Falcon Tower Cranes Ltd are committed to supporting local charities in and around our head office in Shipdham. We believe that as a responsible business, we must actively contribute to helping others financially, with our time, energy and leadership.
We aim to be an aspirational crane hire brand that is recognised for the good that is given back to our local communities by our employees.
Our primary goal is to genuinely improve the position of the causes that we support. The secondary, but equally important goal, is to engage our employees in these activities as we recognise it is good for their development and self-awareness. Whilst there are a large number of worthy projects and causes, we have to focus to make sure that we are effective and that we support others to be the best they can be.
See below for our past and present supported charities.

Mind is a charity that provides advice and support to “empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem”. They actively campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of what is often a very complex issue. Statistics show that 1 in every 4 of us will experience a mental health problem and Mind are there to support and advise those people to ensure they do not face the battle alone.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing a mental illness, Minds advice is to always talk and share your feelings. Here are a few tips that Mind advise to help someone who is suffering from a condition such as depression, the most common mental disorder in Britain:
- Keep active - Many people find exercise a challenge but gentle activities like yoga, swimming or walking can be a big boost to your mood.
- Eat well - Eating a balanced and nutritious diet can help you feel well, think clearly and increase your energy levels.
- Get good sleep - For lots of people who experience depression, sleeping too little or too much can be a daily problem. Getting good sleep can help to improve your mood and increase your energy levels.
- Be kind to yourself - None of us achieve all our goals. Don't beat yourself up if you don't do something you planned to, or find yourself feeling worse again. Try to treat yourself as you would treat a friend, and be kind to yourself.
