Pound Gates supports future sports stars

Dec 30, 2015
A capacity audience of 240 people descended on Wherstead Park near Ipswich, Suffolk on 24 September for the Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club event to raise money for SportsAid, the national charity for rising stars of British sport.

Insurance specialist, Pound Gates, along with several other local businesses, sponsored the event which raises vital funding to help young sportsmen and women from the Suffolk overcome the financial challenges they face as they bid to become Britain’s next generation of Olympians and Paralympians.

Rob Thacker from Pound Gates Chartered Insurance Brokers, speaking on behalf of the seven founding businesses behind the Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club said, “We are delighted how the Ipswich business community has really taken the Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club to their hearts and turned out in such big numbers.”

The Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club raises money by hosting two business lunches each year. Each lunch will be open to any local business and will provide good sporting speakers, a great atmosphere and a wonderful networking opportunity. The next lunch event will take place on Friday 26th February 2016 at Wherstead Park when one of the UK’s best known and most popular sportswomen, Sharron Davies MBE, will be guest of honour.
