British Gypsum race for CRASH

CRASH aims to address the issue of homelessness by providing expert knowledge, donating spare materials and awarding cash grants which can improve the buildings used by people in need.

British Gypsum joined hundreds of runners who braved unseasonably warm weather conditions on the 28th September to raise money for the construction and property industry’s homeless charity – CRASH.

Managing Director at British Gypsum, Mike Caldecott, was one of 5,000 competitors who took part in the 32nd Windsor Half Marathon, completing a 13.1 mile route around the grounds of Windsor Great Park in a time of 1:36:08.

Mike, who is a patron of CRASH, said: “Homelessness remains a huge challenge for the UK so it’s vital that those who are able to improve conditions for these people do everything they can. Utilising the industry’s skills and materials at hand is a great way of doing just that.

CRASH fundraising and events manager, Amy Hart, said: “It was a really wonderful day made even better by the fact that no less than nine of our patron companies had teams taking part in the event. We are so grateful to everyone who took part, especially considering how hot the afternoon was.
