Construction industry charity, The Lighthouse Club is calling to firms and employees across the sector to vote for them to benefit from a £20,000 donation pot pledged by Hudson Contract to mark their 20th anniversary.
The Lighthouse Club is one of four charities that is in the running for the donation pot under a generous initiative launched by the construction audit, contract and payroll provider to celebrate its birthday, and to give something back to the industry.
Anyone can cast their vote at www.hudsoncontract.co.uk/choose-your-charity with each charity receiving a percentage of the pot based on the number of votes they get.
The four charities in the running are:
Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) – preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research and supporting affected families.
Royal National Lifeboat Institution – charity funded lifeboat service, dedicated to saving lives at sea.
Children with Cancer UK – national children’s charity funding research, welfare and campaigning projects to help children with all types of cancer.
The Lighthouse Club – construction industry charity dedicated to providing support to workers and their families.
Managing director of Hudson Contract, Ian Anfield said: “What better way to celebrate 20 years in business than by launching a charity initiative that will make a real different to four fantastic causes that are very dear to our hearts.
“With us having worked in the construction industry for 20 years, we wanted to ensure that The Lighthouse Club was included as it provides such invaluable support to workers and their families. Voting takes seconds and we’d urge everyone in the industry to pledge their vote online before Friday 27th May.”
