Esh Construction and Foundation of Light build community partnership with £30,000 donation

Esh Construction is partnering up with Sunderland AFC to support communities in Sunderland, committing £30,000 over 2-years to support their charity, the Foundation of Light.

The award-winning construction firm’s civil engineering arm ‘Esh Civils’ is underway with a number of schemes across the city including phase 3 of Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC3) and are funding projects that address a wide range of community issues including homelessness, social inclusion for teenagers, family health and social isolation amongst the elderly.

SSTC3 is a continuous dual carriageway link between the A19 and the Port of Sunderland due to be completed in 2021. The scheme, which include the construction of the Northern Spire bridge, will fully open up the regeneration opportunities of development sites in Pallion, Deptford, Farringdon Row and other sites south of the river.

Esh is well known for supporting communities where their work takes place and were one of the first companies in the UK to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Promoting Opportunity and Social Mobility.

Darush Dodds, Head of Corporate Affairs at Esh Group said: “We’re very proud to partner with Foundation of Light, who like ourselves are firmly committed to making life better for everyone in Sunderland.

“The projects running in this partnership are quite varied, but all have a similar purpose – to help people realise their potential and live healthier and happier lives – and we’re excited to see this unfold.”

Lesley Spuhler, OBE, Foundation of Light CEO added: “This project will give opportunities for people from a broad range of backgrounds.

“Thanks to Esh we have put together a plan that will have the maximum impact for those who need it.”

Full details of the projects and how to get involved in them will be available in due course at www.foundationoflight.co.uk

 

Projects supported under the Esh Partnership:

  • Social Inclusion – improve access to opportunities for teenagers through sessions run on three evenings per week. Sessions include sports, workshops and peer-led activities.
  • Homelessness – education, life skills and help for those at risk from homelessness with a view to progressing into education, further training or employment.
  • Family Learning – improving health within the family unit through a series of innovative activities including understanding mental health awareness, healthy cooking on a budget and physical play.
  • Older people – reducing social isolation and loneliness through social groups where the focus is as much on meeting and spending time with people as it is taking part in activities.
