Cambridge Construction rugby in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK

Congrats to the Consultants team at the recent Cambridge Construction Industry Charity Rugby match. Unfortunately Stephen Green from Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services was on the losing Contractors team, but as he said afterwards, “It was a good day with some good rugby, supporting a great cause – and we enjoyed a few post-match beers too!” The event raised over £5,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, so well done everyone who supported.
