Team Forces is delighted to announce that one of our longest standing sponsors Atkins has just renewed as a Gold level sponsor!

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is a world-leading design, engineering and project-management consultancy company. As part of their sponsorship it will be proudly funding a wide variety of armed forces sports, as well as supporting the Women in Defence movement and Capt Preet Chandi MBE (Polar Preet) on her epic expedition to become the first woman to complete a solo, unsupported crossing of Antarctica.

Atkins is also contributing to our ‘good causes’ fund which offers grants to groups and communities wishing to undertake challenging, adventurous activities which will help to improve health, wellbeing and recovery in armed forces personnel, including WIS veterans.

Maj Gen Lamont Kirkland CBE, CEO of Team Forces stated: “Atkins has been a long-standing supporter of Team Forces and I am delighted that it has decided to renew as a Gold sponsor. The increased investment, particularly in our good causes fund, is a strong sign of putting social responsibility at the forefront of company values. Atkins’ aim to ‘make the world better for all’, strongly resonates with our own mission to improve our armed forces health and wellbeing through sport, challenge and adventure.”

Alan Lines, VP Industry Engagement, Aerospace and Defence at Atkins said: “We are delighted to continue our work with Team Forces for the 8th year to help provide valuable experiences for more serving personnel and veterans. Gold level sponsorship will also strengthen our support for Women in Defence, helping to drive more diversity and inclusion within the armed forces and provide opportunities for women to succeed at all levels.”
