Through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund, Bouygues Energies & Services have been able to sponsor athlete, Ross Sinclair, to represent Team GB at the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi next month.
Ross was selected to represent GB as part of the Men’s Football Squad, following his success at national trials in February 2018. However, the GB Special Olympics Team is not government funded, so they rely heavily on fundraising and donations. Which is how Bouygues Energies & Services came to be involved!
