As the construction industry’s charity, CRASH is entirely supported by the generosity of its Patron Companies and supporting companies, including Rydon.
CRASH is delighted to announce the 2020 cohort of Fundraising Champions; those supporting companies who have undertaken a high-level of fundraising in the 2019-20 financial year in aid of CRASH charity. This is the third year CRASH has run the scheme and is delighted to confirm 17 companies are being awarded this honour in 2020. Together, these 17 collectively raised a phenomenal £111,000 for CRASH.
This financial support will be added to pro-bono professional expertise and building materials, provided by our incredible Patron Companies, and channelled to help homelessness and hospice charities and their building projects.
Over the past 12 months Fundraising Champions thought up a range of creative fundraising ideas. A cycle ride across Europe, obstacle course challenges, running races, bake-sales and a Go-Karting day were just some of the activities that took place, whilst others kindly selected us as their charity of choice at industry awards.
Recognition of the construction industry’s support has never been more pertinent. The current health crisis caused by COVID-19 has greatly impacted the services offered by hospices and homelessness charities, and the many vulnerable people CRASH is here to help. It is only thanks to the generosity, goodwill and support of the whole industry that we can continue to help those most vulnerable in society.
