The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity has announced the appointment of Sarah Bolton as the new CEO, with effect from 1 April 2024. This news comes after the charity announced that Bill Hill, the current CEO, will retire on 31 March 2024 after more than a decade of service.

Edward Naylor and Lyndsey Gallagher, joint chair of Trustees, said: “Bill’s leadership has been instrumental in significantly growing the charity and guiding it towards its mission of providing essential support to those in need within the construction industry.

“His passion, commitment, and tireless efforts have left an indelible mark on our charity and the lives of those individuals we have been able to support through difficult times.”

In acknowledgement of his achievements, the Trustees stated that they will be presenting him with the title of honorary vice president, ensuring his ongoing involvement with the charity. He will also be combining a personal passion with his fundraising event experience as he takes responsibility for the growth of the Lighthouse Golf Club.

In the past five years with the charity Sarah has transformed the charitable services being delivered across the construction community, a statement said. She has also fostered a dynamic senior management team ready to take on the challenges and future growth of the charity, it noted.

Sarah said: “I am extremely proud and excited to lead a charity that makes such an impact on people’s lives. As new CEO, I am responsible for the stewardship of our charity going forward and building on the significant achievements and growth during Bill’s tenure.

“Achieving our vision that no construction worker or their family feels alone in a crisis comes with challenges, but those challenges bring out the best in our fantastic team and inspire us to deliver the best possible support to our diverse construction community.”

The Trustees of the charity have expressed their optimism for the future with a new generation of leadership taking the charity forward, the statement added.

They have also acknowledged the vital contribution that supporters make in the success of the charity, it cited, thanking those that donate so generously and those that dedicate invaluable time and resources to raise awareness of the help available.
