Newport businesses rally to support Team Isle of Wight

May 1st, 2019 by

Team Isle of Wight has been boosted by a £740 donation from Newport Business Association (NBA).

The team will travel to Gibraltar in July for the 2019 Island Games and the cash from NBA will help towards their travel and accommodation costs.

Members of the organisation gave donations which the association match funded.

Jo Randall, of Newport’s Love Running shop, said: “Newport Business Association is proud to support the 2019 Island Games, and wishes every member of Team Isle of Wight a most enjoyable, exhilarating and successful event.”

The donation followed a meeting between business association members and the Isle of Wight’s Island Games chairman, Martin Goodall, last summer.

Martin said: “We are really grateful to Newport Business Association for the donation.

“Competing in the Island Games is the pinnacle for many of our athletes - it’s like a mini  Olympics and a very special event to be involved in.

“We would hate for anyone who has been selected on merit to miss out over money, so any financial support we receive makes a huge difference.”


Kit sponsor for athletics squad

February 18th, 2019 by

TEAM Isle of Wight’s biggest Island Games athletics squad since 2011 has been kitted out for this year’s event, thanks to a new sponsor.

The squad will head to Gibraltar in July sporting a new bespoke kit, courtesy of Churcher’s Solicitors, Ryde.

Athletics manager Nick Groocock said: “We’re taking experienced athletes who will be hoping to bring back a haul of medals, as well as some young but talented athletes who we have high hopes for the future.

“As ever, the cost of competing at the Games is always challenging so the sponsorship from Churcher’s has helped enormously."

Churcher’s managing partner Ian Robinson added: “We are proud to support the athletics team in the upcoming Island Games.

“We wish them the best of luck in competing and look forward to following their progress.”

The 2019 Island Games runs between 6 and 12 July.
