Bethell donation kick starts the LCRIG £50 Challenge
The LCRIG £50 Challenge has received a kick start thanks to a generous donation from civils and utilities contractor, Bethell.
The cheque for £1,500 was presented to Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnership Manager for Trinity Hospice by the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) President, Will Britain along with representatives from Bethell, John Walker and Heather Byrne.
The money was donated following a project carried out by Bethell’s civils team for Blackpool Council to infill an abandoned underground structure.
The LCRIG £50 Challenge
LCRIG has challenged all Project Amber framework contractors to come up with innovative ideas to raise as much as possible for Trinity Hospice over the next four months.
It costs £18,500 per day to operate Trinity Hospice – collaboratively we can reach this target.
We will keep you updated on our progress over the coming weeks!
