SPOA dinner raises £5,000 for construction charity

THE Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA) has revealed that £5,000 was raised for the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity at the trade body’s recent annual dinner in Glasgow.

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to members of the construction community and their families.

John Sibbald, president of the SPOA, said, “The SPOA was delighted to welcome Nicola Campbell from the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity as a guest and to witness firsthand the appreciation members have for the great work the charity has been doing to support our members and their families, not least in its Make It Visible campaign.”

The SPOA’s ‘Machine on a mission’ – the Police Scotland livered JCB 3CX, loaned by Scot JCB, made an appearance at the Glasgow Hilton event.

Paul D’Ambrosio, key account manager at Hilti, added, “We were proud to be platinum sponsors of the SPOA’s Annual Dinner. It was a great opportunity to support the event and we look forward to working more closely with the SPOA in the future.”

Nicola Campbell, regional ambassador at the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, commented, “I was honoured to be invited, on behalf  as a guest of the SPOA to celebrate with members at its Annual Dinner and encourage awareness for the charity. It was a fabulous event and all at the Lighthouse Club are extremely grateful to the SPOA for this generous donation.”
