East Grinstead’s Keisen Judo club has received a major lift after receiving over £6,000 of sponsorship from a local business.
East Grinstead-based G & G Vitamins, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of vitamin and mineral products, is sponsoring the community judo club. G & G Vitamins Public Relations Manager Nancy Grier said: “We are very pleased to be able to support Keisen. G & G has always been a great supporter of causes both in the UK and overseas and we felt it was very important to put something into our own local community. We had been looking for a local project to support and when we found Keisen Judo we knew they were the right choice”
Keisen Judo is a British Judo Association club, run by a group of local volunteers, providing classes for the whole community. Club coach Tim Draper comments: “It is a difficult balance to run a voluntary club that provides the highest standards of coaching but remains accessible to everyone. Our new sponsors, G & G, will be providing support for our coaches and players; they will also be providing new equipment and team kits. I think it is fantastic in these times of austerity that a local business is prepared to do something that genuinely benefits the local community.”
