Amey, who provide highways maintenance services across Hampshire on behalf of Hampshire County Council , has supported Fair Oak youth cricket club by providing  new equipment for the team. 

Amey’s support of the team was suggested by employee Ian Struckman  whose son Daniel plays for the team. Amey apprentice and keen cricketer Ben Kissane joined David Fawcett from Amey to hand over the new equipment, join in a training session and explain the work Amey does across the UK.

Andy Eley , from Fair Oak cricket club said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the equipment generously donated by Amey. It is fantastic that the business community is able to support youth sport in this way. Hopefully the equipment will help the team hone and develop their cricket skills in the coming years”.

Amey apprentice Ben Kissane added “It was great to meet the team and take part in a training session with the new equipment. I was certainly very impressed with the team’s talent and enthusiasm”

Paul Anderson, Account Director for Amey, commented: “We are delighted to support Fair Oak cricket club. They are a great community club and this links with our commitment to support community and social value initiatives across the UK. We wish the team all the best for the current season.” 

Over the past year, Amey has entered into several partnerships across Hampshire and surrounding counties that have benefitted young people, through work experience placements, recruitment of apprentices, and school and college events. Amey’s work with young people in Hampshire reflects Amey’s corporate values. Every Amey employee is also entitled to an annual paid Community Involvement Day to dedicate to local voluntary work.
