The staff at OBCL have repeated last years success and raised £15,000 from a series of organized events and challenges throughout 2018. Because the staff reached their target, O’Brien Contractors Limited generously matched the sum raised by staff, making a fabulous total of £30,000 for the O’Brien Charitable Trust good causes.

Events were organised throughout the year by our hard-working charity committee, made up of 7 members of staff, who work tirelessly throughout the year, organising events to raise much needed funds for our chosen charities. The events are enthusiastically supported by all staff and this year’s events, have included:Christmas Jumper Day – Which is very competitive!

Movember – Even the girls joined in with fake moustaches!
3 Peaks Challenge – Staff took to the hills!
Wolf Run – Staff got stuck in on the very wet and muddy course!
Charity Golf Day / Charity Auction – Staff took on our suppliers raising £8,523!
Site to Site Walk – Trekking 12-miles from our project site in Gaydon to Cubbington.

The charities that will benefit from this year’s fundraising events include:

Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance – Rapid emergency response

O’Brien – 2018 in Review

With the end of the year in touching distance, O’Brien felt it would be appropriate to finish it with some positivity.

Here is O’Brien’s year in review which shows how the company has exceeded its business objectives across the board for 2018.


Here at O’Brien we have had some mo-mentous fundraising results for the trust. Movember has been a huge triumph with an epic £3,125 being raised by the team and this figure is still rising.

The Charitable Trust are over the moon with the success of the tache-growing-team, their fundraising efforts has meant that O’Brien have met their £15K target for 2018.

Peter O’Brien said: “With only 4 people in the Movember team, £3K + is an unbelievable total! It has been a fantastic success, simple, straightforward and great fun. Thanks very much to everyone involved and most importantly it will have just got us past the annual £15K target, which is brilliant.”
