The team at our Briggs & Forrester Warrington office have been ‘actively’ fundraising in support of a very good friend, Andrew Mason, who was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. 

Andrew has spent the last 28 years fundraising for various charities, so they were eager to help Andrew with his own very worthy cause. They completed a 258 mile run in 24 hours, which is the distance from the B&F Daresby office to the B&F Northampton Head office…and back!!

Stuart Collis, Mechanical Estimator for Briggs & Forrester Special Projects, has recently taken part in the renovation of the Bletchley Rugby Club.

He led a team of volunteers who helped to complete the works on the pitch side barriers. Local companies BSS and Huggins & Squire supplied equipment, tools and materials to get the work done.

There were extensive repairs required to the pitch side bar, which was subject to an arson attack last year. These included the clearing of dead ground, removal of various waste and painting.

The Rainbow Run is a 5k run of colour explosions! It’s not a competitive race but a great fundraising event for hundreds of adults and children to run, jog or walk around Westpoint in Exeter, while enthusiastic volunteers and sponsor’s throw powder paint from locations along the route. Susan and Roz were situated at the yellow paint station, and they had a great time!
