Each year Sweet Projects chooses one charity to raise money in aid of, and this year’s chosen charity is Honeypot.
Honeypot has been working to enhance the lives of young carers aged 5-12 years by providing respite breaks and on-going outreach support. In the UK nationwide, Honeypot gives young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provides a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential.
Although we have our chosen charity of 2022, we have also decided to support the brilliant charity The Lighthouse Club.
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families. They receive no public funding and rely on the generosity of those within the industry to help continue their vital work.
They have been delivering charitable support to the construction community since 1956. Founded by a group of gentlemen who had been attending a Ministry of Public Buildings and Works Exhibition on Tyneside, who found themselves on the seafront at Whitley Bay.
Under the light of St Mary’s Lighthouse, they vowed to extend the goodwill they enjoyed at the show by starting something to unite and benefit the entire industry. From that day forward, the Lighthouse Club was formed to offer aid and assistance to ill or injured construction workers.
We are delighted to be supporting both The Honeypot Children’s Charity and The Lighthouse Club. If you would like to donate you can do so here
