Event Sponsors

Torpedo7 and other fantastic event sponsors

We have an amazing family of sponsors that support our events; this includes our primary sponsor for all our Events, Torpedo7. All our sponsors help deliver affordable and fun events to you, so everyone is able to take part. They also provide us with a range of awesome prizes that we give away to participants at our event prizegivings.

Below we have displayed our event sponsor logos. Please support these guys whenever you can and check out the links to their websites by clicking on their logos.

Can you help out?

As our events are all non-profit we are always looking for ways to make them affordable to more young people. If you are interested in helping us out as a sponsor of prizes, services or funding to help us subsidise our entry fees, we would love to hear from you.

Please contact Darren our Events Manager on 027 5301226 to discuss the various events and options.
