ENGIE Fabricom would like to say thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s Red Nose Day, by dressing down and wearing something red to support vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally.
After a successful year of fundraising, ENGIE Fabricom UK is pleased to announce that a total of £2,211.52 was raised for each of their two chosen charities for 2018, Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Great North Air Ambulance.
Lindsey Lodge, based in Scunthorpe provides first class specialist care to adults in North Lincolnshire with a progressive life limiting illness as well as offering palliative care for day and inpatients and their families.
Great North Air Ambulance provides pioneering pre-hospital care rescuing hundreds of severely ill patients across North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria with their three air ambulance helicopters.
To raise money for these charities, ENGIE Fabricom took part in a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year, including dress down days, raffles as well as raising money by their Positive Contribution Commendation awards scheme. This award is a positive recognition scheme to reward employees for any contribution to the effective performance of the business and contributing to the aim of being our clients’ partner of choice.
Employees can be nominated for any positive contribution to all aspects of the business, operationally, commercially or from a health and safety perspective by their managers, senior supervisors or customers.
The process gives the Company an excellent opportunity to say thank you to the employee and to also contribute to the charity chosen by the employees for that year.

ENGIE Fabricom raised a fantastic £272 across the business last Friday by dressing down. All monies raised will go to supporting their two charities for 2019: Magic Moments and Great North Air Ambulance.
Thank you to everyone who dressed down and donated to such worthwhile charities.
Magic Moments helps autistic children and their families have short breaks, holidays and day trips to ensure they are able to have a taste of normal childhood.
Great North Air Ambulance fly three air ambulance helicopters across the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria to bring pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene.
ENGIE Fabricom has been working with Lindsey Lodge over the last week to help transport Christmas trees for recycling. Approximately 393 trees were collected from the local area and all proceeds raised will go to support Lindsey Lodge.
Lindsey Lodge provide first-class specialist care to those in North Lincolnshire with any progressive life-limiting illness. Set in idyllic grounds on the edge of Scunthorpe, they provide all-round care.
Joe Hodgson, Regional Site Services Manager commented: “Lindsey Lodge was the charity of our choice in 2018 and it’s great to be able to assist them with this project. The work they do to help people is incredible and gives them opportunities they may not have had. It is great for us as a Company to help support our local community.”

ENGIE Fabricom UK spent yesterday working alongside British Steel engaging with local communities by providing transport and a driver (Steven Rich from ENGIE Fabricom, pictured above) to help deliver hundreds of kilos of food to foodbanks in Scunthorpe.
Joe Hodgson, Regional Site Services Manager from ENGIE Fabricom commented: “This was a fantastic opportunity for ENGIE Fabricom, not only are we helping support families in the local community we are also building stronger relationships with our client, British Steel.
“It was great to be involved and to be able to give our time to allow local families to enjoy this time of year. British Steel collected a total 768.7kg of food, which will feed approximately 50 families. At this time of year this effort goes a long way for the area.”
Bottesford Town Under 9s have been playing football in the Scunthorpe Junior League for 3 seasons now, managed by Sam Horton, who is Watch Manager for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service.
The team currently have 12 players aged between 8 and 9 who all have a very enthusiastic approach towards football, their aim as a team is to ensure that the young players learn and enjoy football in a safe environment. The team’s philosophy is to ensure that the young players understand the importance of staying active and having a positive attitude towards a teamwork environment. Sam’s role is to help provide coaching that develops the children’s confidence, skills and self-esteem.
Bottesford Town JFC is a community club with FA charter standard status, funding can always be a contentious issue as they are a voluntary organisation.
Sam Horton commented: “The sponsorship that we have been fortunate enough to receive from ENGIE Fabricom will go a long way towards securing the future of the team and the sporting development of the players. We are excited to be representing ENGIE Fabricom and aim to do so in a way that promotes their Company values. Hopefully along the way we can add some honours to the trophy cabinet!”
Mark Astwood commented: “The enthusiasm shown by these young players and the commitment of the volunteers like Sam Horton, Team Manager are very much in line with the values and community spirit we promote at ENGIE Fabricom. The presentation and sponsorship of the kit was greatly deserved by all involved at Bottesford U9s Football Club and goes a long way to keep these local teams running and their aim to promote a healthy lifestyle, team spirit and confidence in the future footballers and engineers of our community.”
