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

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.

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.”
