To round off our festive #12DaysofHCE giving with a bang, we’re making our twelfth and final donation a double-whammy!
Starting things off is Pocklington Rugby In The Community. Located in (you guessed it) Pocklington, this newly established charity is “working to strengthen the community through activities that promote health and well-being and enhance lives for all.” Their three core goals are as follows: promoting the game of rugby by hosting a range of activities, broadening participation by supporting partnerships with other sporting organisations, and increasing the number of people of all ages participating in regular social activities.
The charity hosts and encourages all kinds of events and activities for their community; volunteer awards nights, PockDown (the town's family funday), movie nights, and more! Enabling community spirit like this is such an amazing thing to see, and something we will always advocate for!
And last, but certainly by no means least, is The Valley Project! You may remember that we supported them a few months ago with volunteers and materials to help construct their new toilet block. We’re supporting them once again this Christmas with a donation to help them continue their dedication towards providing a safe outdoor space for children and young people in Bradford.
In total, we donated £800 (£400 to each respectively), meaning we’ve knocked our £5,000 donation goal out of the park! We’d like to extend our thanks once again to Pocklington Rugby In The Community and The Valley Project, as well as our gratitude to ALL of the charities we supported over the last few weeks. Every single one of these is undertaking vital work to make our country - and the world - a better place for everyone. Their inspiring work is extraordinary to see, and we strongly encourage all those reading to support them too if possible!
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for joining us for this year's #12DaysofHCE, and have no doubt that we’ll be back next year to do this all over again - until then, from everyone here at Howard Civil Engineering, we’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year - see you in 2024!
