CRASH Newsletter: March 2022 issue.

1. CRASH welcomes Glazing Vision Ltd as a Corporate Patron

Glazing Vision Ltd, global pioneers in superlative architectural glass rooflight solutions, has joined CRASH as a Corporate Patron to support our work with homelessness charities and hospices. They will bring quality, innovation, and a wealth of knowledge to help construct places that care for people when they’re at their most vulnerable

“We wanted to be involved in something in which we could use our expertise and we have found that in CRASH. I know that all our staff will embrace our involvement and come up with ingenious initiatives to generate awareness and funds for the worthwhile causes CRASH gets involved with.”

Jon Shooter

Group Managing Director at Glazing Vision

2. You’re invited to take part in The Construction Industry Dragon Boat Challenge, raising vital funds for CRASH with every entry

Will you join us for an afternoon of team-building fun and friendly competition on Thursday 19th May in London? Team places are over halfway to selling out, so secure your team today and you’ll have plenty of time to recruit your team members (and decide on your fancy dress!) later. This popular fundraising event is open to everyone so don’t worry if you haven’t taken part before – that’s even more reason to try something new! 

Every entry fee includes a donation to CRASH charity, so by taking part your company will help to construct places that care for people.

3. When action combines with compassion, lives change

“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.”

Kofi Annan

At CRASH, we are very fortunate to have construction professionals who volunteer their time and expertise, as well as companies who donate their construction products, to help homelessness charities and hospices with vital building projects. We could not do the work we do without your dedication to making a difference.
