Control room furniture supplier in charity rugby match

Winsted : 27 June, 2007  (Company News)
Winsted took a break from supplying furniture for control rooms to commemorate the Falklands War anniversary with a friendly rugby match to support Falklands veterans.
Harry Whale, Winsted's recently appointed General Manager, played in a charity rugby match on the 16th June to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Falklands War and managed to tear two hamstrings and acquire some broken ribs in the process.

"Like most 'friendly' rugby matches, this one was competitively fought, and perhaps fittingly ended in a draw 33- 33" said Harry. "We did however achieve our objective of commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Falklands War and at the same time raise money for the South Atlantic Medal Association."

The Association provides invaluable support for many of the 777 men were wounded in action during the Falklands War, many of whom struggle to lead a normal life, still suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.
Harry played as part of the Task Force team selected from units that fought in the conflict, and who were combined services players at the time. The opposing team, Penguins XV, comprised many well known names from the world of rugby. The match referee and his team of officials were all Falklands Veterans.

Major General Julian Thompson CB, OBE, the Commander of 3 Commando Brigade during the conflict, presented the Task Force Trophy to the winning team."It was a privilege to take parts an event that raised a large amount of money for such a worthwhile cause." added Harry.
