06 June 2018: CarillionAmey staff take on the Two Ball Banger rally to raise money for SSAFA

Matthew Lee, our Project Manager in Scotland, has registered to complete the 2018 Two Ball Banger Rally, in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. Matthew will be teaming up with his brother in law, Gavin, and long-term friend, Owen, to embark on the four day event which will start in St. Omer, France and end in Barcelona, Spain in July this year.

Between them they have a combined Service history extending nearly 40 years. Matthew retired from the Army after 22 years’ service in 2017 and now works in our Housing contract, whilst his brother-in-law, Gavin, has completed 13 years’ service with the Royal Navy and is now part of the Royal Navy Outreach Team based out of MOD Caledonia in Rosyth. Owen, the self-proclaimed petrol head of the team, works in IT, marketing and communications for Sky Broadcasting.

The route will see them crossing the Alps and the famous Stevilo Pass as well as the Grand Prix circuit in Monaco before finishing by the coast in the beautiful city of Barcelona. Whilst they are using their own money to finance the rally, with their history and current ties to the Armed Forces they have decided to give something back.

We are extremely excited that they have chosen to support our charity partner, SSAFA, and they have purchased their ‘banger’ for £300. The team need all the support they can get and if you’d like to make a donation you can visit their secure online fundraising page here.

They are also looking for corporate sponsorship and for £100 they will place company logos on their ‘banger’ and share on social media. If you have contractors on your site that might be interested in getting involved, please let us know.
