On 14th October 2018, team members from Donseed UK Ltd will take part in the Birmingham Half Marathon to raise money for The Lighthouse Club.
The Lighthouse Club is the only charity that provides financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families who have suffered an injury or long-term illness or simply need a helping hand. The charity receives no public funding and rely on the generosity of those within in the industry to help us continue our vital work. Last year, the Construction Industry Helpline, which is run by The Lighthouse Club, supported over 1,500 construction families in crisis and over 400 families were granted £735,000 of emergency financial help. Of the 1,500 calls into the helpline, 1,100 of these were given advice and support on issues ranging from stress and depression to legal, debt management and taxation advice.
Dave Ingram, Chief Operating Officer of Donseed, said: “We hope our collaboration with The Lighthouse Club will raise some funds and help to generate further awareness of this great charity and the amazing work they do for the industry. As a company we have an objective to promote the health, safety and wellbeing of workers within the construction industry and are delighted to support The Lighthouse Club.”
