A reception, showcasing the progress of the KGV development to date is being held at the OGH on Thursday 24 April.
Hosted by KGV director, Jo Wyatt.
The event will begin with an introduction from The Bailiff, Richard Collas, followed by an address by Stuart Falla, MBE.
Guests Attendees will then have the chance to view a short film produced by The Sports Commission showcasing the current facilities and ongoing redevelopment as well as interviews from a range of KGV supporters.
Fundraising for the KGV is ongoing and the team is proud to commemorate securing a milestone of 10 official ‘KGV Benefactors’ who have provided their support as well as substantial funds towards the project.
One of the supporters is The Ana Leaf Foundation who is the first official sponsor of one of a number of unique benches, designed especially for the KGV that will be placed around the 3G Pitch for spectator enjoyment.
Hayley de Putron, a trustee of the Ana Leaf Foundation said that it was wonderful to see what has already been achieved at the KGV.
“This landmark sports and community facility has a significant historic interest to our Foundation and it is great that so many islanders will be able to benefit from its extensive upgrade,” said Mrs de Putron.
The reception marks the launch of an ambitious sponsorship drive to attract donations from organisations and individuals who will in return receive their name and logo on one of the special benches.
Sponsorship starts at a minimum of £20,000 for a bench and proves a unique opportunity to support the ongoing legacy of sport in Guernsey. Guests will also witness the landmark signing of licenses to ensure the exclusive use of the 3G Pitch at the KGV for various local sporting groups.
