BAM Construct UK has announced that they have a new charity partner. The construction company has teamed up with CLIC Sargent, the children’s cancer support charity. Bam has also pledged to raise £100,000 for the charity over the next two years. The money that is raised by the construction company will mean that more children and young people that have cancer are able to thrive instead of survive during and after their treatment.
The team at BAM Construct have chosen CLIC Sargent as their new charity after inviting a number of different charities to pitch for the position of their new charity partner. The pledge by Bam to raise £100,000 could mean that CLIC Sargent would be able to provider more than 4,000 hours of support for the young cancer patients as well as offering support for their families.
CLIC Sargent’s team of nurses, social workers and frontline medical staff based around the UK fight to reduce the impact cancer causes areas beyond the child or young person’s health by looking to reduce disruption in areas such as education, social life, finances and future prospects.
BAM Construct will be carrying out employee fundraising activities in order to raise funds to meet the target that they have set. On top of this there will also be opportunities for members of the BAM team to volunteer at the CLIC Sargent ‘Homes from Home’ facilities. These are houses that are close to specialist treatment hospitals around the UK and are offered as free accommodation to the families when they child is undergoing treatment. The charity has welcomed the support offered by their position as charity partner for Bam Construct UK, and it is hoped that the money raised by the construction company will make a significant difference to the patients that are helped by CLIC Sargent.
