Solutions for Accounting are proud to be the main team sponsor for The Nottingham Lions for the third year in a row.
‘At Solutions we believe that sport in the local community is imperative, especially with the younger generation. In Nottingham, we have amazing facilities for ice hockey that other cities could only ever dream of, and it’s important that we don’t take them for granted. The Lions players are viewed as role models for the younger generation, inspiring them to try something new and persevere with their talents.’ Iain Barker, Managing Director at Solutions
The Solutions logo features heavily on the team’s shirts as well as appearing on off ice gear and the Lions physical and online media. There are numerous opportunities for the two organisations to work together in the upcoming months, with fundraising activities and cross promotional events in the pipeline.
Having just celebrated their 18th birthday, Solutions have significantly grown since their humble beginnings in 1998 with only 1 member of staff, compared to the 38 today.
‘We have significantly grown over the last few years having more than doubled since 2011 and with ambitious plans to do the same again over the next 5 years. We are excited to see where the journey will take us and what is in store for us in the future. It is very important for us to work with the local community and be involved in fundraising activities and raising awareness for good causes. We have a great relationship with the Lions and love going along to games for team bonding with our employees and taking customers along to matches, some of which get hooked!’ Iain Barker, MD
Solutions for Accounting are the Midlands leading Sage and Swiftpage business partners, also specialising in a wide-range of business intelligence and contact management solutions enabling even more flexibility and bespoke approaches to software, with offices nationwide, we have a large customer base around the UK and abroad.
‘We've been involved with ice hockey for years and felt the Nottingham Lions was a club that looked interesting for us to be involved with and felt it was a worthy cause to be sponsoring, and we were right! We are also sponsoring the ‘ice hockey player of the year’ category at the Nottingham Sports Awards in October.
Head Coach Matt Bradbury said “without the support of organisations like Solutions for Accounting and others it would be very difficult to maintain our position in our ice hockey development programme. We don’t see Solutions as just a sponsor they are an integral part of the Lions family. Over the past two seasons our relationship has grown and this year Solutions are the headlining sponsor of the Lions Academy too assisting the development of young Lions from 9 years upwards. We have had a very successful partnership with Iain and the rest of the Solutions team and look forward to working alongside them again this season.
