Lancer Scott sponsorship boosts Spectrum Work Experience expansion

The future of Bristol Sport Foundation and Bristol Rugby Community Foundation’s Spectrum Work Experience Programme (WEX) has been secured thanks to generous sponsorship from Bristol-based construction company, Lancer Scott.

Following his attendance at the 2017 Gala Dinner, during which the story of Nino Genua – who began his journey on the programme – was showcased, company chairman, Terry Hosier has become a huge fan of the Foundation’s wide-ranging work, culminating in a decision to grant a generous donation to the charity.

“We attended the Gala Dinner in December and were completely blown away by the case studies shown on the night,” said Terry Hosier, chairman of Lancer Scott.

“The story of Nino Genua was the one that hit the hardest – showing his journey from the Spectrum Work Experience programme, to now coaching in the community.

“It shows how the programme is helping to break down boundaries in the community and we are so happy to be able to contribute to the future of this magnificent programme.”

“Now with the generosity and support of Lancer Scott, our ability to meet needs across the city and for all abilities just grows and grows. Watch out Bristol, here we come.”

Kris Tavender, Spectrum programme manager

In addition to his financial donation, Terry has also offered extended work experience placements at Lancer Scott, to pupils who have graduated the Foundation’s WEX scheme.

“From its earliest routes, Bristol Rugby Community Foundation’s Work Experience Programme (WEX) has been meeting the needs of truly special individuals,” said programme manager, Kris Tavender.

“Now with the generosity and support of Lancer Scott, our ability to meet needs across the city and for all abilities just grows and grows. Watch out Bristol, here we come.”
