SA1 Solutions, a Swansea-based IT and communications firm, and its sister company, SA1 Telecoms, are continuing their sponsorship of a number of local sports teams and facilities as the companies pledge to promote healthy lifestyles in the community.
In line with the companies’ value of advocating healthy living and maintaining a positive wellbeing, SA1 Solutions and SA1 Telecoms are continuing to sponsor a range of local sporting groups. Its support of these groups is also one way in which the companies give back to the community.
Over the last two years, the companies have sponsored the team kit for Newton Athletic FC, an organisation that provides football and sports training to children in the area. Established in October 2017, Newton Athletic FC has over 100 children registered with the club, enabling them to play football with the encouragement of 12 FA Wales trained coaches. The club is very community focused and organises activities for the families of players and the community to enjoy, including BBQs, sponsored walks, beach football and quiz nights, in addition to weekly coaching sessions and matches.
SA1 Solutions and SA1 Telecoms have also sponsored a team at Langland Bay Golf Course and Briton Ferry Llansawel AFC. The sister companies also have a longstanding relationship with Swansea’s Liberty Stadium and frequently supports matches and events held at the venue through advertising.
In addition to supporting sports teams and therefore active lifestyles in the area, the companies are proactive in ensuring the health and wellbeing of its staff is held with high regard. The companies promote flexible working for its employees and free fresh fruit is also provided to staff to encourage healthy eating.
Kevin Moyes of Newton Athletic FC, said:
“All the work that we do would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. We cannot thank SA1 Solutions and SA1 Telecoms enough for their support. Not only did the companies provide sponsorship that enabled us to purchase football kit, staff members also attend the events that we run. This shows their high level of commitment to supporting children, healthy lifestyles and communities.”
Simon Ahearne, managing director of SA1 Solutions and SA1 Telecoms, said:
“Giving back to the community is extremely important to our businesses and doing this in a way that supports active and healthy lifestyles aligns with our organisation’s values. We place great emphasis on having healthy and happy employees, and providing benefits like flexible working and healthy snacks to staff help to encourage this. We believe a business’ productivity can be negatively impacted if the health of staff is not prioritised, so supporting active, healthy and balanced lifestyles is one way to avoid this.”
