David Tong Cup
David Tong was a much respected member and Honorary Court Assistant of the Company. He was an Architect by profession and designed not only our Company Badges and Armorial Bearings but also the Loving Cup and Case that is the subject of this award. The Cup is kept in a wooden case that was also designed by David and constructed by PM Michael May.
The David Tong Cup was kindly donated to the Company by David, and is now presented each year by the Worshipful Company of Constructors to a Graduate of London South Bank University (LSBU) who demonstrates the best personal achievement in their final year. The David Tong Cup, one of the most modern of Loving Cup designs and was crafted by the award winning goldsmith John Willmin, who also assisted David with the design.
David was very much a “self-made” man, and he very much wanted this award to be focused on students who had overcome difficulty to achieve their aims.
