LCRIG’s President presents cheque to Trinity Hospice
Will Britain, President of the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) visited Trinity Hospice in Blackpool last week with a special delivery.
Following the completion of the LCRIG £50 Challenge, a grand total of £7,748.75 has now been raised. Will presented the cheque to Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnership Manager at Trinity Hospice, which will now go towards helping the charity continue to support patients and their loved ones.
LCRIG challenged all Project Amber framework contractors to come up with innovative ideas to raise as much as possible for their chosen charity, Trinity Hospice. The challenge received support from across the highways community.
The total amount raised was announced at this year’s Strictly Highways virtual award ceremony.
Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnership Manager at Trinity Hospice commented: “On behalf of everyone at Trinity Hospice THANK YOU SO MUCH to LCRIG for taking on their £50 Challenge to support our patients and their families. Your incredible support and the support of your contractors, have made such a difference in a year that has seen us face many challenges.
“The support you have given, helps us to continue to reach all who needs us!”
Will Britain commented: “We are very grateful to all the companies that took part and donated generously to the challenge to raise funds for our chosen charity. I am delighted that we have been able to raise such a significant amount to help Trinity continue to provide vital services to homes across the Flyde Coast.”
We would like to, again, say a big thank you to all organisations that took part in the challenge, including:
The Government is being urged to ensure guidelines for future Mobility as a Service solutions have standardised approaches to collaboration, avoid being prescriptive on modes and insist on mandatory data sharing.
