Another football season has kicked off and we, GlucoRx, are proud to be supporting local team Aldershot Town Football Club again through the 2019-20 season.
Who are Aldershot Town FC?
Aldershot Town Football Club, also known as ‘The Shots’, were formed on 22nd April 1992. They play in the Vanarama National League (the fifth tier of English football) and are managed by Danny Searle. Aldershot Town play their home games at the EBB stadium, wearing a red and blue home kit and black and yellow away kit. The club has a blue badge featuring a phoenix, which is also the character for the club mascot.
We have proudly sponsored the East Bank at the EBB stadium since 2015, and from the 2016-17 season we have also been sponsoring the youth team’s matchday kits.
As well as an ongoing sponsorship with Aldershot Town FC, our GlucoRx team can be found at several home games throughout the season offering free blood glucose testing. We will be offering these again this season and will be present at more games than ever before, so keep an eye out for us on matchdays if you want your blood glucose levels tested for free!
It is calculated that around 1 million people have Type 2 diabetes but have not yet been diagnosed. This is the reason why GlucoRx offers free blood glucose testing, so we can help people keep an eye on their levels and see if they could be at risk. 6 in 10 people have no symptoms when they’re diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, but we want to help people identify it as soon as possible.
We believe that being involved with a club like Aldershot Town facilitates our mission to encourage people to live a healthy and active lifestyle, to prevent the risk of developing or help manage their diabetes.
We therefore work closely with the club to help raise awareness about diabetes and healthy living, and through our sponsorship and matchday testing this is accessible to all of the club supporters as well as opposition supporters.
We’re wishing the team all the best for a successful season! Come on The Shots!
