20 Dec Gray & Adams Doncaster sponsors local team at World Kickboxing competition
As part of our CSR strategy, Gray & Adams offer support to the local communities that we work within as part of our commitment to our heritage as a family business and our colleagues who live and work in the areas. It is important to us that we support causes and events that are close to our employees’ hearts and that we do what we can to make a difference to the community.
Jonny Wallace has worked with Gray & Adams Doncaster for six years, primarily working in the yard and completing a range of duties for the business such as forklift operating. Jonny’s 14-year-old son, Joe, has a passion for Kickboxing and is a member of the ACMAC Martial Arts School which has various gym locations near our Doncaster depot.
Joe, along with his team members, had the opportunity to compete at the World Championships in Ireland this year and Gray & Adams was delighted to support the young athletes by sponsoring the team.
The team brought home a total of 27 medals with Joe contributing to two silvers and one bronze medal in his first competition at a World level.
Jonny shares his pride in his son’s achievement,
“Joe has been training in martial arts for ten years and he has shown a real passion and talent for it, as a father I want to do all I can to support him to achieve his goals. Gray & Adams as an employer are a fantastic support as they have not only contributed financially which allowed the ACMAC team to compete, but they have shown a real interest in what is important to me and my family. The whole ACMAC team is grateful for the support of Gray & Adams”
