As lead sponsor of Piers Gilliver this will reaffirm our commitment to furthering our corporate social responsibility programme.

“At Gradwell, we are incredibly proud to support Piers. Pier’s drive and refusal to be defined by his circumstances completely humbles me and everyone else at Gradwell Communications.”

Piers Gilliver first tried the sport of wheelchair fencing in 2010 at his local fencing club in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and he joined the British Disabled Fencing Association in 2011. Five years later Piers went on to make his Paralympic debut in 2016 winning silver, which was an incredible achievement.

Commenting on the renewed sponsorship, Piers Gilliver said,

“I am thrilled to announce that Gradwell Communications will be my Lead sponsor for the next four-year cycle, supporting me through to the Tokyo 2020.

“I welcomed Gradwell Communications on-board as a sponsor prior to the Rio 2016 Games and their support proved invaluable, giving me additional funds with which to boost my training programme.”

“I am really excited to continue this relationship as I work towards Tokyo 2020 and my target of turning second place into first place!”
