MMS 2018 Xmas Gala

Last year saw a change to MMS’s Xmas party celebrations with around 120 staff in attendance, MMS celebrated the Xmas festivities at Birmingham’s NEC’s Wonderland. With acrobatics, fair ground rides, dancing and even a midnight breakfast, but most of all great company, a fabulous evening was had by all.

Unfortunately, due to various people being too busy busting out their moves on the dance floor, racing it out on the dodgems or spinning themselves silly on the waltzers, this years group photo was smaller than we had anticipated however the smiles all around are really what make it count!

We hope that everyone had a fantastic Xmas and New Year with their loved ones and we hope that 2019 is a prosperous one for all.

Sapper Vs Gunners Charity Event raises £50,000 for Autism Research Trust and the Felix fund.

On the 6th July 2016 MMS were delighted to be invited to attend the ‘Sappers V Gunners’ Army charity boxing event organised by the 101 (City of London) Engineer Regiment (Explosive Ordnance Disposal).

The event, that took place at Stamford Bridge, saw 400 guests entertained with 9 bouts of boxing alongside a 4 course meal and auction. The event was a huge success and raised a staggering £50,000 which beat their 2015 total of just over £41,000.

A special event organised to present the charities with the monies at Carver Barracks took place in February 2017 where Lieutenant Colonel Hawkins and Honorary Colonal Jools Holland, who is also a patron of the Autism Research Trust, were able to present each Charity with a staggering £25,000.

On the 18th September 2016 our very own Callum Thomas completed the Iron Man Challenge in a time of just 12:34:56, a personal best. Crazily, Callum does the Iron Man Challenge each year just for fun! The challenge is a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 mile run.

Callum TUPE transferred into MMS on the 1st April as an Electrical engineer and has since moved up to site supervisor managing a very busy and high profile site.
