The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (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.
Members were handed a cheque for £50 and given four months to turn the £50 into as much as possible.
The total amount raised was announced at this year’s Strictly Highways virtual award ceremony. To date, the challenge has raised a whopping £7,000. Some challenges have been delayed and so we are hoping this will be even higher in the coming weeks and months.
The two companies that have raised the most so far, are Wilde Consulting Engineers and Bethell.
We would like to say a big thank you to all organisations that took part in the challenge, including:
• SR Williams • JMS Lincoln • Meon • Bethell • RSTA • Wilde Consulting Engineers • Colas
Our very own team at LCRIG even donned their trainers to take part in the Blackpool Memory Walk to contribute towards the challenge.
