Lankelma believes it should play its part in supporting local communities both at home and abroad.
We are proud to be the Athletic and Cricket sponsor of the Norton Knatchbull School, Ashford for 2017/18, providing additional funds to support school teams. In recent years, we have also sponsored Beckley Rangers under 15s football team, which plays in the Ashford and District Youth League.
Lankelma helped fund Ashford and Team GB paratriathlete Adrian Heathfield’s goal of qualifying for the 2016 Rio Paralympics. Adrian was ultimately unsuccessful in his attempt, due to injury, and has since switched to paracycling.
Giving economic support to communities around the world
We recruit and train staff from Sussex and Kent whenever possible. Many of our staff move to the area when they join us and continue to stay for many years.
We also use local staff and suppliers when we work overseas, as it can help improve the skills of local people and boost economies. This type of support is particularly important in developing countries. When we carried out an offshore project at the height of the Ebola crisis in Guinea, west Africa in 2014, we made sure local operatives were kept in work, when other companies pulled out of the region.
