ENGIE Fabricom Supports Two Great Charities – CARE’s Toys for Joy Appeal, Grimsby and My Sisters Place, Middlesbrough

By | Charity

ENGIE Fabricom UK and Resource Direct Recruitment (RDR) are proud to support two fantastic charities this Christmas – The Christian Action Resource Enterprise (CARE) Toys for Joy Christmas Campaign 2019 and My Sisters Place, Middlesbrough.

Having supported both these charities before, the Toys for Joy Appeal aims to collect new toys and gifts for children aged 0-18 years who are known to social agencies to be most vulnerable and likely to receive nothing at Christmas due to their families’ unfortunate financial circumstances.

My Sisters Place, help women and their children to be safe and free from violence and abuse through their one stop shop.  So this year we are collecting food, toys for all age groups and toiletries for the women.

In previous years, both campaigns have proven to be a huge success and we ask anyone who can donate or get involved to please contact either CARE at enquiries@carenelincs.co.uk. or hello@mysistersplace.co.uk

macmillan coffee morning

Macmillan Coffee Morning – ENGIE Fabricom raises £449.70

By | Charity

Macmillan Coffee Morning:

 

ENGIE Fabricom held coffee mornings throughout the business in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.  All of our offices took part and together, the total amount raised by the Company was an amazing £449.70.

 

Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist healthcare, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.  It also looks at the social and practical impact cancer can have and campaigns for better cancer care.  Macmillan take time to understand a person, so that they can provide the support, tools and inspiration needed to find the best way through it. They do it like this because they understand everyone’s cancer journey is unique.

The world’s biggest coffee morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event,  people all over the UK host their own coffee mornings raising money for such a great cause.  The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.

 

Thank you to everyone who supported the event by either baking or buying cakes, taking part in the sweepstakes and generously donating to such a worthwhile cause.

 

ENGIE Fabricom hosts events throughout the year, raising money for both local and national charities – if you would like to read more charity news stories click here

Football

ENGIE Football Tournament September 2019

By | Charity

2019 Football Tournament:

 

ENGIE Fabricom participated in the ENGIE Charity Football Tournament on Friday 20th September.  The night always raises a huge amount of money, this year the charity was the Amethyst Unit at Grimsby Hospital.

 

ENGIE Fabricom’s football team consisted of Greg Carney, Mechanical Engineer, Jake Roberts, Piping Designer, Nick Wingate, Project Controller, Gary Nimmo, Piping Designer and former employee Craig Parker.  During the group stages, our team won two and drew one, managing to get to the quarter-final where they won and went through to the semi-final.  Unfortunately, they were beaten in the semi-final.

 

Well done to those who took part and contributed to a worthwhile charity.

 

The Amethyst unit is a £4.4 million haematology, oncology and rheumatology unit at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital which opened in 2012 and was named by patients and staff.

The unit is home to:

  • Haematology/oncology ward (Amethyst ward) and outpatient department
  • Amethyst day case unit for chemotherapy treatments
  • Rheumatology Ward (D1 Hazel) and rheumatology day case
  • Rheumatology outpatients department.

The Amethyst unit provides a very fitting environment to care for patients with the quality, privacy and dignity they deserve. Two dedicated garden areas within the unit enable patients to sit in a relaxing environment while enjoying some fresh air and a dedicated relatives room is a great benefit meaning people can stay overnight and have their own en-suite facility.

By | Charity

ENGIE Fabricom’s Savoury Blue Day raised a huge £380.97 across the business, supporting our two charities for 2019: Magic Moments and Great North Air Ambulance.  Employees dressed down in blue clothes and brought savouries in to sell for our Savoury Blue Day.

 

Thank you to everyone who made and bought savouries and to everyone who donated to such worthwhile charities.

 

The aim of Magic Moments is to raise money to fund holidays, short breaks, day trips and recreational activities for autistic children, their families and carers in North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.  Magic Moments is also there to offer support to all families and allow the siblings of autistic children to, for a short period, have a taste of a normal childhood.  In addition to providing  “Magic Moments“ for the children,  It also improves their self esteem within the group and helps inject some  sunshine into the very limited world of an autistic child.

 

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 wins ENGIE Charity Golf Day 2019

The ENGIE Charity Golf Day 2019 was held on Friday 19th July and this year was in aid of Mind, Macmillan and the Princes Trust.

                                                               

  • Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.  They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.  They won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect

 

  • In 1976, HRH The Prince of Wales had a bold idea.  Having completed his duty in the Royal Navy, His Royal Highness became dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK.  He founded Prince’s Trust to deliver on that commitment

 

  • Since Douglas Macmillan founded Macmillans charity in 1911, they have grown to be the UK’s leading source of cancer support, helping more and more people living with cancer, all with your help

 

The venue for the ENGIE Charity Golf Day  was the Shire London.  The Shire London, Hertfordshire is a 27 hole club; 18 hole, par 72 (7028 yard) Seve Masters Course and the 9 hole academy course.  A private, parkland golf course and the only golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros in the UK.  Immaculately conditioned.  No two consecutive holes the same par.  Six threes, six fours, six fives, links holes, parkland holes, and dramatic water holes.  The competition consisted of 96 golfers making 24 x 4 person teams.  The format for the day was a Stapleford Am/Am better ball competition with 2 golfers to score on every hole and 4 to count on the difficult 18th water hole.

 

The teams were made up of ENGIE employees, clients, vendors and sponsors.

 

ENGIE Fabricom was invited to attend and sported a four man team consisting of Andrew Kofoed, Principle Mechanical Engineer, Paul Croft, C&I Engineering Manager, Mark Bryant, Interim Commercial Director and Lee Taylor, Senior Process Engineer.

 

The team ‘All FORE One’ were of mixed abilities, but more than made up for their handicaps with boundless enthusiasm on the day.  The weather was changeable with a chance of rain.  The first 5 holes remained dry, but eventually the rain and wind started.  Needless to say the standard of golf dropped considerably during the rain and wind, particularly for many of the players on the course who hadn’t brought an umbrella or waterproofs.  However team ‘All FORE One’ kept there sprits high and Andrew Kofoed even managed to get his first Eagle on the day.  Although no single individual scored very high, there was consistent play, with team mates filling in for each other when anyone faltered.  As a team they managed a respectable 84 points when they finally walked off the 18th green 5.5 hours later.

 

None of the team expected to win, but as whispers and gossip started to spread in the clubhouse, it became apparent that 84 was a pretty good score.  It wasn’t until the meal and prize giving that ENGIE Fabricom realised that ‘All FORE One’ had a real chance of winning.

 

When Graham Oxley, ENGIE Managing Director – Energy with Services announced the third place score was 81, ‘All FORE One’ knew they were in the prizes.  When Graham invited ENGIE Fabricom up to collect first prize, none of the team could believe they had won.

 

Jade Boggust, ENGIE Business Development Manager was the key organiser of the event and later told Andrew that ENGIE had raised circa £4,500 for the chosen charities. (Picture below shows Andrew Kofoed, Mark Bryant, Paul Croft, Jade Boggust, Graham Oxley and Lee Taylor)

 

The event also proved to be an excellent opportunity to network with other parts of the ENGIE business and establish some new contacts.

 

Needless to say ENGIE Fabricom intends to take part in 2020 to defend their title.
