If you’ve ever stepped inside the Parafix Head Office based on the Lancing Business Park in West Sussex, you would not have failed to notice the close ties we have with sports. The walls are adorned with various sports memorabilia, including signed rugby, cricket, football, golf and boxing items.
The reason we believe in sport relates back to Managing Director, Mike Punter’s early days in business when asked to recruit a Sales Manager for an overseas supplier. Mike asked for the key attributes they were looking for and the response was an athlete, somebody who wants to win, but learns from failure!
Our sporting enthusiasm is also reflected in our sponsorships. We are very proud to sponsor Brighton & Hove Football Club, Sussex County Cricket Club (where Mike Punter is a Vice President of Sussex Young Cricketers), Sussex County Ladies Golf Team and the Sussex Winter Golf League. We are also sponsors of the Parafix Sussex Senior Challenge Cup.
As part of these sponsorships we are able to offer all Parafix employees access to hospitality areas both at the Cricket Club and the Amex Stadium. We take great pleasure in being able to support our local community as well as offering our employees this additional benefit.
Parafix also hold an annual golf day for our stakeholders, customers, suppliers and friends. This entails a full day of golf at Singing Hills Golf Course in Albourne, West Sussex, followed by a meal, prize giving and raffle for a locally nominated charity. Our last event raised an amazing £1,000.
We’re a friendly bunch at Parafix and always keen to get people involved in our golf day. The event takes place annually in August and if any of our customers would like to take part, or donate a raffle prize, please speak to your Parafix contact who will be happy to arrange this for you.
