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.
