Anyone who knows us at Eitex, or has worked with us in the past, knows we’re strong supporters of all things local. Not just local businesses, but outside in the wider community too. We firmly believe that community is where the real power in the world lives. When local people come together, anything is possible for the greater good.
This season, Eitex is incredibly proud to sponsor the Castleford Tigers. Dean Spencer, our MD, has been a lifelong Cas Tigers supporter. He says, “When we moved our offices to Castleford recently, it was an ideal opportunity for us to support our local team.”
Castleford Tigers, if you don’t know, is one of the most famous Rugby League Clubs in the UK, with their home games played at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle stadium on Wheldon Road. As well as boasting Great Britain Internationals and England players among their numbers, they nurture up and coming rugby talent in young players.
And, like us, Castleford Tigers take an active interest in community issues and charitable ventures.
Castleford has its own business networking group called #ThirdThurs. Held on the third Thursday every month, Eitex helps run the group along with Castleford Tigers and a few other interested businesses. It’s a thriving group, non-profit, and helps business owners develop skills and grow their enterprises with like-minded people in the community.
One of the organisations involved in the #ThirdThurs group is another close to Eitex’s heart, The Prince of Wales Hospice. Eitex was the first business to join a brand new networking group, Club 5, which helps raise funds for the hospice and support them in their work. They care for patients with life-limiting conditions, and give support to the family and friends who also care for them.
Supporting Each Other
It’s a good feeling when local communities work together. Our business at Eitex ranges across the country, but we never forget that our roots are here along with our main base of operations. We appreciate all our valued local clients, and enjoy giving back when the opportunity arises. As it did with the chance to sponsor Castleford Tigers this season.
We’ll certainly be cheering them on and wish them every success in the coming season and beyond, including the upcoming Betfred Super League fixture with Hull KR on 1st June.
