Esh staff and subcontractors raise money for ‘Wear Red Day’

Esh staff and subcontractors on our ‘Ironworks’ project in Leeds raise over £800 for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund’s ‘Wear Red Day’.

On 7th February 2020, staff in Esh’s Leeds office, site staff and subcontractors on our ‘Ironworks’ project in Leeds supported the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund’s ‘Wear Red Day’. Together, we raised a total of £865.

Office staff took part in raising funds by wearing red clothing, red makeup, and bringing in red baked goods, while our on-site staff wore red hi-vis jackets to raise awareness of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) and the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF).

CHSF is wholly funded by donations to provide life-saving medical equipment for the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, parent accommodation for families and vital ward resources. Over 22,000 babies, children and adults with CHD are treated as outpatients by the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit every year.

We offer a huge thank you to all Esh staff who took part in raising money for this amazing charity, and we would particularly like to thank our team on our Esh Build ‘Ironworks’ site in Holbeck, Leeds.

Allan Irvine, Senior Project Manager on the Ironworks site, said:  “I would like to thank Esh staff and our team at the Ironworks scheme for your contributions to this amazing and vital charity. Your effort and generosity is exemplar and greatly appreciated!”

We are currently constructing a mixed-use development which includes 53 apartments, 15 townhouses, commercial units and an under-croft car park on behalf of PfP igloo scheme.

The subcontractors who were involved included:

  • Howard Civil Engineering
  • Dynamic M&E Ltd
  • HT Scaffolding and Hoardtek

Children’s Heart Surgery Fund is delighted to be working in partnership with Esh Construction. Their incredible contribution to Wear Red Day has blown us away.

Esh’s donation will help enable our vital work. For instance, that amount would enable us to support eight families with Kardia devices, which allow patients to record their heartbeat remotely, reducing hospital visits and providing continuous care.”
