Corporate Patron, 8build fundraises for CRASH at their Supply Chain Golf Day  

CRASH Corporate Patron, 8build hosted their annual Supply Chain Golf Day in aid of CRASH, raising a fantastic £3,600 for our work with homelessness charities and hospices.

It was a wonderful sunny day at Brentwood Golf Club, bringing together the 8build team alongside their Supply Chain for a round of golf, lunch and prizes. 8build used the event to engage and connect with their supply chain, thanking them for their support and celebrating business relationships.

Guests kindly donated prizes to the raffle and silent auction to help raise vital donations for CRASH. A special mention to fellow CRASH Corporate Patron, Dulux who donated the iconic Dulux dog for a lucky winner – unfortunately this one didn’t bark!

“It is a pleasure to be part of the CRASH family and support an incredible charity. A huge thank you to our supply chain partners for their kind donations and generosity, we are over the moon at how much money we raised. Thank you to Francesca, Lucie and Hannah for attending the event and sharing all the inspirational stories of the work you do for homelessness charities and hospices. We look forward to holding more events with you in the future!”

8build’s patronage of CRASH now spans eight years and in that time they have been involved with various fundraising initiatives and donated time and professional expertise to CRASH projects, including leading a project for Richard House Children’s Hospice in 2019.

Donations from the Golf Day ensure that CRASH can continue to construct vital spaces for hospices like Richard House and homelessness charities for years to come. The Richard House project created a much-needed fifth bedroom so that the hospice could increase their Step-Down Care, which is the training families receive so they can confidently care for their child at home. The room also provides increased privacy for families when their child is receiving end of life care.

One great way your company can support CRASH is donating prizes to be used in a raffle, charity draw or auction and we will always credit your support. These prizes generate important donations meaning CRASH can continue its vital work, constructing places that care for people. Does your company have football season tickets or golf memberships that you can put to a good cause?
