Parallel has long prided itself for giving a helping hand to the local community; particular in helping young sportsman, sportswomen and clubs to go further and better themselves. Below are just a handful of the benefactors who have been provided help from the companies within the Parallel Group.
Parallel has been a proud supporter of Ben since his early years as a Leicester Tigers colt. Parallel provide individual sponsorship for Ben as part of the Market Rasen & Louth Rugby Football Club based in the town. Our sponsorship money goes towards paying for kit and match fees for the season, as well as having exposure in match day programmes and sponsors day events. As ever, we wish Ben and the Club well for the season starting in September.
Over the years Parallel has supported the next generation of players coming through the excellent youth set up at the local Rugby Union club by providing sponsorship for playing kit.
Similarly, at the town’s Football Club, the company has provided playing kit for junior and senior teams, as well as training kit.
Market Rasen Town Cricket Club have always had a fond affiliation with the business and on top of providing sponsorship for clothing, kit and equipment, Parallel paid £3000 towards new wicket covers for the club to enable them to play more cricket and eventually reach their goal of becoming an ECB Premier League side once again.
Recently, Parallel have started to support Graeme in the arena of Clay Pigeon Shooting. Having taken up the sport less than 2 years ago, Graeme has made quick strides through the classifications and continues to improve at a rapid rate. This has been marked with a series of class wins and an overall high gun. This form has been taken on to the biggest stage this year with Graeme competing at a national and international level. A 4th place in class at the Clay Shooting Classic was swiftly followed by another 4th at the World Championships. With plenty of shooting left in the summer, a podium place is hopefully moving ever closer.
As well as the sporting arena, Parallel is a large contributor to the wider local community. Support for the Round Table, Flights for Lives, Market Rasen Father Christmas Fund and various other small donations allow the company to give back to the local area.
