During the recent Great East Run, a team of runners from law firm Prettys hit the road in aid of the Lighthouse construction industry charity and raised almost £400 in the process.

Partners Peter Blake and Matthew Cole, along with senior associate Louise Plant took on the gruelling 13.1 mile course to raise much needed funds for the charity that provides financial and emotional support to construction workers and their families.

Prettys’ construction team provides expert advice to the construction sector and decided to raise money for Lighthouse because of the important work they do for people working in this industry.

Louise Plant said: “The Great East Run was indeed a great event. The outstanding support along the way really helped, especially with ‘that hill’! We are delighted we’ve been able to raise money that will go towards helping construction workers and their families when they need it most.”

Bill Hill CEO of the Lighthouse Club charity said, “Without support from organisations such as Prettys we would be unable to provide a vital lifeline to our construction workers in need. With two construction workers taking their own life every working day, we desperately need to make a difference and Prettys have contributed to that huge effort. Well done team, what a great achievement”.
