All Steels Trading’s Golf Day 2017

May 8, 2017

All Steels Trading would like to thank everyone who attended our recent golf day/dinner at Rudding Park Golf Club & Hotel in Harrogate and helped to make the day/evening go with a truly fantastic swing!

It’s fair to say that the emphasis for the biennial All Steels Trading invitation golf day/dinner will always be on having fun but coupled of course with a slight edge of healthy competition! All teams/players were equally blessed with glorious sunshine during their round of golf but the accompanying afternoon wind made for difficult conditions on Rudding Park’s Hawtree Course for all of the golfers.

Despite all of the challenges presented some pretty impressive golfing action was most definitely seen and that included some very promising shots made by participating members of All Steels Trading’s sales office. It’s good to know that their numerous professional golf lessons taken in preparation for the 2017 AST golfing event were not all in vain!

After the final putt was taken it was already time for the players to head straight over to Rudding Park Hotel post a quick change of attire for the evening dinner. The much anticipated prize giving ceremony certainly rounded off the golf day/dinner very nicely leaving our guests and All Steels Trading’s colleagues all looking forward to the next classic AST golf day/dinner!

Here are the 2017 AST golfing prize results:
Team Winner
First Place – Andrew Killingbeck, Adam Glenn, Neil Doherty & Richard Hewitt
Team Winner 1
Second Place – Matt Ford, Mark Aldridge & Dave Pottinger
Third Place – Laurence McDougall, Steve Unwin, Andy Peaty & John Panton

Individual Winner – Men
First Place – John Thompson – 46 points
Second Place – Matt Ford – 39 points
Third Place – Richard Hewitt – 38 points

Individual Winner – Women

Second Place – Jules Thompson – 34 points
Third Place – Julia Hesketh – 23 points

A special thanks goes to All Steels Trading guest Neil Turner who kindly gifted “The Turner Trophy” during the prize giving ceremony in nostalgic celebration of achieving his own spectacular hole in one at the 2015 AST golf day.

Proud to be a Patron of The Prince’s Trust

April 17, 2017

Proud to be a Patron 1

All Steels Trading is very pleased to announce that we have become a Patron of The Prince’s Trust.

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. It supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.

The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped 825,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day.

Independent research has found that The Prince’s Trust has in fact returned £1.4 billion in value to society through its work with disadvantaged young people over the last 10 years alone. The calculation takes into account the return on investment of getting young people off benefits, reducing offending and re-offending, and helping young people to achieve at school.

Laurence McDougall, MD of All Steels Trading, comments: “We are proud to be a Patron of this incredibly worthwhile charity. The help The Prince’s Trust provides includes training, personal development, business start-up support, mentoring and advice. It is ingenious in the way that it has changed young people’s lives, not through condescension and free hand-outs, but by giving them the means to help themselves. As part of our partnership commitment members of the All Steels Trading Team will take part in various fundraising events and work directly with young people on voluntary programmes to further support The Prince’s Trust”.

Oxfam Trailwalker UK – 23 & 24 July 2016

Oxfam Trailwalker UK – 23 & 24 July 2016

July 27, 2016

Deciding to participate in an event described as “the ultimate physical and mental challenge” was, well, slightly outside my comfort zone to say the least!

The Oxfam Trailwalker involves a team of 4 people walking 100km in less than 30 hours. The route starts just north of Portsmouth, snakes across the South Downs and finishes in Brighton. It has 6,600 feet of ascent which includes three very memorable hills! There are plenty of challenge events out there that you can do on your own but Trailwalker is not one of them. The whole point is to get the whole team round. We certainly discovered en route who was strong uphill, who was good at navigation, what motivated each of us and where our individual weak points were (my right knee!).  However, I am really proud to say that The All Steels Trading team hobbled in together completing the brutal continuous trek in 28 hours and 43 minutes. There’s no doubt that we couldn’t have finished without each other’s support. What great team camaraderie and unswerving stamina displayed – hooray!!!

Gurkha Piper Finish Line

We crossed that finish line feeling exhausted but triumphant, and of course very grateful that we lead lives where a long trek like this can be treated as a challenge, rather than a necessity. At All Steels Trading we are still celebrating and recovering from our efforts! However, we wish to say thanks so much for all the support and generous sponsorship given by our business friends because together we raised in excess of £3000 for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust. For me, the Trailwalker Challenge had a bit of everything, ups and downs of all kinds. From an overall positive angle I will never forget it but I will also never, ever, do the Oxfam Trailwalker UK again!

Fellow Steel Aficionados Welcome!

April 5, 2016

IMAG0013

It’s certainly been an extremely busy past two days for the All Steels Trading team exhibiting at Tube & Wire 2016.  With three more hectic days of the trade fair still left to go perhaps the team will sensibly opt for an early night tonight rather than heading out into the bright lights of the Altstadt (Düsseldorf)!

So far it’s been really great for AST colleagues to catch up at the trade fair with so many old familiar AST business acquaintances but equally exciting to get the opportunity to network here with so many other previously unknown fellow steel aficionados!  So if you’re planning to visit Tube & Wire in the next couple of days please do drop by the AST exhibition booth; we’re conveniently located in Hall 04/H21 and where the drinks are on us!
