Willmott Dixon slave for the day Shelter

On 29th July Matthew Raybould, Operations Director at Willmott Dixon, was our ‘slave for the day’ at the Northampton office.

The Directors at Willmott Dixon were recently challenged by their COO John Waterman to raise as much money as possible for the charity Shelter in seven hours, in an Apprentice-style challenge.

Matthew volunteered his time as a 'slave for a day' as a prize through a fundraising auction and Briggs & Forrester was one of the successful bidding companies!

Family Fun Day, Briggs and Forrester, Special Projects

Our recent Family Fun Day went down very well with the teams from our Special Projects and Central Services divisions. The skies may have been a little grey but there was nothing dull about the classic events that employees and their families enjoyed – from welly wanging, to the sack race, to egg and spoon, to skipping, to the tug-of-war finale!

All proceeds from the day will be going to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Thank you to all our helpers and to the Northampton Casuals Rugby Club as an ideal venue.

Ride London bike ride WellChild

Good luck to our Group IT Development Manager Derek Hine who will be taking part in the Prudential Ride London event next Sunday 31st July. Derek truly is a glutton for punishment; after getting on his bike for our charity 100-mile office-to-office ride in June, this time he’ll be battling the Surrey countryside and the streets of London. Derek is taking part in aid of WellChild, the national charity for sick children, which provides practical help for youngsters with serious illness and complex conditions.
