Advantage Insurance Company Limited is the latest company to partner with the Gibraltar 2019 NatWest International Island Games, having entered into a sponsorship agreement that gives the firm ‘Silver Sponsor’ status.

The Games take place in July next year and will see the visit of 2,500 participants across fourteen sports - from Athletics to Triathlon - as well as several hundred officials, dignitaries and supporters.

Fabian Vinet, Head of Commercial Operations of the Gibraltar Island Games Organising Committee, welcomed the news: “I am particularly pleased that an entity like Advantage, whose customer base is in the United Kingdom and not Gibraltar, has so enthusiastically involved itself with the Games. Here is a company whose market lies elsewhere and yet they are giving back to our community in a very tangible way. I think this is a great example of corporate social responsibility. Indeed, Advantage are not mere financial sponsors of the 2019 Island Games; they have sought to take an active role and their members of staff will be volunteering, as a team-building exercise, in helping at several of the sporting events, which is very commendable.

Speaking on behalf of Advantage, Finance Director Stephen Mumford added: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Gibraltar 2019 NatWest International Island Games. As significant local employers and proud members of the Gibraltar community, we are excited to support and be part of this great event, with many of our colleagues volunteering throughout the games. The whole ethos of the event also supports our Wellbeing programme and the promotion of healthy living. We look forward to cheering on the athletes next summer.
