VolkerFitzpatrick is the CRASH Corporate Patron of Month for July

CRASH is delighted to announce VolkerFitzpatrick as our Corporate Patron of the Month for July.

This is in recognition of VolkerFitzpatrick’s incredible fundraising efforts at the recent Paul Lane Memorial Golf Day which raised over £23,000 to help people who are homeless, and children and adults receiving hospice care.

VolkerFitzpatrick has been a Corporate Patron of CRASH since 2015, during this time they have organised 6 golf days, football competitions, Christmas fundraising, treasure hunts and more to raise vital funds for CRASH. VolkerFitzpatrick have also led and supported on life-changing charity projects with homelessness charities and hospices.

The team are currently working on a project with a homelessness charity which will see small changes and updates make a huge difference to the people using their services.

“Being named as ‘Corporate Patron of the Month’ is a fantastic achievement for the team. By using our expertise, we have helped to create places that care for people when they are at their most vulnerable. Our annual golf event has grown year after year thanks to the efforts from the VFL team. Many thanks also to everyone who supported the event helping us raise a bumper amount of over £23,000. We would also like to thank the CRASH team for all their support, and for making this a wonderful charity to be part of. More construction companies should look into becoming a Corporate Patron of CRASH, as this truly does add social value where it is most needed.”

Commercial Director at VolkerFitzpatrick and CRASH Trustee

‘’One of the things VolkerFitzpatrick does so brilliantly is unite the whole business in their support of CRASH. From senior management who recently cycled 100 miles to fundraise, to apprentices, and the wider team who have volunteered their time to collect donations at industry events – we are grateful for each of your contributions. Thank you to the whole team at VolkerFitzpatrick for your commitment to constructing places that care for people.’’
