Gordon & Adam are cycling up (and back down) Mount Snowdon to raise much needed funds to enable us to provide free counselling support to people working in the construction industry who are struggling with their mental health.
If you’d like to support them, please visit their fundraising page:
Gordon & Adam work for Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd (Buckingham) and they are supporting their endeavors to raise funds for Relate Northamptonshire. Here’s what they said:
“We are pleased that Adam and Gordon have been inspired to raise awareness and money for charity. Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd (Buckingham) actively promotes the 5 ways to wellbeing. The company believes that focusing on this approach aids improved wellbeing and recognition of the importance of maintaining physical and mental health at work. We signed the Time to Change Charter in January and are actively implementing our action plan. We have appointed Mental Health Champions through the organisation and are developing the role by providing ongoing training and support. As a matter of policy, we provide mental health awareness training to all of our staff.

Operating from our Head Office near Silverstone, plus regional offices in London, Theale, Birmingham, Manchester, Warrington, and Doncaster, we bring more than 60 years of experience to our Public and Private Sector Clients throughout the UK and Ireland.
