Buildbase’s Commercial Team, joined by Roca Bathrooms, successfully completed a 12 hour sleep out in one of their branch car parks on Thursday 1st August, helping to raise awareness and vital funds for CRASH Charity.
Over 20 members of the team took part, sleeping on a cardboard base and with only sleeping bags to keep the night-chill away.
Buildbase Commercial Director, Lyndon Johnson said:
‘‘It was a sobering experience but I am pleased to say everyone entered in to the spirit of what we were trying to achieve by raising awareness for this worthy cause.’’
Together the team have raised £855 to date, which will enable CRASH to continue to create places that care for people who are homeless or receiving end of life care in a hospice.
CRASH Senior Partnership Manager, Kate Marsh said:
‘‘We’re immensely grateful to the whole of Buildbase’s Commercial Team for helping to raise awareness of our work and for their tremendous fundraising efforts. You sit at the very heart of CRASH – thank you.’’
