British Gypsum is Corporate Patron of the Month for January

British Gypsum has been named Corporate Patron of the Month for January, kicking off the new year by supporting two CRASH projects.

Through CRASH, British Gypsum donates product to help charity construction projects in need of their expertise and materials.

This month British Gypsum has been recognised thanks to their invaluable support donating product to St Mary’s Hospice and the upcoming Waltham Forest Night Shelter project.

St Mary’s Hospice are undergoing a refurbishment to create a new patient entrance, exit and waiting area. This week British Gypsum will deliver donations of plasterboard and ancillary equipment to the hospice in Ulverston, Cumbria.

British Gypsum have also agreed to support an upcoming project with London homelessness charity Waltham Forest Night Shelter.

Donating product reduces the cost of the overall project, whilst still ensuring high quality. This enables the charities CRASH is supporting to channel these savings into helping people experiencing homelessness and those with a life-limiting illness.

“British Gypsum is delighted to be recognised by CRASH as “Corporate Patron of the Month” for our contribution to two projects, St Mary’s Hospice and the Waltham Forest Night Shelter both of which are helping people when they are at their most vulnerable. We have been a longstanding partner to the Construction Industry’s charity CRASH, and we are always amazed at the difference Corporate Patrons can make when we come together to help CRASH-led construction projects. We appreciate this recognition, and we are committed to do more to support CRASH’s vital work, by donating product and services to create quality spaces, that make such a difference for people experiencing homelessness and those receiving end of life care from hospices. “
