We are supporting JudoScotland as headline sponsor for 2014/15. The sponsorship deal, which started in May, will support the team as it prepares for the Senior European Championships in Glasgow next April. This is another positive step for the team that delivered a total of 13 medals overall, including six gold, at this year’s Commonwealth Games.
George Kerr Junior Judo Club in Stornoway
We are working with judo legend George Kerr CBE to help fund the George Kerr Junior Judo Club in Stornoway. Over five years ago the club was formed to introduce young people in the area to the Japanese martial art. The club has more than 100 members and since its inception over 500 local children have taken part in judo sessions organised at their schools to promote healthy eating and exercise.
Cowal Highland Gathering
We were proud to be the headline sponsor at this year’s Cowal Highland Gathering, commonly known as the world’s most spectacular highland games. As an active member of the communities in which we operate we recognise the importance of the Cowal Gathering as an important event in the Dunoon community calendar. We were delighted to be on hand throughout the weekend to present prizes to the winners of the heavy athletics and the Solo Piping competition and the Burgh Cup.
The Scottish Salmon Company have nominated the Sandpiper Trust as its chosen charity for fundraising events and activities throughout 2013.
The Sandpiper Trust aims to provide Scotland’s doctors and nurses with appropriate emergency medical equipment, known as the Sandpiper Bag. The Sandpiper Bag enables lifesaving “pre-hospital” procedures to be carried out during that critical period, known as the “Golden Hour”, where, in more remote and rural parts of Scotland, an ambulance may be several hours away.
These procedures can be the difference between life and death. We are very proud to support the Trust.
