Thank you to Rosconn Group!
Stratford-based Rosconn Group are the headline sponsor for the Stratford Raft Race, taking place on 24thJuly, and we are the main beneficiary for this year!
The company’s £1000 sponsorship support will pay for the safety teams on hand on the day to look after the competitors – and to help them negotiate the two weirs along the 7.5-mile route.
We are incredibly grateful to them for supporting us, Daniel O’Donnell, The Rosconn Group Managing Director, said: “Working with local communities is very much at the heart of what we do and we are committed to supporting that community in every way we can. We feel very honoured to be the headline sponsor for this year’s Raft Race, supporting the Lions and Heart of England Mencap - a charity we have formed a very strong link with. They do such great work with a broad spectrum of individuals and we applaud that dedication. Our aim is to work closely with such organisations as they make such a difference to the lives of vulnerable people who need some support.”
Many thanks to Hayne, a local company who provide Financial Consolidation Solutions to organisations throughout the UK, who have supported us with £1000 funding over the past two years. The money has been used to give the allotments at Eastwell House in Stratford, a new lease of life, encouraging our customers to get outdoors and grow their own food, leading to a healthier life!
Thank you to our friends at Vodafone who have generously completed two volunteering days with us over the past year. One at Valley Road, and one at Fordsfield, both centres based in Leamington, where they did amazing work transforming the gardens for both. It’s wonderful for our customers to have an outdoor space they can use and enjoy. Thank you team Vodafone!
It’s not easy building a raft but DCS group have stepped in to help. Our Mencap teams used their pallets and large redundant plastic containers for floats, ensuring they make it along the 7.5-mile journey without sinking! Huge thanks to DCS Group.
