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.

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.

The Ebsford family have come together to enjoy coffee, cake and most importantly raise money for MacMillan. The team have been mixing, baking (and some burning) their own masterpieces. There may have been a few sneaky bought cakes in there too but at the end of the day it’s all about doing our bit and earning some cash for an amazing charity! 

A Morning of Coffee and Cake for Macmillan A Morning of Coffee and Cake for Macmillan

We enjoyed an array of goodies from Paige’s Chocolate Orange cheesecake to Debra’s Raisin Scones but there were many great efforts and certainly no soggy bottoms…

We raised a grand total of £322. A big thanks to our Office Manager Jemma Scott for arranging the whole thing and to everyone that contributed, no doubt our waistlines may have grown a tad but its all for a good cause!

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, with an incredible £26.9 million raised just last year alone. 1 in 2 of us face cancer at some point in our lives and MacMillan do all they can to provide support and help people continue to live life to its fullest.
