Therefore, to form such links will be of huge benefit for us both and this builds upon the long association and the fantastic support from SOS Kit Aid Ambassador Gareth Chilcott.

A massive welcome to Alister Strahan Managing Director and the rest of the Venatour team.

Gareth, Alister and all the team at Venatour are very pleased that we have been able to partner up with SOS Kit Aid. With Gareth having been an ambassador for the charity for many years and, with the history of the two teams working together on a number of projects, to have a proper partnership in place is great news. With the Rugby Cup and Lions tours coming up and the 6 Nations recently kicking off, we hope to be able to spread the SOS Kit Aid word and looking forward to the next, exciting few years.
