BriggsAmasco earned a metaphorical ‘good deed’ badge after its maintenance division lent its waterproofing expertise to a local Scout group.
The team donated their time and materials to carry out a refurbishment of the 1st Surbiton Sealion Scouts’ hut. The building’s roof had fallen into a poor state of repair, and with a series of leaks threatening to interrupt the scouts’ weekly meetings, urgent action was required. In their haste to address the issue, the group turned to the local business community for help. When contacted, BriggsAmasco was more than happy to come to the scouts’ aid. Its maintenance team completed the roof’s repair outside of working hours, with their time and BriggsAmasco’s waterproofing materials, donated free of charge.
Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director, said: “This was a fabulous little project to be involved with, as it aligned to our culture of supporting worthy community causes when and where possible. I’d like to thank our maintenance team for the hut’s waterproof repair in a professional and timely manner. We hope the scouts will be able to continue their fantastic activities, safe in the knowledge their HQ is now fully-protected against the elements.”
In penning a note of thanks to BriggsAmasco for its intervention, Pippa Taylor, Group Chair of 1st Surbiton Sealion Scouts, said it was ‘an incredible act of kindness for a local charity. Thank you’.
The team at 145 City Road stepped into the fore when St Monica’s primary school requested help to get their Eco classroom ready for winter. The school is fortunate to have a green space including a pond and seated areas for children to learn in. They have a compost bin and wanted to rear chickens but have a resident fox which gets into the compost and would be a hazard to chickens. The team designed a fox-proof foundation for a chicken coop with assistance from subcontractors Briggs Amasco and DGP Logistics and created a fox-proof lid for the compost bin. The team of five volunteers cleared two skips of waste and shrubbery from the garden in only five hours.
For added sustainability value the team used waste paving stones from the site to make the chicken coop foundation and waste timber from site for the compost lid. What worked well about this volunteering was the team’s ability to work around meetings at the office – with a couple of team members popping back for meetings and returning to finish the volunteering task. The project could not have been achieved without the enthusiasm and support of personnel from subcontractors Dhesi Logistics and Briggs Amasco.
The McAlister team was born from the ashes of the u7 Dutch FC Lions when the Dutch Football Academy closed its doors at the end of the season in 2016. Four boys from the u7 Dutch Lions moved to Old Wilsonians Junior FC during the summer of 2016 and the u8 McAlister team was formed. With the addition of one more school friend and two boys from their closest rivals, Coney Hall they stormed the u8 season (unbeaten between September and December 2016) and finished 6th out of 52 teams in the Spring Cup.
Moving into u9’s during the summer of 2017, playing with a bigger team on a bigger pitch (7v7) and with longer matches, reinforcements were required and during the summer transfer window four fantastic additions were made to the team. During summer tournaments, the Macs made it to the final of one tournament and have continued their fantastic run by winning their first three games in the Tandridge League to date. Based in Hayes, Bromley most of the boys are local but with a few coming from wider afield, Farnborough, Groves Park and Croydon. The team has widespread heritages, including, England, Scotland, Spain, Turkey, Indian, Jamaican, Nigerian, American, Portuguese and Ukrainian, the boys really encapsulate a true global diversity.
With four boys training with Crystal Palace Elite Players/Teams, one with Arsenal Elite Players and three boys also playing with APD Elite u9’s the team is highly skillful, team orientated and are simply a joy to watch week in, week out. Besides playing great football, they are really striving to build an environment where the players have fun, develop as players and most importantly develop into respectful, humble, confident young people.
The Old Wilsonians club was formed in 1888 with members still joining from Wilsons School in Wallington, Surrey and with the club based in Hayes, Kent.
Briggs Amasco are proud to be able to sponsor such a diverse forward thinking team.
Parkwyddn JFC are a very well respected club managing a number of junior football teams in Eccles. We are a charter standard organisation based on Patricroft recreation ground. We are affiliated to Manchester County Football Association. Parkwyddn Junior Football Club have been providing football in the local Eccles community to children and youths since 1987.
Originally formed with two age groups, U12’s & U14’s. Since the early years we have grown in stature and now cover all age groups from U7’s to U16’s as well as our developing soccer school. We are now recognised as one of the bigger clubs providing junior football in the Eccles and Salford area.
The Charter Standard is an FA grading for the club which sets out certain requirements that the club has to attain every year to maintain the Charter Standard. This is a form of assurance for you that all the coaches within the club have the correct level of qualification and current CRC checks in place.
We are working hard to make your time with us a happy one. Our main priority is the safety and well being of everyone under the Parkwyddn umbrella.

With the sponsorship of the away kit for the U13’s kit last year Briggs Amasco have provided the U7’s with their Home kit for 2016/17 season. The club are hoping that the U7’s, who are actually on 5 years old will be as successful this season with the same sponsorship and Team Coach as the U13’s in 2015/16 season after they won the League Cup.
The black country Cobras are a children’s football team based in the Dudley area. There is an under 10’s team, an under 9’s team and mini kickers. The team was started by ex Aston Villa player Jinny Callagh in 2015 where thanks to the support from local companies it is flourishing.
The good news is that the under 9’s and under 10’s had their first game of the season on 11th September 2016 and they both won. We have sponsored their training strip and every child has been given a full kit thanks to Briggs Amasco.
