BrightHouse and SportsAid announce backing for local athlete Kieran Davin
27 Mar 2012
Stevenage, 26 March 2012: BrightHouse and SportsAid today launched their sponsorship of local athlete Kieran Davin.
Kieran, 15, an international judo champion, has recently made his return from a shoulder injury. He is now focusing on Olympic glory in Rio in four years' time.
“It is great to have the backing of a local company like BrightHouse," Kieran said.
"The SportsAid Award they have sponsored will help me in my recovery from injury and on the road to Rio.”
Nikki Williams, BrightHouse's customer service manager, added, “I’m really pleased the staff at the Stevenage store are getting behind Kieran Davin and supporting him on his pursuit of a medal at the Olympic Games in Judo. Kieran broke his shoulder at the British National Championships last year but has shown real determination to recover and get back into training.”
As SportsAid’s patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge is helping to shine a light on the achievements and potential of young athletes throughout the UK – an inspiring generation who one day hope to represent the nation at the Olympic or Paralympic Games. SportsAid alumnus Sir Chris Hoy welcomed the patronage by saying, “SportsAid played an important role when I was starting out so I know what a huge boost this will be to the young sportsmen and women the charity helps today. As patron Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will give them the profile they deserve.”
