CRASH Newsletter: January 2024

New year, new home! CRASH moves office as hospice offers new in-patient services

1. Yorkshire Hospice meets local community’s needs thanks to CRASH

“We’re incredibly grateful to CRASH and its Corporate Patrons for their generous support of Herriot Hospice@The Lambert. Their expertise and gifts in kind are helping us ensure we open our doors in early 2024.”

Tony Collins, Herriot Hospice Homecare Chief Executive

The new hospice will offer in-patient care for local people, providing choice and control at a time when it can feel like this has been taken away.

2. CRASH moves office and announces changes to Board

January has been a busy month for CRASH – we moved in with Corporate Patron Arcadis at their central London office, bringing us closer to some of you. We also announced changes to our Board of Trustees – a warm welcome to new Chairman John O’Grady, Commercial Director at VolkerFitzpatrick and Deputy Chair Ian Bolster, Business Development Manager at Dalkia UK.

3. Ride with us

RideLondon – Essex 100-mile cycle takes place on Sunday 26th May, and CRASH has 20 charity places to fill. This is a great opportunity to set yourself a solo challenge or sign up as a team, training and fundraising together. You will receive support along the way and a special goody bag as a thank you for cycling in aid of CRASH.

Join us for The BIG March

Get one step ahead and add The BIG March to your 2024 calendar. Join us by walking 10,000 steps every day in March and donate or fundraise by raising sponsorship. Every step and each donation will help to construct places that care for people who are homeless and those who need hospice care.

Thank you to our Christmas champions

Together the industry raised over £79,500 to support our work with homelessness charities and hospices. This generosity will make an incredible difference and help us to construct places that care for people. Not only did companies donate to receive an e-card, but in a separate festive initiative, 10 Corporate Patrons created over 200 washbags filled with essential items for people experiencing homelessness at Christmas.

Corporate Patron of the Month is…

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 products to help charity construction projects in need of their expertise and materials. This enables the charities CRASH is supporting to channel these savings into helping people experiencing homelessness and those with a life-limiting illness.
