“We are now looking forward to working with Andy’s Man Club, to fundraise in support of men’s mental health. Over 560 people in the construction industry lost their lives to suicide last year and with additional funding, more centres can be opened to provide a lifeline for those in need. We look forward to announcing our programme of fundraising events in the coming months.”
