Although Manxmove is a relatively new company, we have always done whatever we can to support local charities. We sponsor numerous individuals and small events throughout the year including various charities benefiting from the Parish Walk. However, the main charity donations and sponsorship that we have recently been involved with include the following:
Manxmove sponsor local rugby player
We were delighted to have recently sponsored local resident Blake Snell and we have made a donation towards his world rugby tour this year. The tour was a trip of a lifetime for Blake and took in Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. Blake lives in Greeba although he is currently studying at Kirkham Grammar School in Preston where he is also enjoying playing rugby for the Kirkham team.
Manxmove continue to support Douglas Rugby Club
For the last 5 years we have supported Douglas Rugby Club and currently have a Manxmove banner on the side of the pitch. We regularly attend the home matches and also support numerous social events in the clubhouse.
Manxmove Sponsor amputee Manx footballer Sean Jackson
The 17 year old Ballakermeen High School student has spent the last few months on the talent ID programme for EAFA, training once a month with the elite junior England players. Sean was recently given the opportunity to train with the senior squad which comprised of two training sessions in Crewe with the squad who were preparing for Octobers European Cup. Our donation will help Sean with travel expenses
to attend the league matches and training sessions for Manchester City and England Junior Amputee squads. This involves regular travel to the UK, which has been primarily funded by Sean’s family throughout this last year. We wish Sean all the best.

We at Manxmove are delighted to sponsor Laxey AFC Under 18’s football team 2016/7 season.
We’ve supported this club in 2014/5/6 and provided the kit for the lads complete with Manxmove logo, which looked great.
Manxmove have a connection with Laxey football club through Helene, whose late father Charlie Gordon not only played for the club throughout his life but was also involved in the building of the new club house. In addition, Ian and Tracy’s son Matthew has previously played for the team prior to leaving the Island to go to university.

We have supported this worthwhile local charity for the last 18 months and will continue to do so throughout 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Manxmove Sponsor Local TT Rider
The Manxmove team were delighted to sponsor a local TT rider for 2015 IOM TT Supersport 600 races.
Manxmove built a race prepared Honda CBR600rr especially for the job, which is finished in bright Manxmove yellow with matching company logos.
“We were delighted to be able to have a local rider on board our bike for the 2015 TT. Manxmove is a Manx company and the bike has been locally built by us, so it was really important to us to also have a Manx rider. Our company has continued to grow in the four years since we launched it so it is nice to be able to put something back into the local community and support a local up and coming rider”
Graham Wilson, Director

Wish Upon a Dream
A superb worthwhile charity that was launched in 2007 which grants wishes to local sick and terminally ill children. http://www.wishuponadream.co.uk
We sponsored this charity through Ian Sims who, with the help of his wife Mary, used their classic Morris Mini Traveller to cover a 4000 mile round trip through Italy. http://www.italianjob.info
We supported Kemmyrk not long after we started the business.
This is an extremely worthwhile local charity which does a superb job looking after homeless people, or people living in completely unsuitable accommodation.
You simply don’t realise that the Isle of Man has a homeless problem until you speak to Joanna from the charity.
Kemmyrk is now called Housing Matters http://www.housingmatters.im and continues to provide invaluable support to local people with housing problems.
