Circle K has announced a new partnership with Paralympics Ireland which will see the forecourt retailer become the Official Fuel and Convenience Partner to the Irish Paralympic Team for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games next summer.
Irish European Para Athletic Championship bronze medallists, Jordan Lee and Orla Comerford, joined Circle K’s Managing Director Niall Anderton and Paralympics Ireland President John Fulham at Citywest Hotel in Dublin to make the announcement.
Bringing Communities Together
“Communities are at the heart of everything we do as an organisation and the Paralympic Games bring communities across Ireland together in support of the extraordinary people who represent them,” Anderton said
“We are looking forward to bringing this partnership to life across the Circle K network over the coming months, along with our sponsorship of Team Ireland’s Olympic athletes ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games and wish all athletes every success for the journey ahead.”
Over the coming months, the partnership will become integrated across Circle K’s network of 410 sites nationwide, ensuring visibility of its support of Irish Paralympians in-store.
John Fulham, President of Paralympics Ireland, said that this marks “a great day for Irish Paralympic sport”.
“Circle K is a company with a nationwide footprint that is visible in almost every town and village throughout the country,” Fulham said.
“I truly believe that this partnership will benefit those that need it most; our Irish Paralympic hopefuls.”
