Sampford Care Home Sponsor Local Canoeist

Tim Escott, a local student from Melksham Oak Community School has recently been sponsored by Majesticare so that he could purchase a new canoe to compete in competitions.

Linda Benison, Majesticare said “Tim is a local student doing very well; when we discovered he was looking for sponsorship we contacted our Business Development Manager whom was very interested in supporting him. I am proud that we were able to help.”

Tim is very passionate about the sport and has recently been in France competing at national level for Team GB against countries from across the globe. Whilst there, he achieved 8th place in a 2k race and 10th place in a 200m race.

Julie Emmott, Business Development Manager for Majesticare said “I am very proud that we are able to support Tim and Team GB through our sponsorship. This is an exciting time to be involved with sporting activities with the run up to the 2012 Olympics, and it is also an opportunity to promote an interest in the sport as well as getting people active.”

This sponsorship comes in a long list of support Majesticare Homes offer to communities and charities in the local area.
