VolkerFitzpatrick unite their supply chain to raise over £22K for CRASH at their charity golf day

The Paul Lane Memorial Golf Day, organised by VolkerFitzpatrick is an annual event to remember a colleague and raise vital funds for CRASH, leaving a legacy by supporting CRASH’s work with homelessness charities and hospices across the UK. This year, the golf day raised an incredible £22,331 to help people who are homeless and children and adults who need hospice care.

VolkerFitzpatrick has been a Corporate Patron of CRASH for 8 years, sitting at the heart of the charity’s work. As a team, VolkerFitzpatrick regularly fundraise and practically support CRASH projects by volunteering employee’s professional expertise and involving their supply chain to deliver quality construction projects for the lowest possible cost to charities in need of support.

The golf day, held at The Belfry Hotel & Resort, PGA course, was an excellent opportunity to raise vital funds for CRASH construction projects whilst bringing together different areas of the construction industry for a full day of team-bonding, golf, and a good time.

Guests gave so generously, donating to try and ‘Beat the Pro Golfer’, bidding on auction lots and purchasing raffle tickets to be in with the chance of winning fantastic prizes organised by the VolkerFitzpatrick team.

Many companies kindly donated prizes for the raffle and auction, including fellow Corporate Patron’s London Building Control who generously donated their Corporate Hospitality at The Emirates and Imtech, who donated a 4-ball at Foxhills Golf Club. Football fans were in luck as tickets for Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton were up for auction.

It was a fantastic day, showcasing how companies can come together to deliver social impact by raising funds for CRASH at their events. The donations raised will help CRASH to continue supporting people who are homeless and children and adults with a life-limiting illness, by improving the buildings and places they need. CRASH’s work is vital as our involvement allows the homelessness charities and hospices we work with to focus on doing what they do best, helping vulnerable people when they’re most in need.

A big thank you to the VolkerFitzpatrick team and everyone who helped organise, took part and donated, you have played a big part in constructing places that care for people, now and for years to come.
