First Base, Clancy Docwra, Affinity Sutton and McNicholas all back #loveLIVES

A resident living near to Building Lives’ Camden academy has pledged £10,000 to the campaign to save almost 200 budding apprentices.

The donation by the resident came after they had read of Building Lives’ plight in the Evening Standard ten days ago.

The campaign has received multiple individual donations in the six weeks since it launched and dozens of messages of support.

Other donations in the last week include £5,000 from First Base, which has also contributed £5,000 through its Silvertown Partnership.

Clancy Docwra, McNicholas and Affinity Sutton have also pledged £5,000 each.

Total donations have now passed £265,000, with just a week to go to raise a total of £400,000.

Construction News, KPMG, the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity and Building Lives all have meetings this week with prospective partners.
