Peter Casey, Chairman of The Casey Group Ltd, today received the University of Salford Chancellor’s Philanthropy Award 2016.

Peter set up the Peter Casey Scholarship three years ago at the University’s School of the Built Environment with the aim of recognising and supporting excellence in construction. It has so far funded two worthy students, Stuart Hartley and John Kelso, with the third recipient to be announced next week.

Peter was unable to receive the award in person as he is recuperating from an operation, but he did convey his appreciation of the award in a video message.
