Spectra Group renews their Silver Sponsorship of Team Forces

Spectra Group renews their Silver Sponsorship of Team Forces

Spectra Group (UK) Ltd, a specialist provider of secure voice, data and satellite communications systems, is extremely pleased to announce renewal of their Silver Sponsorship for Team Forces this year and is very proud to be supporting British Forces sport and adventure training through this excellent organisation.

Spectra Group’s support to Team Forces, and such extreme endeavours as expedition Frozen Dagger, forms a fundamental part of Spectra’s UK MoD social responsibility plan, through which they give back to the wider customer community across UK defence.  Sport and adventure training is a key component of service life generating teamwork, leadership skills and personal challenge but the funding of some elements can often be difficult to secure.  Through their Silver Sponsorship, Spectra Group enables wider participation and increased quality of key sporting events directly supporting those taking part.

Team Forces is an MoD endorsed programme which improves the lived experience for the armed forces community through the power of sport, challenge and adventure.  Their initiatives improve health, wellbeing and recovery of service individuals by promoting excellence, equality and inclusion. Team Forces conducts fundraising, attracts sponsorship and makes financial grants to increase the accessibility of such activities.

In particular, Spectra Group have sponsored the Armed Forces Equine Charity to make equine sport and recreation more affordable and accessible to the military community.  For example, last year over 19,000 people enjoyed equine activities, at all levels, at their Armed Forces Equestrian Centres.  They also supported 424 Wounded Injured and Sick (WIS) serving members to access horse riding and provided critical support to over 50 highly vulnerable veterans who had isolated themselves and were at high risk.  In addition, their contribution to the Ulysees Trust, a charity which provides funding assistance to challenging expeditions and activities involving members of the Volunteer Reserve Forces and Cadet Forces of the UK, supported some of the 80+ adventurous training activities.  In a significant expansion from 2022, last year over half the cadet expeditions took place overseas; including Canada, South Africa, Borneo, Norway and the USA.

Major General Lamont Kirkland, CEO at Team Forces said: “We are delighted that Spectra Group has renewed as a Silver level sponsor. Their long-standing support of Team Forces demonstrates Spectra Group’s significant and ongoing commitment to the armed forces community.  Through their membership Spectra Group will help us deliver social impact through sport, challenge and adventure – together we will help the best get better!”

Simon Davies, CEO of Spectra Group said: “As a veteran myself, and with many veterans employed by Spectra Group, I am proud to announce our continued Silver Sponsorship of Team Forces to best support those still serving and have the opportunity to give back.  Our ethos at Spectra Group is to design communication products that are focused on solving the problems that front line soldiers face, and so, to also support members of the armed forces community to have greater access to sport, challenge and adventure is a real privilege.”
