Costain launched its 2015 national fundraising campaign, the 150 Challenge, in celebration of its 150 year anniversary.
The engineering solutions provider, aims to raise £1 million for four UK charities throughout 2015 by organising lots of different fundraising events for staff.
Costain have also committed to match the donations raised by employees with the final total to be split equally between the four benefiting charities; British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support, The Prince's Trust and Samaritans.
The Costain Charitable Foundation signed gift agreements with the benefiting charities at a special signing ceremony, attended by the CEOs of each charity, David Allvey, Chairman of the Costain Charitable Foundation and the Costain Group, and Andrew Wyllie, CEO of the Costain Group.
Tracey Wood, a Trustee of the Charitable Foundation, said: “The Costain corporate strategy is all about ‘Meeting National Needs’. We are primarily focused on providing solutions which enhance people’s lives whether this is on an engineering basis or, as with the Costain 150 Challenge, raising money and providing care for communities.”
Our Head of Corporate Partnerships, Amit Aggarwal, added: “We are thrilled to be one of the beneficiary charities of the Costain 150 Challenge. The British Heart Foundation needs the support of organisations like Costain to continue its life saving research across the UK. We can’t wait to see the different fundraising events come to life in the year ahead; every participant will be contributing to the fight for every heartbeat.”
