TM firm raises over £1,000 in a month for industry charity

Nationwide Traffic Solutions’ October charity campaign with a traffic management twist has again proved a great success, raising £1,050 for construction industry charity Lighthouse Club.

The award-winning traffic management business pledged to donate £5 for each qualifying traffic management drawing completed throughout October.

Following the announcement of the campaign in the press and social media, requests poured in and computer aided design (CAD) technicians Sam Piatt (pictured) and Peter Barker completed 210 qualifying drawings.

Lighthouse Club provides financial and emotional support to construction workers and their families following injury, illness, bereavement or death. It is NTS’ chosen charity for the second year in a row.

Grace Goodall, NTS Business Services Manager said: ‘We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers who have helped us raise so much in our latest campaign. What a fantastic amount to raise in such a short space of time!

‘Our CAD team have worked so hard to meet such a high demand for our traffic management plans and have done amazingly – along with our Planning team who raised awareness of the campaign to their contacts.

‘Once again a great team effort – well done to all!’

Lighthouse Club CEO Bill Hill said: ‘It’s great that NTS have raised so much money for our charity. With their support we can continue to provide help to our construction workforce via our Construction Industry Helpline. Their idea of donating money for each traffic management plan is a great one; keep up the good work!’

NTS, which supplies traffic management across the UK from depots in Essex and Lincolnshire, plus additional satellite depots, delivers High Speed, Street Works and pedestrian management for events.
