Carlyle Finance and Cheshire Jets work together to make a difference.
Carlyle Finance is happy to announce they are continuing to work alongside the Cheshire Jets basketball Club as their 2011/12 official Community Sponsor. This is the fourth year of Carlyle Finances sponsorship of the club and registered charity Jets Foundation. Carlyle Finances backing means the Jets can continue to deliver and development a unique variety of community programmes to some of the most vulnerable people in society.
These programmes range from Sportivate, a nationwide campaign that aims to capture the excitement of sport, by providing opportunities for teenagers and young people to participate in high quality weekly coached sports programmes. Sportivate is part of ‘Places People Play Sport’ England’s London 2012 mass participation legacy programme. Delivered by Jets Foundation, Sportivate sessions will target 16-25 year olds; the sessions will deliver a programme of high quality basketball coaching, alongside giving participants the opportunity to gain 2 nationally recognised basketball qualifications. Other schemes undertaken include the Jets Power Forward programme which focuses on helping adults return to employment in conjunction with the Job Centre, to harder edged schemes in partnership with Youth Offending Service and Cheshire Police, these concentrate on motivating and training young people who are currently not in employment education or training.
Carlyle Finance is also heavily involved with the Cheshire Jets Junior Jet clubs of which there are currently 17. These clubs aim to increase participation for all no matter what age or ability. Carlyle is the official shirt sponsor for the Jets elite national league programme which allows the gifted and talented athletes to perform at the highest level. Alongside these there is also a Jets disability club which caters for young people with both physical disabilities and learning difficulties.
In 2012 Carlyle Finance will be known as the Cheshire Jets Summer Camp official sponsor. The Jets summer camp is the largest of its kind in the UK and attracts players from across Europe. Carlyle Finance employees will be given the chance to volunteer at the weeklong camp which takes place in July.
The Jets are very excited to have Carlyle Finance on board for the third year running and look forward to working with them to ensure that as a club we continue to make a real difference to the lives of people in our local communities.
