Hundreds of pounds have been raised at our Foundations Live event for a construction charity supporting workers and their families.
The event saw hundreds of industry professionals and school pupils visit Bishop Burton College, with over 70 companies exhibiting products and services.
Alongside the exhibitors we also invited the Yorkshire branch of the Lighthouse Club along, to raise money and awareness of its great work.
The construction industry charity provides a confidential 24/7 helpline available to the industry’s workforce and their families in the UK and Ireland. It also supports education and training initiatives within the industry.
A donation we made, along with a raffle, raised a total of £311.
Dave Blades, Director at Hobson & Porter, said: “We’re delighted to have supported the Lighthouse Club and to have helped raise awareness and some money for the amazing work they do.
“Here at Hobson & Porter the safety of our staff is paramount. The construction industry is like one big family so it is important we all play our role in making sure construction employees and their families have all the support in place to keep them both physically and mentally safe.
“We hope this will only be the start of our work with the Lighthouse Club and we’ll be looking to provide more support to it in the future.”
The charity has praised everyone who came along and the money raised.
