As the construction industry’s charity, CRASH is entirely supported by the generosity of our Patron Companies and supporting companies.
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 our 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.
Kate Marsh, Senior Partnership Manager at CRASH said:
“CRASH is a unique, practical charity that relies on the construction industry to donate their construction skills, building materials, time and financial support in order for us to create places that care for people when they are at their most vulnerable.
I am deeply moved by the incredible generosity and goodwill of the construction community, who support CRASH in a variety of ways. The fundraising efforts of the industry is outstanding and more vital than ever in these challenging times.
To our Fundraising Champions, Patron Companies and all who support our work, thank you. Together we can continue to help adults and children who are terminally ill and in need of end of life care, and those who are homeless and will be needing even more support at this time.”
