Offshore company commits to three year programme in education, sport and the arts

Attollo Offshore, through its charitable foundation, is pledging an initial £25,000 towards a fund which will invest in education, sport and arts projects to support young people in Grimsby.

The specialist offshore asset manager has set up the Attollo Foundation which will work in partnership with local public and third sector organisations, providing funding and resources to increase the impact and reach of projects in, primarily, maritime and STEM education and sport.

Grimsby and Aberdeen-based Attollo Offshore has a specific interest in offshore wind and is keen to demonstrate the opportunities and improve education and research in marine renewables.

Ben Moore, managing director of Attollo Offshore, said: “By setting up this foundation and allocating  these funds over a three year period, we aim to support the long-term development and sustainability of selected projects that will accelerate all-inclusive access for young people into competitive sports and education, providing a legacy to the area that supports the world's largest offshore wind projects.

 “In discussions with the local community, we identified areas of need around sports and education projects. It became apparent that this need was for longer term packages of support to improve resources and accelerate participation in competitive sports and education. By helping programmes to become more sustainable over a longer period, we will help create greater opportunities for young people who would otherwise be unable to gain access.”

Attollo Offshore is keen to play an active role in the local community in Grimsby. Through its foundation, the company will be targeting areas in which it can make the most impact. In addition to funding, Attollo Offshore will bring together leaders and organisations to support these goals and the broader regional resources.

Mr Moore added: “We are pleased to already be in advanced  discussions with organisations that have requested assistance but, if any others who are involved in the development of young people in the Grimsby area, require support or funding, we'd encourage them to get in touch.”
