Last month, Scudder Demolition supported a group of ten engineers from Knights Brown and Tony Gee who took part in the Bridges to Prosperity charity project in Uganda, by donating essential safety equipment.

On Friday 24th August, the volunteers travelled to the Bududa municipality of Eastern Uganda to build a 90-metre pedestrian footbridge across the river Passa. The Namakhoko suspended bridge will provide safe, year-round access for 4,000 local people, enabling residents to get access to and from essential healthcare, local markets and education centres, even during the rainy season when water levels are dangerously high.

We are delighted to support this initiative, buying and donating a recovery hook and six self-retracting lifelines which will enable the bridge to be built safely, whilst improving access and the quality of life for thousands of local residents in this isolated area. 

In preparation for the project, Oliver Hacke, one of the volunteers supporting the project, visited Carey Groups’ head-office in Wembley, London to collect the equipment, providing an opportunity to meet members of the Scudder Demolition team to thank them personally for their donation and support.
