McGee wins Corporate Partner of the Year at Dallaglio Awards

McGee has won Corporate Partner of the Year Award 2018 at the Dallaglio RugbyWorks 4th annual awards.

Hosted by Macquarie Group on 25th of June, the truly inspirational awards ceremony not only celebrated the achievements of the amazing young people in the RugbyWorks Programme but also recognised those who had shown great commitment, hard work and willingness to help and support the charity.

McGee has had the pleasure of supporting Dallaglio RugbyWorks over the past five years. From organising behind-the-scenes tours of their construction sites, providing information workshops about the exciting career paths that the construction industry has to offer to participating in the 2018 Dallaglio Cycle Slam to raise more than £17,000 for the charity – The Corporate Partner of the Year Award is in recognition of these efforts and the commitment and enthusiasm of all McGee staff who continue to support the charity and its RugbyWorks young people.

Marc Byrne, Head of Social Responsibility, said:

“Of all the industry awards that McGee has received in 2018, none has given us greater pleasure than to be awarded the Dallaglio RugbyWorks Corporate Partner of the Year 2018.

“From the herculean fundraising cycling efforts of Michael McGee to all the site teams that are involved with our Construction Employability Days, we genuinely get a buzz from helping Dallaglio’s young people on the road to achieving their true potential.

“The McGee staff who are involved with RugbyWorks get so much from working with the Dallaglio team and young people.  It is an ideal partnership and the Construction industry is an excellent choice for a career for many of the young people we meet.

“We at McGee are proud to be part of that journey with Dallaglio RugbyWorks and really appreciate the recognition for our efforts that this award brings.”

Dallaglio RugbyWorks was founded by Lawrence Dallaglio OBE, former England Rugby, and Wasps Captain. It’s an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which the charity aims to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.
