CRASH welcomes new patron partner
Published:  19 May, 2011

BRISTOL: Burdens has become a CRASH patron partner – supporting the construction and property industry charity for homeless people that has helped over 60 homelessness construction projects over the last year.

The company is the UK's leading supplier of civil engineering and building materials to the infrastructure, environmental and industrial markets. Its product range spans more than 18,000 lines, from gas and water pipelines to environmental-management systems such as rainwater harvesting.

"We really are proud and delighted to welcome Burdens as a new patron partner for CRASH," said Francesca Roberts, the charity's chief executive. "Patron partners like Burdens are essential to meeting the increasing funding needs and services CRASH provides.”

“Burdens largest single shareholder is its own charitable foundation, as a result we are always keen to support charitable activity in the key sector which generates our revenue. CRASH with its notable endeavours linking homelessness and construction was for us a natural and obvious choice,” said Chris Briginshaw, group marketing director, Burdens.
