Tesco joins the growing list of sponsors of the IXth NatWest Island
With just over thirty weeks to go to the start of the NatWest Island
Games, Games mascot Max Cat was at Tesco on Lake Road in Douglas to
supervise the handing over of a cheque for a thousand pounds by store
manager Paul Gallagher, to the Games Organising team and to the Tourism
Minister, David Cretney.
Tesco have now committed themselves to raising fifteen thousand pounds
for the Games over the next six months. Staff members will be organising
fund raisers and the store itself will be running special promotions
and offers to support the Island's effort. Max Cat will be very much
in evidence in the run-up to the games, so shoppers at Tesco shouldn't
be alarmed if they find a seven foot cat helping them with their shopping!
Paul Gallagher presents the first installment for the production
for the NatWest Island Games to Hon. David Cretney, MHK, Minister
Tourism & Leisure and Ven. Brian Partington Chairman of the
Committe for the Games, under the watchful eye of Max Cat.
