Esh donate £8700 to YOR4Good
Many thanks to Esh Construction for the donation of £8,700 to the YOR4Good Fund as part of its commitment to one of the core strategic social value themes of the YORhub construction frameworks. The voluntary donation is an accumulation of Esh’s commitment to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits, whilst undertaking projects awarded through the YORhub construction frameworks.
The presentation was made at a recently completed Esh Construction project, Bubwith bridge. The Grade II listed bridge required major repairs which were delivered as part of a larger programme of bridge repairs on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Esh Construction has been appointed to both the YORcivil and YORbuild frameworks since they were first procured in 2009, and has been a keen advocate in supporting YOR4Good since the fund was developed in 2011, the first social value initiative of its kind in the country. This donation has been made through Esh’s Constructing Local strategy and is associated with the following projects awarded through the YORcivil2 Framework:
- Bellows Road CAZ on behalf of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council
- Ladycross S278 Works on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council
- M181 Northern Junction – Scunthorpe on behalf of North Lincolnshire Council
- Newstead Housing Enabling Works on behalf of Sheffield City Council
- Priory Road External Works
The donation adds to the £53,300 already donated by Esh to projects and charitable initiatives local to schemes procured via the YORcivil2 framework. In total, 26 projects have been supported through Esh Construction’s work on 21 schemes, with initiatives including a dementia friendly memory garden, installation of defibrillators across East Yorkshire as part of the CADEY campaign, and the development of a secure garden area for a charity that supports the homeless in North Lincolnshire.
