BriggsAmasco supports ‘Roofing Racers’ charity fundraiser

For the fifth year running, BriggsAmasco was a part of a team of ‘Roofing Racers’ to complete the 750m swim in the Thames, 20km cycle and 5km sprint finish. And this year was the most successful yet, with a record number of fundraisers comprising 34 teams of three people (one person for each part of the course), as well as 47 individuals.

“This event is only possible with the sponsorship of a number of companies and organisations, and we are delighted to help in any way we can,” said Dave Maginnis, Managing Director of BriggsAmasco. “We are thrilled to be supporting the event again in 2012, as it continues to provide much-needed funds to extremely worthwhile causes.”

BriggsAmasco will be doing their bit again next year, helping to make the event bigger and better than ever and aiming to raise more than £100,000 in 2012.

BriggsAmasco waterproofing rescues Sea Cadets roof

In 2009, the converted boathouse developed a series of leaks that made the facility unsuitable to be used as a training centre for Merseyside’s 18 sea cadet units. With no funding or the required skills to repair the roof themselves, the Sea Cadets turned to roofing restoration campaign – ‘Fix That Hut’.

Alongside IKO, Chestnut Roofing & Building Supplies and Climax Scaffolding, BriggsAmasco completed the repairs to the highest standard to provide a building that would once again offer dry and warm conditions to train the community’s young cadets.
