Charity COO wins at SECBE Constructing Excellence Awards

Sarah Bolton, chief operating officer of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, won the G4C Future Leader Award at the SECBE Constructing Excellence Awards. The awards took place at the London Royal Lancaster Hotel on Thursday 29 June 2023.

“I am absolutely delighted to receive this award,” said Sarah. “Simply being shortlisted was an honour, so to win was truly amazing and I’m still totally shocked.

“I am proud to have been able to manage significant changes within our charity to ensure that we are delivering first-class proactive and reactive resources to support both individuals and businesses alike.

“Ultimately, everything we do here at the Lighthouse Charity, we do as a team. Without that cohesion, we wouldn’t achieve what we do. So I’d like to accept the award on behalf of everyone in the charity and the amazing work we do to support our construction community and their families.”

Judges praised Sarah’s ability to enhance an inclusive, friendly working environment, and to address issues in a positive way, representatives of the charity reported.
Will Hunter, programme manager for the awards, added: “The SECBE Constructing Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the very best companies, collaborations and projects from across the London and south east region.

“The awards aim to recognise the best and inspire others to follow. SECBE couldn’t be happier with all the successes that were celebrated during the evening.”

A Lighthouse Lotto during the evening raised £3,460. Tom McConkey, charity head of partnerships, also shared information about the charity’s services with the audience to raise awareness of the many routes to support for those in need.
