Costain signs up for CARE challenge

Intrepid teams of engineers from across the construction industry are already signing up to take on NCE and take part in the 2010 CARE Construction Challenge.

The event will take place in Wales’ Brecon Beacons National Park on 3 July. Teams will hike, bike and raft the distance of a marathon and will face hurdles such as assembling their own rafts.

Funds raised will go to aid and development agency CARE International, who work in 70 countries helping 59M people a year to find a route out of poverty.

A team from Costain are the latest adventurers to sign up for the challenge alongside an intrepid team from NCE.

The Costain teammates are currently working together on the A40 Penblewin to Slebech Park Improvement in Pembrokeshire, for the Welsh Assembly Government.

“I only had to ask once for volunteers,” said team manager Phil Whitney. “The whole site believes in helping local groups, especially those involving young people − and this fund raising opportunity is a natural extension to this, whilst having a great deal of fun.”

Each team will raise £3,000 to support CARE’s work. CARE aims to raise £75,000 from the event. Places are still available for construction teams.
