At CGI, we actively embrace our responsibility to the communities in which we live and work, supporting our communities has never been more important than during the pandemic. We are proud to have continued to support community groups across the UK, allowing them to continue to operate safely throughout the last 18 months.
Our kit sponsorship programme supports local community groups and sports clubs nominated by our members. From GirlGuiding to football teams, choirs to gymnastics clubs, over the last year we have sponsored kits for more than 300 clubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Australia.
The start of the pandemic saw the need for CGI to support our communities even further, funding PPE such as masks, screens and hand sanitiser to allow clubs to continue to serve their communities at the time when they were needed most.
We have supported multiple foodbanks, charities and children’s clubs who without this support may have struggled to operate within government guidelines. CGI also donated 559 laptops via Business2Schools to allow children to continue learning remotely.
We have now sponsored physical kit and PPE equipment for more than 470 clubs since the programme began! We are delighted with the success of the programme in recent years and look forward to celebrating our 500th sponsorship very soon!
