In the Community

The importance of sport

The Champion Group have been main sponsors of Basingstoke Rugby Football Club for over 10 years.

We were drawn to this exemplary club not purely because it is local, but because it’s driven by a true desire to encourage activity within the community and particularly amongst young people.

Over 200 children are involved in the club’s youth teams, and the sport is increasingly attracting active participation amongst females.

Such an integrated approach brings people together for a positive purpose and serves to enhance the social infrastructure of the area, as well as keeping many local people fit and ready for action.

In a co-funding initiative with Sports Match, we have also helped create a three-year contract for a Community Development Officer; the post is managed by the Institute of Sports Sponsorship, through Sport England.

We’re extremely proud of everything the club has achieved and of our relationship with it.

The importance of caring

Many of our staff are actively involved in helping other charitable causes and we encourage and support their efforts.

The ascent of Kilimanjaro

In 2007, Lee Champion was part of a team which climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, via the Lemosho route.

A dedicated effort, hard work, exacting physical demands and a considerable amount of inspired fund-raising was rewarded by his raising £1800.00 for the NSPCC.

The Group has so far raised over £20,000 for various UK charities.
