The M4 J3-12 Smart Motorway project has raised £100,000 for charity with the BIG NIGHT IN virtual event organised by Balfour Beatty VINCI joint venture.

Zone Contractors Ltd were Silver sponsors for this event that more than 500 people signed up to watch. The evening featured guest speaker and Guinness world record holder Ed Stafford who best known for walking the Amazon river and TV shows on the Discovery channel. Other speakers included; Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive; Julian Gatward, Taylor Woodrow Managing Director; Peter Anusas, Project Director; Abbey Reid, Communications Manager; Verdun Davies, Works Manager and a range of project colleagues speaking emotionally about the NHS.

The team reached the impressive £100,000 target with more than £95,000 coming from corporate sponsorships from the project and suppliers. Zone was one of 30 suppliers giving sponsorship donations ranging from £1000 to £15,000.

The £100,000 is being split between three charities: the NHS Charities together COVID Appeal, Slough Foodbank, and Daisy’s Dream (a local charity supporting children through bereavement).

We were honoured to be part of the event in aid of some really important charities, we are extremely proud of the Zone Worker who was the inspiration for this event.
