The Liverpool Construction Best Practice Club has made two donations with profits made from sponsorships and subscriptions to two local charities.
The Constructing Excellence Liverpool Club chaired by Zoe Brooke, Whitfield & Brown Limited is a non-profit making organisation that prides itself as being the disseminator of Government led agenda to improve industry performance & Best Practice in the region.
The Liverpool Club boasts nearly five hundred members ranging from local authorities, mental health & acute NHS trusts, higher/further educational bodies as well as many of the leading construction industry professionals including architects, quantity surveyors and engineers.
At the start of 2014, it was decided that the club would nominate two charities who would be beneficiaries of any profits made for the forth-coming year.
The charities chosen were Zoe’s Place, (www.zoes-place.org.uk) the only baby specific hospice in the UK to offer palliative, respite and end of life care to infants and children up to 5 years old and James Greenop Foundation (www.thejamesgreenopfoundation.org/). This charity was established by James family following a tragic road accident and they raise money tirelessly to re-invest the funds into the community and other worthy charities in Liverpool & the Wirral.
Zoe Brooke was quoted as saying “As committee members we dedicate a lot of our free time on a voluntary basis to ensure that the club translates the Construction 2025 vision. We all agreed that there should be some incentive for our efforts other than those stated and channeling the profits to local charities seemed the most rewarding motivation for the time we give.”
