Supporting the community

It’s important to us, as an influential business in the South West, to work alongside our local community and to offer support wherever we can. At the moment, we’re committed to working with some great charities, but we also love to work with local groups and teams to help them achieve all they’re capable of. Below we’ve listed the organisations we are very happy to have recently developed relationships with:

Stoke Lane AFC Under 7s

During the 2013-14 season, Bristol and Avon Group became a proud sponsor of Stoke Lane AFC’s Under 7’s squad. We thoroughly enjoyed following the team’s success and will continue to sponsor the side during the 2014-15 season.

“I would like to thank Bristol and Avon once again for their kind and generous support of our U7’s football team last season. The children were so grateful for the opportunities that the sponsorship afforded us, from the training kit we acquired to the experience day at Bristol City, and from the wet weather training facilities to the new jackets with your logo on the back, the sponsorship and support that Bristol & Avon provided had a direct and positive impact upon these children’s journey into sport.”
Neil Dix – Stoke Lane U7’s Coaching Team

 

Synwell Amateur Boxing Club

Bristol & Avon has been a keen supporter and enthusiastic sponsor of the club based in Wotton Under Edge, Gloucestershire for over 20 years. Company Director, Aidan Berkely has been involved with Synwell since starting as an 11yr old Junior and later, as a senior boxer.

“The support from Bristol & Avon has been constant and deeply appreciated by club members, supplying much needed gym equipment and clothing. The purchase of a mini bus was a major factor, enabling the boxers to travel countrywide to compete. With the support of Bristol & Avon, the club is now thriving, ensuring it’s future and that of the local youth who benefit in the physical and mental discipline required to participate in the sport”
Malcolm Knight – Synwell ABC Coach
