Supporting Sport in Sheffield
Here at Sheffield Window Centre we love our sport and feel it’s important to support our local teams. This is not only a valuable social activity within the company for our employees, but also benefits our business as a whole.
SWC has a long history with Sheffield Tigers speedway team, becoming the main sponsors in 2007. Our involvement has helped the Tigers build an exciting team, which will hopefully go on to secure the Premier League title in the coming years.
In 2012 SWC also became the title sponsors of the Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team. We were blown away by how exciting ice hockey is and how dedicated both the players and the supporters are. We hope that our involvement with the Steelers will enable them to continue their success on the ice and provide great family entertainment for the fans.
We see many similarities in the Tigers and Steelers. They both have a loyal fan base of long time supporters committed to their team. We have found that the Tigers fans have then supported us at Sheffield Window Centre, as they recognise our involvement with their team. We see the same long term aims and ambitions with the Steelers.
The Tigers speedway season runs from March to October with races at Owlerton Stadium every Thursday from 7:45pm. The Steelers ice hockey season runs from September to March with matches taking place at the Motorpoint Sheffield Arena and Ice Sheffield at 7pm most Saturday’s, 5pm Sunday’s and 7:30pm on weeknights. Both are a great night out for the whole family!
Supporting Sheffield Charities
Sheffield Window Centre has taken part in lots of fundraising over the years, for various different charities. We have been involved in fundraising for Sheffield Children’s Hospital and PACT, two amazing charities that help children with cancer and their families. In 2010 we were able to provide the children’s cancer ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital with a list of items they needed but did not have the funds to purchase themselves. In 2012, Andrew Currie from SWC Head Office and Katrina Caley from REHAU (our uPVC profile supplier) ran the Sheffield Half Marathon in aid of PACT.
From January 2015 Sheffield Window Centre has committed to donate three percent of the annual turnover (excluding VAT) of the Service Department to The Children’s Hospital Charity (Registered charity no. 505002) and this will be reviewed on an annual basis. We also donated an initial sum of £1,000 to get the ball rolling.
We have also donated windows and doors to animal charity Rain Rescue, after adopting new family members Trixie and Colby from them, when we saw for ourselves what an amazing job they do.
