The club are hugely grateful to all our sponsors for their interest in the club and their support of our activities. We hope that in all cases the association will prove to be a positive one for our sponsors, and that wherever possible these relationships will prove to be mutually advantageous in the longer term.
The University of Bedfordshire has provided £5,000 to support the Senior men’s and women’s track and field teams in 2013. This has included the provision of kit (vests and tracksuits) and contributions to a range of other expenses incurred in running the teams. This has already had a positive impact, and we very much hope that this relationship will prove to be mutually beneficial on an ongoing basis.
Abbey Corrugated, and its associated company Abbey Sheetfeeding, are a packaging and corrugated board specialist based at Blunham. They have very generously provided the full funding, amounting to almost £3,000, of ‘The Beast’, an athletic friendly strength and conditioning machine that will benefit, in particular, throwers and jumpers. ‘The Beast’ is currently in a temporary location near our storage facility behind the sports hall, but the stadium have agreed to provide a more permanent home for it very soon.
Scottsdale Consulting, a financial consultancy based in Milton Keynes, has entered into partnership with the Club to offer a range of financial services to anybody with connections to the Club. For any ‘product’ that anybody invests in as a result of introduction via the club, we will receive a percentage of the company’s commission. Full details have been circulated to all members and it now remains for those interested to take advantage of the free consultation offered by Scottsdale. There could be significant benefit to the Club if investments are pursued.
CMC Communications, is a Milton Keynes based communications company that is already linked with other well known sports clubs in the area including MK Dons. They have provided £500 (partly through another group company) to assist with costs associated with our Senior Men’s Road and Cross Country teams. We are also in ongoing discussions with them as to how best we might develop this relationship for the longer term.
Toymaster (an association of independent toy retailers) has also offered the sum of £250 towards the costs of running the senior men’s cross country and road team.
