Mitsubishi Electric partners with Special Olympics GB

Mitsubishi Electric has announced that it will become a new official partner of Special Olympics GB for the next two years.

Mitsubishi Electric is the official partner of Special Olympics GB.

As the largest provider of a year-round, all-ability sports programme in Great Britain, Special Olympics GB supports over 10,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities on a continued basis.

Itaru Watanabe, president of Mitsubishi Electric UK Branch, said: “We are delighted to support the work this incredible body does to enable athletes to realise their full potential. Everyone makes assumptions about the limits of people with intellectual disabilities and we are pleased to help confound preconceptions and give these amazing athletes the chance they deserve.”

Mitsubishi Electric, which is also a partner of Special Olympics in Italy, is now encouraging its employees to undertake vital fundraising for Special Olympics GB across the country. The company’s employees will also be volunteering at Special Olympics GB’s regional events and will have a presence at the 40th Anniversary Games in Stirling in August 2018.

Murton Mann, chairman of Special Olympics GB, commented: “We are delighted that Mitsubishi Electric has become an Official Partner of Special Olympics GB – from the first meetings we can tell this is going to be a wonderful partnership for Special Olympics and for Mitsubishi Electric. It is a partnership which will benefit our 10,000 athletes in England, Scotland and Wales and they will also be thrilled with this news.”
