BJB Lift Trucks hot shots on target

BJB Lift Trucks staff showed off their shooting skills at a recent activity day held for learners from their funded training division, Train2Work. The event, held at The Linden Homes Club, was kindly facilitated by a brilliant team from the Get Hooked on Positive Activities (GHoPA) charity. Groups of five were able to participate in laser clay pigeon shooting and archery, all under the careful supervision of the trained GHoPA team. The laser clay shooting was won by BJB director, Phil “Quick Draw McGraw” Flowers, closely followed by head of marketing, Nikki “Annie Oakley” Hale.

A large number of learners from Train2Work turned up to try their hand at the activities, with some proving quite talented. Good weather prevailed and everybody was able to have several attempts at the activities presented by GHoPA. After speaking with the GHoPA team, led by managing director Mark Fenty, some of the learners expressed an interest in volunteering for the Grimsby-based charity as they felt it would enhance their CV’s and future job prospects.

Firemen - ResizedThe contestants were surprised by an impromptu visit from members of Humberside Fire Brigade who were looking to promote their annual Fireman’s Fete. Following an invitation from BJB Lift Trucks director, Phil Flowers, they couldn’t resist having a go at the laser clay shooting which prompted much rivalry among the fire fighters. Some of the BJB Lift Trucks ladies also took the opportunity to have their picture taken with the firemen!
