Construction industry harnesses the power of the picnic to support homelessness charities and hospices

We regularly interact with our colleagues during the working day, whether that be online or in-person, yet alongside a busy day job, a team get-together can get pushed aside. That’s where Picnic for CRASH came in…

CRASH’s new for 2022 summer fundraiser, Picnic for CRASH encouraged construction teams across the UK to gather outside over some good food, all whilst raising vital donations for our construction projects with homelessness charities and hospices.

Armed with picnic baskets and CRASH bunting, CRASH’s loyal network of Corporate Patrons and supporters rose to the challenge and raised an amazing £2756.94 to construct places that care for people.

From the traditional picnic and gathering in your local park to office market stalls and brewery trips!

“We really enjoyed getting together at our East Leake site for a picnic to raise money for a fantastic cause. As a founding patron of CRASH, we’re proud to help the charity make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people through better buildings.”

“We really enjoyed hosting our very own CRASH Picnic! We have a brewery opposite our HQ in Diss, Ampersand Brew Co, who kindly allowed us to host the picnic. Staff were offered a free burger & drink, and were encouraged to donate what they could to the charity. We’re pleased to have raised £244, and we are looking forward to getting involved in more CRASH fundraisers in the future!”

“What a great idea from CRASH to not only raise funds but get people together. Most lunchtimes we’d be grabbing a sandwich and working through, so this was a real treat.”

Ryan Jones

Managing Director at SLG Agency

“A huge thank you to our wonderful Corporate Patrons and supporters who stepped outside this summer to #picnicforCRASH and fundraise for our vital charity projects. I loved seeing the pictures from your picnics… so, the CRASH team had one too! With the weather not on our side, we opted for an afternoon tea picnic in the office.”
