On Friday the 8th Bennelong Energy Services hosted the first Benne long NRL Schools to Work touch football cup. 

In a day where a host of ex and current NRLstars came to support the NRL Schools to Work Corporate function with a little bit of touch footy in the mix. 

Cliff Lyons Bennelong team took out the touch football honours on the day with Steve Menzies Goolagong team coming in runners up. The luncheon had guest speakers such as Wendell Sailor ex Australian dual International, Brian Kelly from the Manly Sea Eagles, Shaun Humphries from the NRL Schools to Work program, Chris Bonney from Cushman Wakefield, Rebekah Williams from Australia Post and Senior Constable Angela Cook from the PCYC. 

The NRL, Hutchison Builders, Cushman Wakefield along with Bennelong Energy Services were the main sponsors of what was a great event to showcase the young men and women from the NRL Schools to Work program. These young people had either graduated from their HSC, or were currently looking, or had started an apprenticeship.

BES donated a box to the cricket to auction with all proceeds going to the PCYC where Property Link out bid everyone to win the prize. Also a shirt with all of the NRL stars was donated for the same cause in where Mac Ismail out bid everyone to take the signed shirt home. In all, Bennelong with the help of Property Link and Mac raised $4,000.00 back to the PCYC. 

One of many highlights was the speeches of two of our young apprentices Prue and Lucas. It was inspiring to hear two of our young Indigenous staff get up and talk in front of ninety people recounting their journey to where they are today with BES. 

On behalf of everyone involved, BES are grateful for your support of what was a successful and uplifting day. We hope to make this event bigger and better next year.
