Sealants and adhesives supplier Geocel has announced the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity (Lighthouse Club) as its charity of choice for 2021. The company has planned fundraising activities to take place across the year.
The Lighthouse Club is the leading charity for providing emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to the construction community and their families. Through its confidential 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline and app, the charity provides information, advice and guidance. The charity also offers free construction-focused training programmes to support the industry, including hour-long interactive wellbeing sessions and first aid qualifications. As part of Geocel’s support, the Lighthouse Club’s helpline will be promoted on the company’s popular and recently redesigned Mate range cartridges.
Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Geocel’s charity partner for 2021 and we are looking forward to working together. By promoting our charity on their Mate range, Geocel is helping us to reach out to the trades and spreading the word about our charitable services to ensure that no construction worker or their family is alone in a crisis.”
Laura Hettenbach, senior trade brands campaign manager at Sherwin Williams, said: “It gives us great pleasure to announce that Geocel proudly supports the Lighthouse Club – The Construction Industry Charity. The organisation’s work is close to our hearts and, in these especially unprecedented times, it is our duty to do more. By raising awareness, we believe we can help reach those who really need the support and lifesaving guidance provided by the charity.”
