Sally Amos of children’s cancer charity Candlelighters receives part of the money raised by contractors working on the Bridgewater Place development in Leeds from (L to R) SES managing director Peter Lewis, Bovis Lend Lease operations director Peter Millet and SES project manager Jon Swales.

Following a fund-raising event at one of the most high-profile projects in the north of England, M&E company SES has given over £13 000 to local charities. Construction workers involved in Bridgewater Place in central Leeds were challenged to race to the top of this 32-storey landmark — over 600 steps. SES electrician Richard Dobson won with a time of 4 min 11 s.

The money was donated by 13 contractors involved in the scheme, including SES. As the winner’s employer SES chose three charities, including Leeds-based children’s cancer charity Candlelighters and York against Cancer.
