PROjEN raises over £500 for KidsCan
PROjEN has raised a total of £545 for the charity KidsCan following a successful health and safety initiative at one of the company’s major industrial projects. The “KidsCan” Children’s Cancer Research Centre is working hard to promote and support research into the causes, prevention, treatment and cure of cancers in children. No other charity researches into specifically children’s cancers which makes their work both unique and vital.
Kidscan was chosen as the charity to receive the donation from the health and safety initiative by PROjEN’s Mark Warrington and Steve Campbell following a conversation with Mark and friend Gary Billington who works at INEOS Chlor. In an effort to help raise funds for Kidscan, Gary, along with Tony Wilkinson and a number of friends, took part in the 100 mile fund raising bike ride “The Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge” on Sunday 27th September. This has currently raised a total of £1,860 which is very close to the original target of £2,000
On all major projects PROjEN encourages a health and safety initiative at their various sites to promote the importance of excellent heath and safety practice. These initiatives are usually linked to a series of fund raising activities with partner contractors. This scheme was introduced by PROjEN to promote the safety culture for all PROjEN personnel and appointed sub contractors working on behalf of Greenergy on a major project in Plymouth. Fully endorsed by Greenergy’s Stephen McCaffrey, the health and safety scheme is a very important communication tool in educating all personnel on the issues surrounding safety in the work place.
