Gala Retail has announced a three-year extension to its title sponsorship with Ireland’s network of children’s activity camps, Starcamp.
Starcamp is known nationwide for its award-winning summer camps, which take place in more than 250 locations across Ireland each year, and this year, for the first time, Starcamp has added over 20 Starcamp with Gala Retail Easter camps to its schedule.
Speaking about the sponsorship of Starcamp, Gary Desmond, chief executive of Gala Retail, commented, “Gala is delighted to announce our continued sponsorship of Starcamp with Gala Retail, supporting the delivery of the exceptional Starcamp children’s camps that take place across Ireland.
“The strength of Starcamp is in the confidence that it gives young people, and with a strong presence across towns and cities across the country, there’s a real synergy with our 220 Gala Group stores, who are at the heart of communities across the country.”
As part of its annual six-figure sponsorship agreement with Starcamp, Gala is providing over €10,000 worth of prizes to participating children and their schools each year, and gifting every young person a co-branded bag and certificate of achievement.
Speaking about the continued support from Gala Retail, Aideen O’Grady, founder and director of Starcamp Ireland, said, “Gala Retail is an ideal partner for us. As an Irish-owned company with strong roots in communities across Ireland, we share similar values to Gala Retail, as well as a very similar footprint, in terms of our locations.
“Over the past few years, the support of Gala Retail has enabled us to grow, invest in online content during the pandemic, create new content for our physical camps, and bring new activities to children right across Ireland.”
Starcamp with Gala Retail camps will be taking place in over 250 locations, hosting almost 30,000 children. Easter Camps run from 3 to 6 and 11 to 14 April, with summer camps running weekly from 3 July to 19 August.
