NCE team takes on Welsh mountain - sponsor us now!

Intrepid teams of colleagues from across the construction industry are taking on the NCE Hackers 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.

NCE’s team is being sponsored by NCE/ACE Consultant of the Year Amey. Managing editor Mark Hansford, editor Antony Oliver, sales executive Francis Barham and news editor Alexandra Wynne all claim to be leading the team, so their activities will be worth following on a Twitter feed (details soon). All money raised will be gratefully received. And donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. Just go to

We are also on the look-out for a kit sponsor. Anyone interested should contact Francis Barham on (020) 7728 4525.
