Team Stan riding for charity

TMAT has a host of colleagues that love taking on a challenge and raising money for charity.

On Sunday 2nd September 2012 our Financial Controller Laura Bawden and Steve Smith our Engineering & Site Services Manager will be taking part in the Manchester 100 bike ride. The bike ride is a huge 100 miles long and it starts and finishes at Wythenshaw Park in Manchester.

Laura and Steve will be riding as part of ‘Team Stan’ alongside other family and friends in memory of Laura’s brother and Grandad who both died earlier this year.

Laura and Steve have chosen to ride for The British Heart Foundation and Ashgate Hospice. Let’s support them and their team mates who are raising money for two very worthy causes.

TMAT wishes them the very best.


A headline that sounds worthy of a gold medal! TMAT would like to applaud Rob Bates on his recent exam success.

Rob is currently working towards becoming CIMA qualified (Chartered Institute of Management Accounts) while in full-time employment here at TMAT. He recently found out that he has passed some of the CIMA exams which were particularly gruelling given the time scale between each paper.

Sitting three exams over three days was a challenge but Rob had been studying for them since February taking weekend classes and dedicating his evenings after work.

Rob started working in accounts straight after school, became AAT qualified and then commenced working towards the CIMA qualification. He has already passed the Managerial level of the qualification but aiming high Rob is now on target to becoming a qualified Management Accountant.

Now in the final stages of the course, TMAT would like to wish him the very best of luck for his final exam at the end of this month.
