Victoria Dock Portal project site supports local East London charity

The project team at Crossrails Victoria Dock Portal have raised 800 for London charity Richard House Childrens Hospice.

Several international lunches were held to celebrate the project teams diversity and to sample foods from around the world whilst raising funds for the hospice. The lunches included Tex Mex, Jamaican curry, Irish cheeses and soda bread and food from the Pacific and Mediterranean.

Having keen football fans working at Victoria Dock Portal, a weekly game of predicting the football results also helped top the charity pot.

Aiden Goggins, Senior Project Manager from Taylor Woodrow, said: We are delighted to support the important work of Richard House, which provides such crucial services to help sick children.

Richard House is the only childrens hospice in East London and cares for seriously ill children and their families by providing support and positive experiences.
