Giving back is at the heart of the British Engines Community Fund, established to provide funding to North East based charities and community groups in need of support to continue their good work.
Tyne Pressure Testing is one of eight businesses within the British Engines Group of companies based in the North East of England.
Each year, employees from across the group nominate causes that are close to their hearts, ensuring that the fund supports initiatives that truly matter to them. In the past year alone, the British Engines Group has donated over £11,000 through the Community Fund, benefitting a total of 19 groups across the North East.
Employees at Tyne Pressure Testing nominated two local causes to receive funding:
Paul Smith, CEO at Tyne Pressure Testing, nominated Durham Cestria to receive £350. This funding was used to purchase footballs and training goals.
Durham Cestria has had several players go on to play in the FA Women’s Super League and at international level, including Zoe Ness and Beth Hepple. Currently Durham Cestria plays in the FA Women’s National League Division One and have their sights set on the league trophy.
Debbie Gill, Accounts Payable Supervisor at British Engines, nominated her local karate club Byakko Karate while working at Tyne Pressure Testing.
Byakko Karate is a family run karate cub in Cramlington and members of the British Karate Association (BKA). The club received £500 to purchase three new rollable training mats.
Thank you to all our employees who nominated a cause, the group is delighted to have supported so many amazing community projects across the North East.
