On the afternoon of the 30th of September 2022, 24 of WJ’s staff from our HR and finance; tendering and design; technical; monitoring; and operations departments, and our Senior Management team took to the roads of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire as part of a charity treasure hunt on behalf of our chosen charity YoungMinds.
On Saturday 23 July 2022 our MD Richard Fielden will be setting off to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats (approximately 1000 miles!) in just 10 days and is hoping to raise £10,000 for Young Minds Trust, a charity which works with children, young adults and their families to help to look after their mental health.
On the 2nd of July, WJ Groundwater’s Richard Fielden (Managing Director) cycled 300 miles with the Keep the Beat Cycling Team to raise money for the Leicester Royal Infirmary Heart Unit at Glenfield.
This year the cycle challenge was to complete a 300 mile long journey in 24 hours. The starting point was The Anchor Pub in Burbage at 7am (nr. Hinckley in Leicestershire) ending at Watergate Bay (just north of Newquay in Cornwall). The team were given a great send off.
So far 2016 has been a year of mixed fortune for WJ Groundwater-sponsored cycle squad Team Frankie’s. One of the biggest changes is the reduced racing calendar. However, the team continues to grow apace and nowadays it has a healthy mix of locals and ex-pats from across a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
As the Six Nations Championship commences, WJ Groundwater has gotten into the spirit of all things to do with the noblest of games, rugby.
WJ Groundwater has recently made a generous donation to the Ladies Under 13s team of Eton Manor Rugby Football Club (RFC) in east London. The money has enabled the team to purchase new rugby kit. It is very proud to support the development of the sport at grass roots level.
“It’s so very important for our team to turn up to matches looking like we really mean business – I tell all of our girls that looking the part is half the battle won and a great positive attitude builder,” said the Eaton Manor RFC’s team administrator.
