Wear Red For Children 2022

Glencar is delighted to have raised over £1000 for the #WearRedForChildren campaign which saw construction sites across the country turning red on the 14th of February.

2022 is the second year of the #WearRedForChildren initiative, created by Frank Hughes, MD of North London Structures and Groundworks and FTH. In its first year the campaign raised £16,000 for 2 children’s charities. Now in its second year and partnering with The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, they are hoping to exceed this and have extended support to 5 incredible charities.

The video below gives more insight into the campaign and was produced by one of Glencar’s supply chain partners, Powerday.

Today is the last day of fundraising for the 2022 campaign and donations can be made by clicking here.

Donations are being collected by The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity in a special children’s reserve fund and distributed to support the chosen children’s charities. Distribution of the funds raised will be The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity Children’s Reserve (33%), Crumlin Children’s Heart Centre (33%), Mercy University Hospital (11%), Cork University Hospital (11%) and Make a Wish Foundation (12%).
