Gatehouse Bank sponsors community sports club

Gatehouse Bank has today announced a three-year sponsorship agreement with community sports club, Hyderi Sports Association (HSA).

Based in Croydon, South London, Hyderi Sports Association facilitates regular sports activities for its 300 members, including football, cricket, volleyball, netball and swimming. The club has a diverse membership, with its associated community centre regularly hosting interfaith initiatives and getting involved with local charity work.

Gatehouse Bank’s support will help HSA to provide sports kits for their members, facilitate their attendance in UK and overseas sports tournaments and support the club in hosting community sports days for all athletes.

Hyderi Sports Association adheres to the Islamic values of inclusivity, empathy and understanding, and strives to create an active, collaborative and diverse environment for its members. These values align to Gatehouse Bank’s ethos as a Shariah-compliant UK challenger bank that follows the Islamic principles of being transparent, fair and socially responsible.

Charles Haresnape, CEO of Gatehouse Bank, commented: “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Hyderi Sports Association, which allows us to give back to the community by helping the association's athletes achieve their sporting aspirations on a local and global scale.

“We are looking forward to working closely with the HSA team and wish them the best of luck in their upcoming tournaments, including the Unity Games in Dubai, which is taking place this month.”

Haider Javed, Chairman of Hyderi Sports Association, said: “We are extremely delighted to embark on our partnership with Gatehouse Bank, which we believe is a testament to not only the hard work and dedication of this HSA team in developing Hyderi’s sports infrastructure, but to all the participants who actively engage in sports on a weekly basis.

“Gatehouse Bank’s reputation speaks for itself and we’re proud to have found a sponsor that aligns with our values and principles as a community and sports club. I am incredibly excited for what the future holds and the progress we can achieve together.

“We’re very much looking forward to working alongside the team at Gatehouse Bank and firmly believe this partnership will enhance our ability to achieve success with our athletes of all ages!”
