New initiative supports building industry charities

Published:  12 November, 2013

Pinnacle Consulting has launched a joint initiative that benefits one of two construction industry charities each time they place a candidate. The scheme is designed to provide long-term support and awareness of the charities’ good work. Pinnacle’s chosen partners are Lighthouse Club and CRASH.

The initiative is very simple: when a vacancy is filled, a donation is made by Pinnacle to the preferred charity of the employer and the employer is also given the opportunity to donate. On a quarterly basis, Pinnacle’s charity partners will be presented with the funds generated during that period and the clients who helped in raising the money will be also be thanked for their support.

Managing director of Pinnacle Consulting, Steve Rogan, commented: "It is vital the building industry recognises that to succeed, everyone has a key role to play. It is also important the industry uses its knowledge and expertise to support those less fortunate than ourselves. This is the basis on which we have carefully selected our two beneficiaries - their causes should be close to our clients’ hearts and they are something they can be actively involved with too.”

Established in 1956, Lighthouse Club, the construction industry charity, gives financial help to construction workers’ families, plunged into financial crisis when they lose their breadwinner’s income through illness, injury or death. 

Bill Hill, chief executive of Lighthouse Club, said: “We are delighted that Pinnacle Consulting has chosen the Lighthouse Club as one of their charity partners. The funds raised by this programme will make a profound difference to the individuals and families within the construction industry that we support. It is initiatives like this that demonstrate that our industry has a “big heart” and cares for its people."

CRASH is the construction and property industry’s charity for homeless men and women. It works to address issues of homelessness by harnessing the skills, products and goodwill of the construction and property industry.

Kate Marsh, development manager of CRASH, is delighted with the support received from Pinnacle and its clients. “CRASH relies on the generosity of companies within the construction and property sector, to continue to help homeless men and women," said Ms Marsh. "All the money CRASH receives through this fundraising initiative will go directly to help homelessness projects across the UK. We are so grateful to Pinnacle Consulting for all their support and generosity.”
