Shaun McIntosh MICC

We are proud and delighted to announce that Shaun McIntosh has qualified for the 2019 Bowls World Championship!

Shaun is sponsored  by MICC and is one of our employees based in our Washington, Tyne & Wear, Mineral Insulated Cable factory HQ. After many years of hard work and great National success he has been able to qualify for the World Championships via becoming a member of the Professional Bowls Association (PBA).

We spoke to Shaun about his journey to the top of his sport and here’s what he had to say;

I had my first game of bowls when I was seven years old, I used to go along and watch my father regularly played to a high standard – I think this is where my love of the game came from.

After many hard years of practice I started to win junior event titles regularly, this caught the eye of the selection committee for the full men’s team at my local club Hebburn Bowls Association, at the age of 15 I won the men’s singles championship becoming the youngest in the clubs history to do so, after this win I received my first Durham County cap, I remained in the team for that season which ended with us being National Title Champions – since then I have went on to win four English Titles in total.

At the age of 18 I had my first England Under 25’s trial, on this occasion I did not make the team.

2019 has been my biggest season yet, securing sponsorship from MICC Ltd has given me the platform to join the Professional Bowls Association (PBA) which gave me the opportunity to qualify for the 2019 World Championships, after eleven hours on the green myself and my pairs partner qualified for the 2019 World Championships which will take place at Potters Hotel Norfolk in early 2019 – which is also a live televised event.

I look forward to 2019 and hope to achieve all my title goals”

We all wish Shaun the best of luck. For more details on the event please visit;

Daniel’s Mini Great North Run

Can you give little for a very good cause?

Please help Daniel raise money for Isabella and people like her with Williams Syndrome via his Mini Great North Run! https://zurl.co/KnQ8

Here is Daniel explaining why this is important to him in his own words.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.


My name is Daniel, I am 5 years old and I am going to be running with my mammy (if she can keep up) in this year’s Mini Great North Run on the 8th September.

I am raising money and awareness for the Williams Syndrome Foundation UK.

Williams Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder  that occurs randomly
and affects around one in 18,000 people in the UK. It is non-hereditary
and causes distinctive facial characteristics and a wide range of learning difficulties. Infants often have delayed development and can develop physical and mental health problems, including anxiety and depression in  later life. All WS people tend to be talkative and excessively friendly towards adults.

My beautiful cousin Isabella will be 8 this October. Almost 3 years ago, in December 2015, she was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome.

Since then, my very brave Auntie Emma and Uncle Philip have been doing lots to raise awareness of William’s Syndrome and raising money for the Foundation, who have got them through some very difficult times in the last 3 years.

Now it’s my turn to help, I would love it and would be very grateful if you could donate as little or as much as you can to help raise funds for WSF UK as they are a charity very very close to our family’s heart.
