SCS Group has helped to raise £75,000 for CRASH charity by taking part in its No Christmas Card Appeal 2016

SCS Group is proud to be part of an appeal that has raised more than £75,000 for a charity supporting homeless and hospice charities.

SCS was one of a number of charities which took part in CRASH charity’s 2016 No Christmas Card appeal, donating Christmas card budgets to CRASH in return for an animated e-card.

CRASH, of which SCS Group is a patron, is a unique, practical charity that assists homeless and hospice charities with construction-related projects.

It offers pro bono professional expertise, sourcing building materials and technical knowledge to use them and awarding cash grants sourced from its patron companies.

More than 120 companies involved

More than 120 companies took part in the appeal and CRASH – the construction industry’s charity – has listed them all on its website to say thank you – click here to see the list.

CRASH said: “Together we have raised more than £75,000 which will enable CRASH to continue our work supporting homeless and hospice charities with their building projects.

“By working together in this way we can make a real and lasting difference to the lives of people when it matters the most.”

‘Important to support CRASH charity’

Macarena Machado, SCS Group’s Operations Manager, said: “It’s so important for us as a company to support CRASH, particularly at Christmas.

“Our team are always keen to get involved in fundraising and I’m sure that will carry on this year.”

SCS Group’s other fundraising activities for CRASH include taking part in the 100-mile Prudential RideLondon, Christmas Jumper Day, CRASH Charity Sailing Cup (Port Solent), Paris Marathon and the Windsor Half Marathon – all in 2016.
