Spectra Group renews their Silver Sponsorship of Team Forces

Team Forces is proud to announce that Spectra Group (UK) Ltd, a specialist provider of secure voice, data and satellite communications systems has just renewed their Silver level Sponsorship with Team Forces to help improve the lived experience for the armed forces community through the power of sport, challenge and adventure. 

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 adventurous 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.

In particular, Spectra Group sponsors the Armed Forces Equine Charity which makes 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 and 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!

Through their Team Forces membership, Spectra Group also contributes to the Ulysses 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, to support some of their 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.”
