the Architects Benevolent Society can step in with financial support and advice to help our colleagues and their families."
