Lighthouse said it had experienced remarkable growth in terms of services and families helped under Hill’s leadership. 

Trustees Edward Naylor and Lyndsey Gallagher added: “Bill’s leadership has been instrumental in significantly growing the charity and guiding it towards its mission of providing essential support to those in need within the construction industry.  

“His passion, commitment, and tireless efforts have left an indelible mark on our charity and the lives of those individuals we have been able to support through difficult times.”

“As new CEO, I am responsible for the stewardship of our charity going forward and building on the significant achievements and growth during Bill’s tenure.  

“Achieving our vision that no construction worker or their family feels alone in a crisis comes with challenges, but those challenges bring out the best in our fantastic team and inspire us to deliver the best possible support to our diverse construction community.”
