Construction challenge launched

Teams from the construction sector are wanted for a foot, bike and canoe challenge over 26 miles to raise money for humanitarian agency CARE International.

The charity has launched the fourth annual CARE Construction Challenge, which is supported by New Civil Engineer and Ground Engineering.

It will take place in Exmoor National Park in Somerset on 6 July 2013.

CARE Challenge manager Neil Munro said: “Providing shelter to vulnerable people and families is a crucial aspect of CARE’s work. This challenge will raise vital funds to support our overseas aid and development operations. At the same time, it’s a fantastic teambuilding and networking opportunity.”

Over the past three years, the CARE Construction Challenge has raised £133,000 and included teams from firms such as Balfour Beatty, Willmott Dixon and BAM Nuttall.

CARE’s emergency preparedness, response and recovery programmes reached nearly 12.5M people last year in countries including Bangladesh, Haiti and Madagascar.

If you work in any sector of the construction industry or supply chain and want to take on the challenge, visit the website or call the CARE Challenge Team on 020 7934 9470.
