How much Granite Paving do you think you could lay in one hour?
Two Vastint UK employees' bravado recently got the better of them and they found themselves accepting a challenge to go head-to-head with John F Hunt Remediation's Tom Brankley and Daire Cantwell in trying to lay the most paving slabs in an hour... for a good cause of course!
It all comes down to a casual discussion about the production rates of laying granite paving! The result: The Granite Challenge!
The event will be taking place outside:
Print House Bar & Kitchen,
Sugar House Island
On Friday 19 July at 3.00pm
Michael Cronin, our Property Manager and Richard Lam, our Construction Manager will be taking on the expert laying team Tom Brankley and Daire Cantwell.
So what will they win? Well, pride mostly and knowing that their fun and games will give to a good cause: Meningitis Now
Meningitis Now was adopted by John F Hunt Group as one of their main charities following the tragic death of Managing Director Ben Williams' 8 year old son, Harry. Here's his story:
"As some of you may know, my 8 year son, Harry, died suddenly after contracting meningitis. Prior to this I knew very little about the illness.
I was a parent who thought that meningitis immunisations protected against all strains and that ‘it could never happen to one of mine.’ Needless to say I’ve become a bit of an unwilling expert in meningitis and feel that a little bit of fundraising effort from me could help prevent someone else going through the same experience.”
The team are hoping to raise a whopping £5,000 on the day with their antics!
