News: CRASH wins vote to be the charity we support at the 2018 awards

22 January 2018

Twitter poll results - CRASH is this years charity at the Constructing Excellence SECBE awards

We are pleased to announce that at this years Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards, we will be supporting CRASH Charity - who help homelessness and hospice charities improve their buildings.

Over the past four days we have been running a poll on the @CE_Awards Twitter page, asking our followers to vote for the charity they would like to see us supporting at this year’s awards. The three construction charities we chose were; Construction Youth Trust, CRASH Charity and Mates In Mind – all extremely worthy charities within the constructing industry.

The votes came flooding in and although it was a very close result, CRASH Charity won the vote by just 5% on Monday 22nd of January.

This will be the third year that CRASH has been the chosen charity for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards and last year they raised massive £5,974.57 in aid of the charity. The money raised enables CRASH to continue their vital work supporting homelessness and hospice charities with their building projects. Get involved in their work here.

We would like to thank all the charities for taking part in the poll over these past four days and for raising awareness of all charities involved.

Mates in Mind aims to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing in the UK construction industry. You can find out more about their work and fundraising here.

Construction Youth Trust is a charity helping young people in England and Wales to build better futures by giving them access to training, education and employment opportunities in the construction industry. Find out more about them here.
