Sponsorship

Support

Scott Rees & Co is committed to improving the lives and wellbeing of not only our clients but to those who need help and support in more forms than simply legal representation. We often undertake sponsorship opportunities with local teams, aspiring athletes, charities and more. As a proud product of Skelmersdale, we are always looking to help the local and nearby communities.

We are always looking for the right cause to assist with. If you feel your group, team or you as an individual could benefit with Scott Rees & Co’s sponsorship, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Let us know about yourself, the cause you represent and some contact details so that we can get in touch with you.

Current sponsorship projects

At Scott Rees we continuously pledge our support and sponsorship to many organisations, events and individuals within Skelmersdale, the North West and the UK. Our current sponsorship projects include:

The Skem Men-Aces’ biggest achievement was taking part at the Special Olympics National Games held in Bath 2013, where they won a silver medal.
