Lucas renews sponsorship of Asthma + Lung UK
Lucas is delighted to announce our renewed sponsorship and partnership with Asthma + Lung UK. We have worked closely with the British Lung Foundation for the last five years before and after its 2020 merger with Asthma UK.
We have long been aware of the sensitive nature of our work in construction and with paints and coatings especially. We were proud to be a founding partner of their Living Well Alliance and we are proud now to be their official construction industry partner.
We are passionate about protecting the health and wellbeing of our operatives and have a great affinity with the charity which is researching and campaigning hard to protect and improve the condition of the nation’s lungs and the air we breathe.
We have partnered with them on site-based lung testing and their knowledge and experience helps us with our training programmes to maintain best, up-to-date practices at all times.
Sarah Woolnough, Chief Executive of Asthma + Lung UK, said: “We’re thrilled to confirm the next year of our partnership with Lucas, having worked so closely together over the past 5 years. With 1 person every minute being diagnosed with a lung condition in the UK, the continued support form Lucas will help fund finding new solutions to the biggest challenge in respiratory prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management, tackling the issues that matter most to patients and making sure that the results are likely to improve the lives of people with lung conditions for generations to come.
Having Lucas from the construction industry as a partner is very important to us. They help us raise awareness that asthma and poor lung health, which are so costly both personally and nationally, can be improved by early diagnosis and a better understanding of lung disease. We look forward to providing health advice and workplace lung testing to Lucas employees during our partnership to aid in protection against the effects of high air pollution.”
