There was a fun atmosphere in the offices on Friday 18th March when everyone 'dressed down', or up in some cases, to raise funds for Sport Relief. Our current total stands at nearly £300 - well done everyone for supporting this worthy cause - and having some fun too!

Ping pong Briggs and Forrester tournament

Who would have thought that ping pong could be so competitive! Teams from our Engineering Services and MEP divisions in the South East Region had a great evening last week in a mixed group competition. It was a perfect way to bring players from across the company together for a ferociously fun series of games. The victors were Lorraine Kirkham, Paul Rupply and Martin Sheaf – evidently last minute substitutions were necessary!

Football at Briggs and Forrester Birmingham office

Our Birmingham office was a house divided recently for the inaugural Upstairs v Downstairs football match. It was a tense game as the lead passed backwards and forwards, but after dives, missed shots aimed more at the car park than the goal and flying tackles, victory was sweet for the Upstairs team.  £76 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Well done teams!
