Ebsford love a bit of light-hearted competition between departments and so the mention of a possible 5-a-side company match did not go unheard.

The suggestion soon turned into a well-planned event complete with witty team names, makeshift hi-vis bibs and of course a bar for the less energetic of us to enjoy a drink, whilst cheering on the players.

The date was set and after some pre-match fighting talk, the Ebsford team gathered at the local football centre for what would be an eventful evening. Despite a few members being missing/ lost, the two teams; Ebsford United (Tottenham Hopperspur) and Environmental FC (Aston Screener) kicked the game off to a flying start.

Before long, the first few goals had been scored and a number of collisions had occurred, but both sides were putting in their all to secure a win. As the match continued it soon turned into mayhem, the teams were gaining new players, losing players, we even had a dislocated finger at one point. However everyone managed to make it out alive, although no doubt a little sore the next day.

The final score was debatable with a possible last-minute goal from Environmental FC, but the teams shook hands on a 12-12 draw. Afterwards, the group embarked upon post-match drinks to celebrate and discuss tactics for the next game, no doubt this will become a frequent event here at Ebsford.

Here at Ebsford we are proud to support our local clubs and organisations, most recently two well-deserving football teams; Dewsbury Rangers FC and Altofts AFC. Teams like these provide a fun and friendly environment and also a chance for people to get outdoors, exercise and meet others with a similar interest.

About the teams

Since 1993 Dewsbury Rangers have always been at the heart of the local community in Earlsheaton. Offering opportunities for children as young as 5 years old, who are just starting their football journey.

On this occasion we have chosen to sponsor the Ladies team (the only female team in the club). The team have been moving forward in their league since 2012 and with their 8th season approaching, excitement is building for what could be achieved. Our sponsorship will contribute toward club clothing for the ladies.

Deb Thomas, the Fundraising Chair of the club was pleased to receive the donation, “Thank you for offering to sponsor the Ladies team at Dewsbury Rangers FC. Dewsbury Rangers FC are a local Charter Standard Community Club with age groups that range from under 7’s to open age. This season the club are entering our 26th year of providing football to the local community and are looking forward to the season ahead”.

Established in the early 1890’s, Altofts AFC is the largest non-league club in Wakefield.

The club currently has 2-sides playing in the West Yorkshire Association Football League and this year is quite monumental for the club with going into their 125th season since formation!

Being a focal point of the local community and holding numerous social events throughout the year, the club have built a solid reputation for providing opportunities to individuals of all ages. The ground has great facilities, including a clubhouse, covered stand and pitch, all fully run by volunteers.

We have chosen to sponsor the club, rival to the team of our Managing Directors daughter, to contribute towards the upkeep of the facilities and provide a bit of healthy competition amongst the ladies.

Over the years, Ebsford Environmental have sponsored many organisations and charities, to help provide opportunities for people. It has been a great pleasure to give back to our community and local teams, watching them grow together with our support.

Our Ebsford employees joined forces with Avant Homes as part of their ‘Day to Make a Difference’ initiative back in June.

With the mission of supporting local communities and making a real difference to the lives of people who need it most, Avant Homes launched the scheme this year which was held on 12th June. We were honoured to take part in such a positive and scheme, working alongside fellow construction workers, sales advisors, apprentices and directors to give something back.

We had the pleasure of working with ‘Woolden Hill Primary School’ helping to improve their outdoor space. The schools pond underwent a full renovation and its surrounding area was planted with greenery to attract more wildlife for the children to enjoy. Also, a stunning flower bed in the shape of the school’s logo was created at the front of the school, welcoming parents, children and visitors.

Following the day, we received a letter of thanks from Headteacher of the school Sarah Sadler, making us extremely proud of the great team spirit we cherish here at Ebsford, “I wanted to say a huge thank you again for your support in your Avant 'Make a Difference' Day. Your team were wonderful and really worked hard from the moment they arrived to the last minute of the day (frantically planting flowers that had just arrived). From the first email, to the last car that left the site, your communication, professionalism and commitment to the project was second to none”.

Over 700 employees of Avant, as well as many suppliers and contractors took part in the initiative– some in person, others with materials or cash donations. With so many amazing schools, charities and local groups involved, it was a great day to be involved in and we were delighted we could offer our knowledge and expertise throughout the day.
