Fundraising reaches new heights


MOUNT Kilimanjaro in Tanzania has become a second home for the construction industry as two teams of intrepid fund raisers reached the peak in the past two weeks.

Tony and Joe Hester hoisted the Redrow Homes flag at the summit as part of a sevenman team, which raised £50,000 for the homeless charity, Emmaus.

The Laing O'Rourke logo also took pride of place at the peak, courtesy of steel fixer Andrew Poiner, who raised £4,000 for cerebral palsy charity, Scope.

Andrew said: 'This was the most challenging, worthwhile experience of my life and I'd like to say thanks to Laing O'Rourke for their backing and in particular all the lads from the UCLH and Phillimores Developments who kindly sponsored me.'
