Bond It backs Lighthouse Club fundraiser
Published:  08 May, 2015

Bond It has lent its support to a builder raising funds for the Lighthouse Club, which provides welfare assistance and support to construction industry workers and their families during times of injury or ill health.

The business sponsored Will Linday as he undertook a mammoth, 1000 mile, Land's End to John O'Groats (car) Run in aid of the building industry charity.

A self-employed builder for 35 years and now enjoying the benefits of semi-retirement, Mr Linday has been a Lighthouse Club member and supporter for two decades.

This is the third time he has completed the Lighthouse Club's Land's End to John O'Groats Run in aid of the charity.

The event is about careful planning and good navigational skills as opposed to speed. Entrants must make their way from one end of the UK to the other via a series of checkpoints and without the help of devices like sat-navs.

Mr Linday undertook the run in a Nissan Micra, which is at the end of its useable life, and that was originally destined for scrapping and recycling.

Speaking of his involvement and of Bond It's support, Mr Linday, said: "The Lighthouse Club Run is a great way to help the Club raise both funds and the profile of its valuable work in support of the construction industry. It’s also immense fun. I'd like to thank my son for acting as co-driver and Bond It for the company's generous support. I’m already looking forward to the 2016 event."

David Moore, managing director at Bond It, added: "As a manufacturer whose products are used across the construction industry, the work of the Lighthouse Club is close to our own hearts. We are delighted at being able to support that through our sponsorship of Will."
