CN Awards raises £17,000 for industry charity

The audience at this year’s Construction News Awards raised nearly £17,000 for construction charity CRASH.

The event, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Mayfair, on 14 July, brought together more than 1,200 contractors, clients and suppliers.

Attendees gave generously, raising £16,940 through charity collections and a silent auction.

CRASH chief executive Francesca Roberts addressed the crowd, speaking about the charity’s work in helping homeless charities and hospices with construction projects.

Construction News editor Colin Marr said: “Construction News has supported CRASH and its work through our annual Construction News Awards for many years now. The work CRASH does is hugely important and has a life-changing impact on the many people it helps.

“The CN Awards celebrate the successes of the construction industry and its supply chain. But it also provides an important opportunity to consider and help those in society who are less fortunate and need support.

“Construction News’ partnership with CRASH is only possible because of the generosity of construction industry donors, who have given thousands of pounds to help those in need. This is the sector’s way of giving back and we are incredibly proud of its achievements.”

Roberts said: “A sincere thank you to the fantastic CN Awards team and guests who gave so generously to support CRASH’s work, helping people who are homeless, and children and adults with a life-limiting illness.

“The CN Awards enable CRASH to continue our vital work, with both the profile it gives to the charity and the donations that have such a positive impact on so many people across the UK who need our help.”
