June 2019

From handling CIS and Self Assessment to tackling tax refunds for tens of thousands of building trade clients each year, RIFT was built to lighten the load of UK construction workers. Our partnership with the Lighthouse Club charity gives us the chance to do even more. The Lighthouse Club offers vital financial, practical and emotional support for people in construction, and we’re proud to stand with them and champion their work.

Here’s a run-down of the charity’s key news and events for this month.

Lighthouse Club Golf Days

The Lighthouse Club’s range of Golf Days is always popular. Here are the latest slots for your golfing calendar:

JSP contributes over £15,000

As the leading manufacturer of “above the neck” Personal Protective Equipment, JSP holds a vital position in the UK’s construction industry. The business is also a committed supporter of the Lighthouse Club’s work, and makes contributions to the charity for every UK sale from their selected PPE range. Contributions from the last year of the Lighthouse Club’s JSP-sponsored Pro-Am Golf Tournament in Surrey were recently handed over by JSP CEO Mark Johnstone, amounting to an impressive £15,358.05. It’s contributions like this that form the bedrock of so many of the Lighthouse Club’s activities, and it’s incredible to see this level of sustained support.

£2,310 from Umberslade

West Midlands strip out and groundworks contractor Umberslade recently took part in a local Fun Run in aid of the Lighthouse Club. Their team of runners - consisting of James Earl, Tris Dimmock, Mark Field, Jez ‘The Hulk’ Emmett, Ed Emmett, Dean Marshall and Dan Long - did the charity proud. What’s more, Umberslade itself provided match funding sponsorship, boosting the total raised for the charity to £2,310.
