Team driving improvements for women

Roadworks being carried out on the A180 in Immingham have led to a donation to the gynaecology ward at Scunthorpe General Hospital.

Costain is a leading engineering solutions provider and the main contractor working on behalf of Highways England on the A160/A180 improvements scheme. 

As part of the scheme they are donating £1 every time a member of their staff submits an “observation card” – a process designed to ensure safety while working on the highways.

In the past month the company raised £300 to give to local causes, and following a vote from the staff, half of the money is going towards care of patients with endometriosis at Scunthorpe General.

The A160/A180 scheme is a £90million road re-development project to upgrade the section of highway network at the approach to the Port of Immingham.

Community relations officer for Costain Stephen Ellis said: “Costain is committed to providing a working environment that promotes and maintains the wellbeing and good health of our staff, supply chain and all other stakeholders engaged in our work.

“We recognise that people are our most valued resource and their health and welbeing is essential to their work and performance.

“The observation card system is not only designed to promote a safe working environment but also to raise charitable donations that can help make a positive diference in the community.

“Many of our staff live and work in the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole area and rely on the good work and professionalism shown by organisations like the NHS Foundation Trust.

“This donation is just a small token of our appreciation and we hope that this will help to make a small but positive difference to the community’s health care.”

Ward 19 gynaecology sister Wendy Chester said: “We are really grateful for this donation towards endometriosis, it will go a long way in making a big difference to our patients.”
