CRASH: helping us build recovery

CRASH Charity trustee Matt Pullen (COO of the Genuit Group), along with Niamh McCann, the charity’s project manager, and Lucie Gillard, partnerships and fundraising manager, visited Kairos yesterday. Their visit coincided with the completion of phase two of the 66 Nunhead Lane development, which CRASH generously supported with a grant. Before joining the Linden Grove community for lunch they had a tour of the building.

The scaffolding gone, the the new side elevation sparkled in the sunshine revealing the new rooms upstairs for residents, and new windows over the two stories. (Phase one, completed last year, extended and renovated the Kairos Garden Day Programme on the ground floor and added a new kitchen and bathrooms upstairs.)

On Wednesday night last week (7 September), Kairos director Mossie Lyons attended CRASH Charity’s Patrons’ Night at AECOM’s offices in Whitechapel. CRASH has 36 patron companies from the construction industry. Alan Brookes, Chariman of CRASH trustees, welcomed everybody to the gathering. Highlight of the night was the tribute to Francesca Roberts on her 15 years as CEO of CRASH.
