Quarter of a million raised at Lighthouse Construction Industry’s Charity lunch

Once again it was a capacity crowd at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel in London on Friday 6th December on what turned out to be a record-breaking event for the Charity. A monumental quarter of a million pounds was raised through table sales, live and silent auctions, heads and tails, a raffle and event sponsorship.

Guests were welcomed in by live music from 1852 whose band members all work for Willmott Dixon Interiors. They were awarded best fundraisers at this year’s Construction Rocks battle of the band’s event and they certainly got the day off to a lively start.

All of the money will directly benefit construction families in crisis and help the charity to provide even more support to the construction industry, including mental health training, development of their helpline app and an increased portfolio of charitable services available through their 24/7 construction industry helpline.

The money raised will go towards continuing our vital helpline services and developing our Building Mental Health programme so that we can continue to support our construction families in need and make a real difference to people who have nowhere else to turn.”

Event sponsors and supporters: DRS Bonds, RIFT, Gallagher Group, EEBS, Coinford, Wonderland Memorabilia, Ardent Tide, GKR Scaffolding and CPA
