SCS Group was pleased to attend CRASH Charity’s recent annual reception and Above and Beyond Awards where it highlighted the generosity and loyalty of its Patron companies.
The event was attended by Allan Meek, Managing Director of SCS Group, which is itself a Patron of the charity.
The charity assists homeless and hospice charities with construction-related projects and over the past year SCS Group has taken part in a number of activities raising £12,122 for the charity.
As part of this fundraising, SCS Group staff took part in a number of activities including the Paris Marathon, Ride London and the Windsor Half Marathon.
Big names unite
The reception and awards event, on July 20, was hosted by Building, Barbour ABI and BD Online at UBM’s Head Office, and brought together an illustrious gallery of big names from the construction and property industry who have all given their valuable time and resources to support the charity.
The charity’s Deputy Chairman Tony Giddings welcomed guests and spoke about some of the remarkable achievements during the past year.
CRASH Chief Executive Francesca Roberts then addressed the reception saying: “This event is the one time in the year when the CRASH team can publicly thank you our Patrons for all the tremendous work that you do throughout the year.
“Patron companies underpin every aspect of CRASH, and over the past 21 years, the charity has become an exciting and effective partnership of the corporate and the charitable sectors.
“What CRASH achieves is only possible thanks to you and your efforts to help people when they are most in need.”
CRASH Above and Beyond Awards
Patron companies Imtech, BAM Construct UK and Taylor received recognition for their 15-year commitment to the charity and Arcadis for their 10-year commitment. Patrons Arcadis, Bauder and Imtech received awards for their outstanding contributions of professional expertise, materials and fundraising respectively.
Allan Meek said: “The work CRASH does makes a real, tangible difference to people’s lives – the kind of difference you can reach out and touch with your hand. We specialise in making buildings safer and more efficient so it makes perfect sense for us to lend our expertise to the projects with which CRASH is involved.”
