Advantage Group UK Proudly Supports GroceryAid Charity Sporting Lunch
GroceryAid is the national charity for grocery people in the United Kingdom. Whether you work for a manufacturer, wholesaler, supplier or grocery store, you can turn to GroceryAid for financial help and practical support.
Advantage UK were recently one of the major sponsors and proud supporters of the annual Sporting Lunch organised by GroceryAid. The event was attended by over 1,200 industry colleagues and famous Sporting Legends such as Lord Seb Coe, Mike Tindall, Jonny Wilkinson and Alan Shearer, among many others.
As a major sponsor, Advantage UK were delighted to welcome a former England test cricketer, Ryan Sidebottom, to their table. Ryan is now retired after taking more than 1,000 career wickets and being the only player over the last 15 years to win five county championships. In addition to running a Cricket Academy and Foundation in his retirement, Ryan is also currently training for the 2019 Dancing on Ice show.
The event was a spectacular success, raising a record of over £515,000 on the day to support those in need who work in the Grocery Industry. The money raised will help fund the December financial grant payments that the charity makes to over 2,200 colleagues in need.
Advantage UK is proud to have contributed to such a worthy cause. The GroceryAid Sporting Lunch was an invaluable opportunity to help those seeking support in the grocery industry as well as network with industry colleagues and engage with Sporting Heroes.
