We provide sponsorship support to a range of local community events and activities.
Bringing local residents together gives us an opportunity to connect with our nearest neighbours. We're involved with local events and organisations such as:
High Street Live at The Crawley Festival
Crawley new town is celebrating 70 years with a week of community activities. We're the headline sponsor of High Street Live, a free afternoon of live music featuring up-and-coming musicians from the region.
Horley is our neighbouring town where many of our colleagues live and contribute to the running of our airport. The theme of this year's Horley Carnival, Wonders of the Sea, will be a colourful parade of floats and market stalls.
Mole Valley Arts Alive Festival
Arts Alive is Mole Valley's community arts festival. Lasting six weeks, it provides an opportunity for members of the local area to take part in music, dance, theatre and poetry events.
Gatwick Aviation Museum
The Gatwick Aviation Museum is a unique collection of British aircraft and engines from the First World War to the 1970's. Packed full of history, the aviation museum gives an up close experience to history.
Crawley Community Awards
We were proud to sponsor the Crawley Community Awards, recognising people who have helped the Crawley community. With more than 350 nominations for the 16 award categories, the 2017 awards were a huge success.
We encourage all our staff to get involved in the local community offering their skills and time. Some use their expertise in areas like finance and marketing to give advice to local charities and organisations, others are governors of local schools and team building days are encouraged to be taken volunteering in the local community. All staff are able to take two days per year to spend doing voluntary work of their choice.
