Bam construct has made a contribution to today’s Red Nose day funding efforts, by arranging for one of its crane drivers to be read to by an admirer.
Diane Padgett lives opposite Bam Construct’s site for South Thames College, and wrote a humorous poem about the crane and its driver.
This morning, she read the poem to him, as Bam hung a giant red nose on the crane itself.
Project manager Andy Lock has donated the hire costs of the crane for the week to Comic Relief, and ordered Red Nose day T-shirts, helments and noses for all of the site team.
The poem starts:
I watch him from my window
All day long - my hero!
Remote, aloof, remaining
Even when it’s raining.
It has five stanzas in total, and can be read in full at Bam’s website at www.bam.co.uk
Mr Lock said: “Bam is delighted to help Diane raise some money for Red Nose Day. It is fun for the guys on site and good for our relationship with the college. We hope people will log on to the Bam homepage and support Diane.
“I never expected all of this to grow up out of my innocent request! I’m a little nervous but very enthusiastic about going up the crane! I hope people will give generously but only what they can afford.”
