Briggs of Burton are proud to celebrate Lynda Wheat’s contribution to the Burton Soup Kitchen

Lynda Wheat featured in the Burton Mail this week following her involvement at the New Baptist Church on Derby Street opposite the Briggs of Burton head office in Burton upon Trent.

Lynda dedicates every Thursday lunchtime to support the local soup kitchen with preparing, serving and most importantly engaging with the visitors, and has done so for the past 3 years. Lynda is an integral part of the Briggs team as PA to the MD and has worked at the Burton site for over 30 years. Her positive and warm personality is reflected through her work at the local church, which also includes shoe box collections at Christmas and raffle draws at Briggs, who are keen to support her charity work.

Lynda was interviewed by the Burton Mail sharing her experience:

“I have always wanted to do something like this and when I saw the signs outside the church, I asked my manager if I could support them. My lunch break is usually 45 minutes but the company allows me to have a longer lunch so I can help out. Briggs are really supportive of the soup kitchen – we recently had a raffle to raise money for it.  Everyone makes me feel so welcome and if I have to miss my Thursdays at the church I feel really disappointed.”

Briggs are proud to continue supporting Lynda in the future!

Briggs of Burton’s engineering team support STEM Inventor Day at Firfield Primary School in Derbyshire

Briggs of Burton’s engineering team recently supported a STEM Inventor Day at Firfield Primary School to celebrate British Science Week 2019.

Three of our team members; Parm Nanuwan, Thomas Barnett and Jessica Simmons led the day with several engaging STEM activities including Spaghetti Towers and Draw an Inventor. Proudly promoting engineering and helping the students to develop their creative skills.

Briggs team worked with over 350 students from 12 classes across Key Stage 1 and 2. The Briggs team felt the experience was extremely rewarding as they were able to share their passion for engineering.

 

Tom Barnett, Project Manager at Briggs Asia said, “It is the duty of our generation of engineers to inspire the next one, so taking part in the Inventor Day for British Science Week was a great way to promote STEM in schools and have fun at the same time!”

Briggs would like to thank Firfield Primary School for giving us the opportunity to visit. Finally, a big thank you to our talented team who spent their time in supporting the students and their development.
