Ceetak sponsorship supports young rowing dreams
Ceetak is delighted to announce the decision to continue to support The Star Rowing Club based on the River Great Ouse, Bedford with further sponsorship through to 2018. Ceetak has supported The Star Club since 2012, as it was originated in 1960 from RAF National Servicemen and the company’s Chairman, Ray Baron, was a founding member over 50 years ago.
Since its fledgling days, the club has built a strong national reputation for sporting excellence. Its clubhouse and boat rooms (constructed by members in 1988) showcases photographs documenting the club’s greatest achievements including British, International and Olympic competitions.
Almost everyone at Star Club is a volunteer who works hard for the love of their club and the facilities they provide. Their commitment to the local community includes provisions for pupils from state schools (where a full time community coach is funded by two charitable trusts) and this is as important to Star Club as nurturing their top athletes. Our sponsorship this year has supported the junior squad in of its endeavours this season, largely due to the purchase of a new quad boat for the older athletes to use.
The juniors have had a very good season and continue to go from strength to strength; over the summer the quad has gained 14 new members which is a very exciting prospect for the seasons to come. We are proud to be able to help and support our local sporting community and wish Star Club all the best in the forthcoming season.
