Helping colleagues start something new

People News 09.11.18

Our Employee Benefit Trust (EBT) has helped one of our Abel & Cole colleagues start a netball team in the village where she lives, inspiring other Abel & Colers to join in too.

The team, Carshalton Netball Club, was established in June this year by Abel & Cole’s Mairéad Agnew, and a sports award from our EBT paid for bibs, balls and even a first aid kit. Mairéad has since welcomed Abel & Colers Ali and Amy to the team. The club has more of a focus on fun and exercise rather than competing and brings around 20 players together each week.

Mairéad said: “We’re all incredibly appreciative of the EBT’s support, some of my teammates couldn’t believe that a business would go that far to help its employees. I have no doubt that the funding has supported our success in getting us up and running so quickly. I just love the community group that this has created both in my village and here at Abel & Cole.”
