CRASH and volunteers return to The Concrete Society Awards
CRASH newsletter: January 2023 issue
Kickstarting 2023 with a new Corporate Patron!
1. First fire safety workshop for homelessness charities
CRASH collaborated with Corporate Patron AECOM to give homelessness charities across the UK the opportunity to learn from experts in fire safety. Attendee Duncan Lewis, Chief Executive at Emmaus Hertfordshire, said: “This was an interesting and really informative workshop. It was especially helpful to be able to combine advice from the experts with a range of views and experiences from the other charities around the table. We came away with some practical tips for things to change to make our community a safer place, and to keep it that way.”
2. Construction industry brings light to people’s lives
At the end of last year, CRASH asked the industry to ‘help keep the lights on’ for the CRASH Christmas card appeal, and you responded with great generosity, bringing light to people’s lives. There are times when we all need a glimmer of hope and CRASH offers that assurance and help to people in a practical way. By donating to CRASH, companies support year-round help for homelessness charities and hospices with their construction projects.
3. CRASH welcomes Customade Group as a Corporate Patron
“We are excited to join the CRASH cause as a committed Corporate Patron for 2023. During our discussions with the team, we have been able to identify several ways we can support the work of CRASH…Customade Group can offer a ready supply of standard products and systems, or work with the CRASH team to deliver customised solutions.” Rachel Smith, Group Marketing Director, Customade Group
