Optimising IT Sponsorships
At Optimising IT, we like to think of ourselves as much more than a bunch of geeks (one of us even had a girlfriend at school). Yes, we have the know-how to fix your networks and Wi-Fi, 3CX phone systems, onsite IT or even your back end. Yes, we offer a superb service to all our customers, whether that be the supply of managed IT services, cloud services, cyber security, the maintenance of your hardware or our many packages for all. Yes, we are B Corp Certified, committed to customer loyalty, employee satisfaction, innovation and market leadership but we are not here to talk about that either… though we really enjoy doing so.
We want to talk about supporting others and doing our bit. They say charity begins at home, and at Optimising IT, we like to think this means the local community. We are currently proud sponsors of various local sports teams and academies and are always looking for other causes we can get involved in.
We even sponsor individuals trying to reach for the stars like Alex Matthews of Gloucester Hartpury WRFC. Read more about our sponsorship below to see if you think we would be a good partner for you.
A little more about our sponsorships
Below are some groups and causes we are proud to call sponsorship partners.
The team with former England U-21 international Curtis Davies, and previously managed by Steve Cotterill, Martin ‘Mad Dog’ Allen and FA Cup winner Bobby Gould currently ply their trade in League One, and we are proud sponsors of one of their stands.
The Tigers are a superbly run rugby club that installs the core values of the game in all players from their cubs (U-4s) to their veterans and everyone in between. We are very proud to be a platinum sponsor of the club, with pitch-side signage, training uniforms, coaches and balls. We also sponsor both the ladies and men's teams.
Some big names have adorned the red and white stripes, including formal Arsenal top scorer, Cliff Bastin, former England winger, Lee Sharpe and current Premier League striker, Ollie Watkins. The League One team is supported by big names such as Noel Edmonds, Adrian Edmondson, Chris Martin and even the crew of HMS Defender. They are also supported by Optimising IT, as we sponsor a stand here as well.
Judged by Ofsted themselves to be a very inclusive school with leaders who have a passion and commitment to the community they serve. The school has a focus on Christian values and students often demonstrate this by being active members of the community. Ofsted stated their pupils are polite and courteous, which is why we knew they were an ideal sponsorship partner for us.
Alex Matthews – Gloucester Hartpury WRFC
Alex is an international loose forward who has played for England’s ‘Red Roses’ 40 times since debuting in 2011 and has scored 40 points for her country. She holds a bronze medal from the 2018 Commonwealth Games and plays her club rugby for Gloucester Hartpury, where we are her biggest fans and sponsor.
We are always interested in hearing from local groups, teams or individuals looking for sponsorship partners to help them achieve their goals and endeavour to do all we can to support suitable causes. We see the value in local people helping local people and believe together we can be all we can.
