Peter O’Brien, Managing Director at O’Brien Contractors, said: “As a charitable trust, our mission has always been to give back to the community we work in and to those who need it the most. Even though we have exceeded our annual target year-on-year, to reach a quarter of a million is a fantastic achievement and we hope to continue the hard work for many more years.”

Dearbhla Craddock, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We continue to be amazed by the efforts of the local community, who play such a huge role in making a difference in the lives of the children we support and their support. Organisations like O’Brien Contractors are an integral part to our fundraising activity, making our mission to support vulnerable children just that little bit easier.”
