Brogan Group have finished the Tall building challenge, raising £2,000 for the Lighthouse Charity, that provides emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families.
Volunteers from our UK and Ireland divisions clocked up over 2,800km walking or running a set distance each week for 8 consecutive weeks.
The distance was based on a multiple of the height of 8 Tall buildings Brogan Group have provided Access on.
These were Boland’s Quay Dublin, Apex House, Wembley, West Tower, Liverpool, Capital Gate Splash, UAE, Walkie Talkie Tower and the Scalpel in London and the mighty Burj Khalifa in the UAE. A lighthouse was included in the mix in honour of the charity itself.
The Lighthouse Club charity specializes in mental health support and Brogan Group have recently committed to supporting it’s own workers by signing up to the Building Mental Health Charter with Building Mental Health. This is a cross-industry group that enable all parts of the construction sector to access mental health support, provide awareness and training and put in place a structure and systems to support people working in and around our industry.

"As well as being one of our valued Company Supporters, Brogan have also undertaken a fantastic fundraising challenge for us which is great news. They're also helping us raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health in the industry which is crucial to our mission that no construction worker or their family should feel alone in a crisis".
