EDIT: England did SO well!! We accomplished so much as a TEAM and have so much to be PROUD of. So many supporters and great leadership qualities to admire (courage, perseverance, compassion, resilience to name a few) as well as appreciation for all those who took part in the competition. Achievement is about recognizing just that.
Whilst slightly relieved about the prospect of a new hair style, Simon also recognizes the huge morale impact these events can play so was a bitter sweet result. He is therefore ‘prepared’ (I have booked him in the hairdressers!) to go ahead in recognition of the huge triumph England achieved by getting as far as they did, support our employees and also the Lighthouse Club charity provides a fabulous well rounded Employee Assistance Programme for construction workers and their families. If we can reach our target all pledges go straight to the charity (otherwise they are refunded to the pledgers), all proceeds go to the charity https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/simongoesblond any support you can offer is greatly appreciated so that we can meet the target for the charity. We promise to post photos!
With England winning the Euros match against Germany last night morale amongst many is high at the moment, which has been a much needed boost.
We have received a note from the suggestion box that Simon our MD gets a ‘Phil Fodden’ for charity (as pictured as I had no idea), if England win the Euros.
To support this venture (and to add some additional peer pressure) we will seek to support the construction mental health awareness charity The Lighthouse Club, who also provide so many other valuable resources to support all construction workers and their families.
If you, or anyone you know, or you are a client/stakeholder who would like to make any donations please hand them in via our Accounts Department who will keep it safe until we deposit the total next week.
Please watch this video reflecting the importance of the charity: https://www.buildingmentalhealth.net/uploads/b/26888939-110746185808165601/crossrail_video_611.mp4
Aside from extensive resources now more readily available to support mental health, we also pride ourselves on the additional support we extend to our employees through in-house mental health first aiders.
Anyone can provide support by recognising the signs, being kind and extending a listening ear.
