In addition to our local sponsorships, we also partner in a range of events and activities that align with our values and have a wider, regional participation.
Regional events provide us with opportunities to connect with more communities and play a positive role across a wider area. Here are just some of the regional events and organisations we're supporting this year:
This year, we were proud headline sponsors of the Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens Mini Mile Races. One of the largest youth races across the UK, they gave 7-19 year olds a chance to take part in the marathon weekend. Our sponsorship meant there was no entry fee, but we invited those taking part to make an optional donation to race sponsor and our national charity partner, Cancer Research UK.
SERV Sussex is a charity that provides night time transportation of blood, blood products and other urgent medical items for NHS Hospitals across Sussex. The service is provided free of charge to the NHS overnight via a committed team of volunteer riders and drivers often using their own vehicles. We have committed to a five-year sponsorship of SERV Sussex.
We’re proud sponsors of the first Superhero Tri, taking place on 19 August at Dorney Lake, Buckinghamshire. The UK’s only disability sports series, the Superhero Tri is a uniquely designed triathlon – swim, bike, and push/run – where participants can do as little or as much as they would like. We’re not only sponsoring the event, we’re taking part too. Team Gatwick will be captained by Paralympic tennis gold medallist Gordon Reed, who will be joined by members of Gatwick staff.
South and South East in Bloom
The South and South East in Bloom campaign is the largest horticultural campaign in the region involving 100’s of communities each year. Participating communities create lasting improvements to their local environment for the benefit of those that live, work and visit. We are proud to be involved in helping communities improve their local environments and are headline sponsor.
