Orion Group, the UK’s leading engineering personnel provider to the oil and gas sector, has announced the sponsorship of the Stephen Gallacher Foundation, an organisation to encourage and develop junior golfers in Scotland.
The deal, which will see Orion come on board as one of the Foundation’s ‘gold sponsors’, will initially last for the period of one year.
The Foundation, launched in April 2012 is the brainchild of top-Scottish golfer, Stephen Gallacher. Its aim is to make sure that every young person has the opportunity to play golf, with the hope that one day, a Scottish champion is created.
Scott Burns-Smith, Head of Marketing and Communications, Orion Group, said: “Orion has a long tradition of investing in sporting causes and the chance to get involved with such a worthwhile Foundation made perfect sense for us.
“We look forward to supporting the Stephen Gallacher Foundation, helping it to continue the great work it does for the future of Scottish golf.”
Stephen Gallacher, said: “This increased funding from Orion Group is greatly welcomed. The aim of the Foundation has always been to help junior players maximise their potential through playing golf, while encouraging a healthy lifestyle, teaching them discipline, honesty and the joys of the game.
“This new sponsorship deal will allow us to continue to create a programme of events to maintain these aims that works for young children in Scotland.”
