CT UK are proud supporters of Backup

15 June, 2018

Creative Technology is proud to support Backup, the technical entertainment charity providing financial support to industry technical professionals working in live events, theatre, TV and film.

This July, a team of petrol heads made up of CT employees and like-minded clients will take to the track for Kartfest at Sandown Park for an exciting day of karting. 31 teams from across the entertainment industry will take part in a three-hour endurance race to battle it out for first place! You can expect a few underhand tactics from the team’s jokers as we chase down the competition! While of course also raising those all-important funds for an extremely worthy cause.

This isn’t the first time CT has supported Backup and as well as being a charity that is very close to the company’s heart – it also provides an awesome day out for all!

Matthew Eve, Head of Corporate, commented “This is a fantastic industry charity that hosts great events for everyone to enjoy. They can really make a difference to people when they need to get back-up on their feet again and I think everyone should be supporting them.”

In addition, Kartfest is not the only Backup charity event CT are taking part in this year. This September, 'Team VeloCT', made up of Head of Sport, Steve Purkess, Project Managers, Nic Maag & Ollie Last, and CEO of Europe and the Middle East, Dave Crump will don their Lycra for Velo South, a 100mile ride through the West Sussex countryside, starting and finishing on the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Steve Purkess, commented, “Apart from motivating me to get fit, the Velo South - 100 miles, is a great opportunity to raise money for the Backup charity, Backup does great work in our industry supporting people when they need it most.

If you’d like to donate to 'Team VeloCT', you can do so on our Raisely page. Any contribution large or small will be much appreciated.
