The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families. The charity does not receive public funding and is therefore totally reliant on the generosity of those within in the industry to help continue its vital work.

The charity has 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, when they 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.

Wilson and Scott are the longest established line marking company in the UK and despite its envious safety record, are delighted to support such a worthwhile industry cause.

Current incidents are shown on a map using a red warning triangle symbol. By clicking on the red triangle symbol, you get further information about the incident.
