Nationwide Traffic Solutions raised £1050 in just one month with their charity campaign with a ‘traffic management’ twist and received an overwhelming response from the construction industry.
The award-winning traffic management business pledged to donate £5 per qualifying traffic management drawing completed throughout October. Following the announcement of the campaign in the press and social media, requests poured in. CAD technicians Sam Piatt and Peter Barker completed an amazing 210 qualifying drawings, raising £1050.
The business, which supplies traffic management across the UK from depots in Essex and Lincolnshire, plus additional satellite depots, delivers High Speed, Street Works and pedestrian management for events.

The team were delighted to raise such an amazing sum so quickly for the worthy cause, which is the company’s chosen charity for the second year in a row.
Grace Goodall, NTS Business Services Manager said: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers who have helped us raise so much in our latest campaign. What a fantastic amount to raise in such a short space of time!
“Our CAD team have worked so hard to meet such a high demand for our traffic management plans and have done amazingly – along with our Planning team who raised awareness of the campaign to their contacts.
“Once again a great team effort – well done to all!”
Bill Hill, Lighthouse Club CEO, said: “It’s great that NTS have raised so much money for our charity. With their support we can continue to provide help to our construction workforce via our Construction Industry Helpline. Their idea of donating money for each traffic management plan is a great one, keep up the good work!”
