Community award for British Steel employee

A British Steel engineer who spends his spare time supporting the development of World Championship martial artists has become our latest Community Champion award winner.

Andy Bazley plays a vital role in the co-ordination of the Twin Tigers Martial Arts organisation in Scunthorpe which has recently had six of its members crowned World Champions at the World Boxing Championships.

The sheeting engineer started volunteering with the group as Parent Liaison Officer three years ago, helping to co-ordinate activities undertaken by its younger members and raising vital funds to support the ongoing needs of the group.

“No matter how the kids do in class or competition, seeing the constant improvement makes me so proud,” said Andy, who recently received one of our £200 Community Champion awards which recognise employees who volunteer in the communities in which we operate.

“Not everyone is in a position to fund individual equipment, additional uniforms and competition fees so it’s a pleasure to be able to help as many as we can with British Steel’s contribution and strengthen our offering to the next generation of martial artists.”
