Sporting Connections

In the last few months, Phoenix have been supported by many Cambridge based sporting endeavours. We love meeting new people and are always keen to have a go ourselves or by cheering along at the side lines.


Milton Football Club came to visit us recently to hand over a cheque for an amazing £750 from their charity match, the annual Mary Daniels Memorial Cup, where the Milton All Stars took on Girton United. Thank you to everyone who came down on the day or sent a donation, we are very grateful for the club’s support. The Phoenix family enjoyed the match as we are big football fans, one of our co-workers even had a go in goal, and we hope to continue our association over the coming months.


However, we have also dipped our toes in to the world of golf. Last year Bourn Golf Club made us their charity of the year, and this year, our wonderful supporters at COEL, recently held a charity golf day at Ely City Golf Club, which raised a staggering £3750.00 for Phoenix. We were delighted to go along and tell everyone about our history, our mission, all the people that make up our community, the products that we make and our commitment to sustainability. We are immensely grateful to everyone who so generously supported the day and made it such a wonderfully positive and inclusive occasion. Thanks to sponsors KRB, The Cambridge Building Society, The Salmon Bros, Wedd Joinery and Workstories

A special mention is also needed for Brewers Decorator Centres for their separate, generous donation and the hospitality team at Ely, who were so welcoming.


Phoenix are having a Open Day on July 23rd, we will be putting our sporting friends to the test, with both golf and football themed challenges please come and join us, all are welcome!
