JSP hands over large donation to the Lighthouse Club to support the Construction Industry Helpline
Wednesday 16th May 2018
The money raised will help towards promoting and supporting this Helpline which provides confidential, 24 hour support and advice for the Construction industry's workforce and their families on any problems they are facing, including occupational health and wellbeing, mental health, or financial difficulties caused by accident, illness or bereavement.
Mark Johnstone, CEO of JSP Ltd handed this large donation to Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Club at the annual JSP & Team at Heathrow Construction Industry Charity Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Foxhills Golf Club, Surrey. Mark commented "JSP have been long term supporters of the Lighthouse Club Charity and we are delighted to make this donation and support those in need in the Construction Industry, not only for financial support but also providing a lifeline to those who need support with mental health issues and the day to day stresses of working within this environment."
Last year, the Construction Industry Helpline supported over 1500 construction families in crisis and over 400 families were granted £705,000 of emergency financial help. Of the 1500 callers, 1100 of these were given advice and support on issues ranging from stress and depression to legal, debt management and taxation advice.
