On April 3rd Knight Frank was awarded the ‘Martynka’ – a unique award of the SYNAPSIS Foundation. The statue for the commitment and long cooperation with the Foundation was received by Monika Dębska–Pastakia, Partner and Chairman of the Board and Joseph Borowski, Managing Partner.
‘We have some true friends at Knight Frank, proven throughout many years of cooperation and ones we can count on. We value the fact that Knight Frank supports us not only financially with donations for particular projects. The employees’ involvement in the volunteer programme, unique handmade therapeutic support which we use in our daily work and actions to raise awareness of autism in society are equally important.’ – said Joanna Grochowska, Vice President of the Board of the SYNAPSIS Foundation.
‘Martynki’, awarded by the SYNAPSIS Foundation, symbolize charitable undertakings and great merits for the developments of professional support for people with autism and their families. This year’s award ceremony was held in the building of the National Museum in Warsaw.
‘For another consecutive year we have been supporting the SYNAPSIS Foundation. Through various initiatives such as an employee volunteering programme or illuminating properties in blue in the “Light it up blue” campaign we spread the awareness about people with autism. We consider real aid key and actively support the Foundation also with donations. Receiving the ‘Martynka’ award is a wonderful gesture and a signal for further actions.’ – said Monika Dębska–Pastakia, Partner and Chairman of the Board at Knight Frank in Poland.
The ‘Martynki’ are awarded by the SYNAPSIS Foundation as a special recognition. Among the laureates are i.a. ‘Trojka’ – the Third Programme of the Polish Radio, the actor Bartlomiej Topa or the recently awarded Foundation ‘Warsaw Marathon’.
