We won at the Inspiring Women in Property Awards

We’re delighted to announce that the Pagabo Foundation won the ‘Mental Health and Wellbeing Initiative of the Year’ award at the Women in Property Awards, hosted by Property Week.

This is in recognition of great work the foundation has done in recent years, including the FeelGood Games which raised over £34k to support better mental health in construction.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the great work done by Harriet Parker who has led on a variety of fundraising activities for the foundation and helped to coordinate free mental health first aid qualifications for the sector.

Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to collect her award, but Ryan Dall attended in her place and was pleased to share a table with inspiring organisation, Real Estate Balance, Women of the Year nominee, Katia Polidoro, and Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Liz Peace.

Well done to all the other winners! 👏

The Feelgood Games returned to raise over £34,400 for the Pagabo Foundation

On the 15th of May 2023, 15 teams from the construction industry headed to the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds to battle it out across 8 events in the hope of becoming the champions of the Feelgood Games 2023.

Once everyone had arrived and signed in, Christine-Alice Hartigan from SPACE & PLACE led all the competitors and volunteers into the middle of the arena to take part in an inclusive warm up. Then it was time for the games to begin…

To kick off the competition, 3 separate events took place at the same time: boot throwing, long jump and the space hopper race. We saw some great performances from everyone involved, setting them up nicely for the remaining events. Once they concluded, it was then time for the next batch of three with the tug of war, 100m sprint and bean bag throwing.



The construction relay took place in the afternoon with runners dressed up in Hi Vis jackets, hard hats and safety goggles, to take on the 400m race around the track.

Then to finish off a jam-packed day, it was time for the all-important obstacle race. This track was designed to challenge all the opponents who dared to face it, from tire carrying to wall climbing.

It was great to see everyone taking part and giving it there all in the challenges, but as you know there could only be one winner. For the second year running, it was Lindum Group who took home the trophy after a series of impressive performances, especially in the obstacle course and tug of war.

Check out the full video of the day’s events, which was created by Ethics Leisure, below:



The main reason we host these games is to fundraise for our charity, the Pagabo Foundation. We know that the construction industry still faces huge issues when it comes to the mental health of its workers, and we are working hard to try and reduce the impacts that this has.

Whilst at the 2023 games, the Chairman of the Pagabo Foundation, Jason Stapley, provided an insight into what the money raised from these events goes towards and you can hear what he had to say in the video below:


Thank you to Morgan Sindall, Ashe Group, 43 Clicks North, Maven, Moodbeam, Red Kite Learning Trust, ISG, Graham, 8build, Cartwright Communications, Latus Health, Your IT and Faithful+Gould for sponsoring the event.

We would also like to thank everyone who competed in the games and those who donated to our charity, helping us raise £34,400.

We hope to see you all again in 2024!

The first Pagabo Foundation football tournament was a huge hit!

In April 2023, we ran our very first Pagabo Foundation football tournament at the Tigers Trust Arena. 8 teams battled it out to be crowned the champion and it’s fair to say all the teams gave it their all.

Our team, 55-A-Side, ended up topping the group after all of the matches were played, then it was time for the knockout stages. A poor performance from 55-A-Side resulted in a 5-0 loss to Faithful+Gould in the first semi-final. Meanwhile, Edge were victorious over Lindum Lincoln to advance through to the all-important final game.

After an end-to-end finale, Edge were able grind out a 4-2 win over Faithful+Gould to take home the trophy.

The main GOAL of the tournament was to raise money for the Pagabo Foundation and we did just that with an amazing total of £3,500. The money raised will go towards tackling the mental health issues that face the construction industry, so all donations were very much appreciated.

A big thank you to City Holdings, Henry Boot, Edge, Lindum Group, Faithful+Gould and Seddon for taking part!

Team Pagabo and partners raise over £4,000 in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

On the 27th of April 2023, we took on the Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Members from across The 55 Group and Pagabo trekked 24 miles over the famous peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough to raise important funds for the Pagabo Foundation. Most participants aim to complete the challenge in under 12 hours and we are proud that some members of the team completed the whole walk in just over 9, a hugely impressive achievement!



Challenges like the Yorkshire Three Peaks make it possible to raise the vital funds the Pagabo Foundation needs to support a variety of initiatives, which ultimately support the mental health issues that the construction industry face.

We’re delighted to say that we were able to raise over £4,264 through this challenge. We’d like to say a huge thank you and well done to everyone who took part, and give a special mention to those who helped to organise it.
