EDF Hinkley Point Charity Rugby Match

20 Apr

The NNB (Nuclear New Build) Barbarians made up of EDF Energy staff took on HPC (Hinkley Point C) Tier 1 Tigers comprised of contract partners including Groundforce, Kier BAM & Costain.
The dismal weather on the night didn’t dampen spirits as both teams fought hard to a 5 apiece score line at half time after which the HPC Tigers proved too much for the Barbarians, and claimed a 31-10 win over the side.
Over 300 spectators showed up to Bridgwater & Albion RFC on the night to raise £2,500 which was matched by EDF, Bylor & Kier BAM to hit the £10,000+ total.

Bryan who coached the HPC Tigers side and helped organise the event, said;

The boys were absolutely buzzing after it. It was absolutely fantastic to be a part of it and the atmosphere afterwards was fantastic, with the old fashioned rugby club vibe of singing and celebrating with the opposition. I can’t wait for next year.

Hinkley Point C is a 10 year project in Somerset, constructing the UK’s first nuclear power plant in a generation. It is expected to create 25,000 employment opportunities with over 5,600 people working on site during its core construction.   

Congratulations to Bryan for the win and to everyone else involved for raising the money for such a great cause!
