Geberit and Lords Builders Merchants have become new patron partners of CRASH.

The charity works to improve the lives of people who have been homeless or adults and children who need end of life care in a hospice, by transforming the buildings they need.

As a patron partner, the companies will share their professional skills, building materials and donations to help homelessness charities and hospices with their vital construction projects.

Francesca Roberts, Chief Executive of CRASH, said: ‘‘We are honoured to welcome Geberit and Lord Builders Merchants as patron partners of CRASH.

“What CRASH achieves is only possible thanks to the generosity and support of our Patron companies and their commitment to helping people when they are most in need.’’

Brent Hudson, Marketing and Product Director at Geberit, said: “When we were deciding which charity to support, CRASH was top of the list.

“It’s a construction industry charity with a reputation for carrying out great work in support of homeless people and hospices. For us the fit is perfect and we look forward to supporting CRASH for many years to come.”
