Willmott Dixon leaves a legacy

17th November 2017

Willmott Dixon Construction Hitchin proudly donated over £6,300 to the Lighthouse Club following ‘Legacy Week’, where project and office based teams were challenged to raise as much money as possible to help those in the construction industry who find themselves in need of support.

Activities ranged from welly-wanging competitions to sponsored car washing, a cycle distance challenge, five-a-side tournament, as well as bake sales and barbecues. Construction sites and office based teams worked together to create a whole week of Lighthouse Days.

Stephanie Hensman, Principle Sustainable Development Lead says “Our annual Legacy Week is all about bringing our teams together and focussing on all the good work we do in striving to be the most sustainable business in construction day in, day out. We decided a fundraising challenge benefitting the Lighthouse Club would be an ideal goal for all our people and our supply chain to unite behind this year. The outcome, both in the amount raised -just from simple fun activities- and the team spirit that was generated has been fantastic.”

Legacy Week has been formally running in the business for just two years. The week not only focusses on raising money for charity, but also on becoming a more sustainable business, investing in local communities and young people, and bringing our people together.

A big thank you goes out to all the welly wangers, washers, cyclists and footballers..you did a great job!
