McCann joins National Highways’ Scheme Delivery Partners (SDF) volunteering in support of St Luke’s Hospice
While our team continues to work across the length and breadth of the UK delivering community-defining infrastructure projects, we’re ensuring that we maintain our commitment to supporting local communities, charities and organisations through a range of social value activities and initiatives.
Last month, several of our employees joined colleagues from across National Highways’ Supplier Delivery Framework (SDF) Areas 7, 9, 10, 12 and 13 to dedicate a day of their time to supporting St Luke’s Hospice, volunteering at its Crookes store in Sheffield.
St Luke’s Hospice provides urgent and palliative care for adults in and around Sheffield living with terminal illness. The team helps to control patient symptoms and offers them the best possible quality of life at no cost to themselves. As a result, the Hospice relies on its charity shops as an important source of funding.
Organised by our colleagues working within SDF Area 12, Lisa Beck and Ben Feltham joined ten other volunteers from our delivery partners for a day supporting staff at the Crookes store, sorting through donations made by the general public – raising an estimated £2,800 towards patient care.
Making time for social value activities and giving back to our local communities has always been integral to our business and is something which Ben Feltham, Head of Compliance, feels is ever more important as we embark into 2023.
“Social value sits at the heart of our business model and as an initiative, it means a lot to the people we employ. As a company that touches upon a wide range of communities across the UK, it’s important for us to give back to people in as many ways as we can in order to make a difference and leave a positive, lasting legacy,”
“St Luke’s Hospice undertakes vital work within the Sheffield community, so we were honoured to have the opportunity to lend a hand and help raise money towards life-changing care for its patients,”
“As social and economic factors continue to have an impact on many of our lives, it’s becoming increasingly important for us to remain committed to supporting local people wherever possible.”Back to top
