Innovation to Prosper the Community
At Sapphire, our guiding principle is “innovation to prosper the community”. In line with this, we work to uplift our community with charitable donations and purposeful innovations throughout the year.
The need is greater now than it has been in more than a decade.
In light of COVID-19 and the profound impact it has had on UK construction workers, the need for charitable giving is growing daily. In response to this and in alignment with our values we are working hard to support construction charities such as the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, and you can help too!
Supporting the Lighthouse Club
The Sapphire Daily Marathon Challenge
For everyday Sapphire staff complete a marathon between us the company will donate £50 to Lighthouse. In addition, staff will be individually fund raising to provide as much support as possible. Whether it’s a walk, run, cycle or row we’ll be going the distance to fight for construction workers in need.
ResiBuild Virtual – Contribution
For every one of our free virtual events you attend live we’ll donate £1. Tune in to Resibuild Virtual Lockdown Learning to improve your performance and productivity while working from home.

NHS Charities Together
The Sapphire Bi-Weekly quiz
Every two weeks our staff host a charity quiz. Entrance to participate is £5 minimum. This quiz dedicates some time for staff to virtually participate in a fun activity on a Friday afternoon. If they are the lucky individual to win, they will receive a prize, of which half will be donated to charity. The remaining proceeds raised go to the NHS Charities Together.
Sapphire staff are also doing their bit to support their local communities.
We have created a helping hands flyer for staff to offer to help their neighbours and vulnerable individuals in their communities. This flyer provides a template for staff to provide their contact details and offer services to their neighbours.
