The team at our Briggs & Forrester Warrington office have been ‘actively’ fundraising in support of a very good friend, Andrew Mason, who was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. 

Andrew has spent the last 28 years fundraising for various charities, so they were eager to help Andrew with his own very worthy cause. They completed a 258 mile run in 24 hours, which is the distance from the B&F Daresby office to the B&F Northampton Head office…and back!!

Briggs and Forrester Apprenticeship Programme

Curtis Castledine is an Assistant Mechanical Design Engineer and began his career three years ago with Briggs and Forrester via the company’s apprenticeship programme.

“I’d always enjoyed and been interested in maths, physics and design technology. However apprenticeships were not something that was highlighted to me at school; students were encouraged to go to university.  The opportunity to be able to learn a trade whilst earning a living really appealed to me.
