Olympic gold medallist and Commonwealth Games England president, Denise Lewis OBE has helped launch Team England’s partnership with Npower.
The group, which serves around five million residential and business accounts with electricity and gas, has come on board with the scheme to show their support for team in this year’s Commonwealth Games.
With 10 weeks to go until the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, Npower has key sites in the Midlands, North and North-East of England.
Speaking about Npower’s partnership with Team England, Denise Lewis OBE, president of Commonwealth Games England said: “The support Npower gives is invaluable in helping our athletes achieve success at the Games. I know first-hand the power fan support can have on performance and the nation’s support will genuinely help Team England over in Australia.
“The Games might be far away, but everyone can get behind our athletes and npower’s “Power of Support” campaign will be integral to that, encouraging everyone back home to be a part of the Team England family. Seeing the excitement from the kids today has been really special and I hope we have inspired something in them, not only to get behind Team England but also to go on and achieve their dreams themselves.”
The school is in the shadows of the Alexander Stadium, which will be a host venue for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Ed Madden, npower’s Head of Marketing added: “We are extremely proud to be supporting Team England at such an exciting time for the Commonwealth Games. As the only major event to feature able-bodied and para-athlete competitions together and an equal number of medal events for men and women, it particularly resonated with us. It celebrates the best of sport where diversity and equality are embraced and celebrated.
“It is especially fitting to be here in Birmingham, the host city of the next Games in 2022. The West Midlands is an important hub for npower and we hope our support can truly make a difference to the team. We want to encourage the public to get behind our athletes, their Power of Support will be priceless and we hope it will help power Team England to its best performances yet.”
