Members of the Howard Civil Engineering and Erris Homes team took part in the #QuaranTEN challenge last week, raising a whopping £3,414 for the property charity LandAid!
In lieu of the 23rd annual LandAid 10k challenge, professionals in the property industry across the nation were instead challenged to walk, run or cycle 10,000 steps, 10km or 10 miles by themselves in their local areas. Howard Civil Engineering and Erris Homes team members faced this challenge head on, with people of all ages and fitness levels getting involved to raise money for LandAid.

Our target was originally set at £500, but we quickly surpassed this and managed to raise a fantastic total of £3,414 – placing us fifth on the nationwide leaderboard!
Our fundraising efforts will help LandAid to assist charities delivering life-changing services for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness in the future. Young homeless people have disproportionately affected by COVID-19 pandemic and are most in need of urgent help to survive this crisis.

We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to all of the team members who took part, and a massive thank you to our families, friends, colleagues, suppliers, and subcontractors who supported us!
