Famous faces including The Rt Hon Jack Straw MP and Chief Construction Adviser Paul Morrell have added their faces to the CRASH construction and property homelessness charity ‘Any face could be homeless’ awareness campaign.
CRASH was recently chosen by Ecobuild as their benefiting charity. During the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, attended by over 40,000 people, CRASH invited guest speakers and visitors to have their photograph taken in a special photo booth and literally add their face to the CRASH ‘Any face could be homeless’ awareness campaign.
Amongst those adding their face were:
Alexandra Ingram, Sales Director, Ingra Landscaping
Baroness Susan Greenfield, Professor of Synaptic Pharmacology Oxford University
Mike Chaldecott, Managing Director, British Gypsum
Mitesh Mistry Commercial Product Manager, Marshalls
Paul Morrell, Chief Construction Adviser to the UK Government
Sir Christopher Meyer KCMG, Former British Ambassador to the US and Germany
The Rt Hon Jack Straw MP, Former UK Foreign and Home Secretary
Tracie Reed, Marketing Manager, Bauder.
Paul Morrell said: "Sustainability takes many forms and it’s good to see Ecobuild acknowledging the vital role CRASH plays in applying the skills and generosity of our construction and property industry to projects that really do help homeless people."
Francesca Roberts, chief executive of CRASH, said: "CRASH is the construction and property industry’s charity for homeless people. We are a practical charity that focuses on improving and constructing buildings used to help homeless people. We do this in three ways; awarding cash grants, providing professional advice and supplying free materials.
We really are enormously grateful to Ecobuild for their support and particularly for the wonderful ‘prime position’ they gave us right on the crossroads between the two exhibitions halls. It offered an outstanding opportunity to raise our profile amongst an interested and informed audience."
