ENGIE Fabricom delivers food and toys to local charity

By | Charity

With Christmas fast approaching and our thoughts turning to buying presents, food and drink for family and friends, staff at ENGIE Fabricom have been thinking about those less fortunate who do not have access to food stocks over the festive period.

Supporting the charity CARE, located in Grimsby and dedicated to relieving poverty, hardship and distress to those in need, ENGIE Fabricom’s East region has been busy collecting donations of food and toys to help vulnerable and disadvantaged families across North East Lincolnshire.

Every year leading up to Christmas CARE runs a Toys for Joy Scheme giving over 1,000 gifts out to children in need and a Fill Your Own Hamper Scheme helping provide families with food etc.

All the donations below were delivered this morning to the local collection point, where they will be distributed, helping provide families with food and Christmas goodies. The toys that were donated will enable children of all ages to wake up on Christmas morning to a gift.

A massive thank you to everyone who donated.

Update:

Dear Sarah – Fantastic! Thank you ever so much.
We sorted through your donations yesterday afternoon and they were brilliant and so generous. Please thank everyone involved and I will be in touch in the new year to let you know how the project went.

Richard and Dan commented:  “Our father suffered from heart disease as well as our uncle so we have seen first hand the incredible benefits of heart medication and clinical trials in improving quality of life.  We would like to thank everyone who sponsored us.”

ENGIE Fabricom sponsor Healing School for Formula 24 event

By | Charity

ENGIE Fabricom is proud to announce that they will be sponsoring Healing School in this weekends Formula 24 race in Hull.

The sponsorship agreement will help allow Healing School fund for improvements on their car to ensure that it is competitive and built to a high standard.

Local races are to be held in Hull as part of the City of Culture celebrations at the KCOM Stadium in Hull on Sunday 16th July 2017. The first race will commence at 11:45am.

Formula 24 gives pupils the opportunity to design, build and race an electric car. Pupils from Healing School have been involved in all aspects from building the car to marketing the project and attracting sponsors.

The nationwide project is run by Greenpower Education Trust, whose objective is to advance education in the subjects of sustainable engineering and technology to young people.

Andrew Mitchell, Strategic Development Director for ENGIE Fabricom, commented: “ We are delighted to sponsor Healing School with the Greenpower Formula 24 race. The pupils have worked very hard throughout the project and it is great to see young people getting involved with engineering at such an early stage in their lives, as well as being able to utilise the facilities at CATCH to build the cars.

“We would like to commend all of the pupils involved within the project as well as the teachers that have helped guide them throughout. We would like to wish everyone at Healing School all the best for the race on Sunday”.

Sam Horner, Assistant Principal at Healing School, added: “I’ve really enjoyed watching the pupils take on this challenge. They have had to apply for the role formally through application forms and interviews before proving their worth by working as a team with some taking on Team Leader roles. These roles have been varied including marketing, journalism, designing, building as well as racing the car and maintaining it through the upcoming race. All pupils have stepped up to the mark and have shown how well they are at working within a team as well as to very short deadlines. It’s also been great to have the support from so many of our local businesses as this is a great way to form links between the schools and local companies so we can work together in the future. I am extremely proud of all the pupils and fingers crossed for a successful weekend.”

Pupils from Healing School were asked why they applied to be part of the project.

Ben Newton (Y8):

I would like to go and work on the refineries as I enjoy this and it is a very interesting career choice for me. I would like to achieve this by getting an apprenticeship at HCF CATCH and working on a project like this will help me and give me really good, relevant experience.

Renee Purdam (Y9):

Because I would like to be an engineer when I grow up, and I thought it would be a good way and opportunity to find out more about engineering. I’ve really enjoyed building the car as it’s something I really want to get involved in in the future.

Carly Potter (Y10):

Engineering is a career I’m really interested in both in terms of designing and building a car to race but also in my role as the Team Leader for the logo. I’ve really enjoyed all the activities and gained lots of valuable experiences and I take great pride knowing that everyone is going to see our logo and I helped design that.
