More Eggs-acting standards
The site team donated 170 Easter eggs to Once Upon a Smile, a charity helping bereaved children.
The eggs were topped off with a cash donation and some toys, books, and clothing for children who cannot have chocolate.
Neil Wright, BAM’s Senior Site Manager, said:
“I met Daniel from Once Upon a Smile by chance at a football game. When he finished telling me about the work he did I had tears in my eyes. We thought we’d manage 20 or 30 eggs, but when our clients Airedale and our supply chain became involved, and the lady who runs our canteen raffled a huge egg, the generosity was incredible. It’s been a big team effort and I want to thank them all.”
Daniel Jillings, Charity Manager of Once Upon a Smile said:
‘We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen by BAM Construction as their charity beneficiary. This Easter appeal that has been completed will make a massive difference this Easter to the families we support. We would like to thank Neil Wright and all the staff that took part in making this appeal a success.”
The charity was formed in 2011. It supports parents who have lost a partner or and children who have lost a parent by giving financial support, organising respite breaks and providing children’s bereavement support, which Daniel says, “is surprisingly lacking” from other provision.
