Following its successful relationship with the Royal Academy of Arts, Chestertons has pledged its support to another of the capital's most important cultural organisations – Royal Museums Greenwich, which incorporates Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Queen's House and Royal Observatory Greenwich.
To kick-off the new relationship, Chestertons sponsored the 'Chestertons Easter Egg Hunt at Cutty Sark' over the Easter weekend, and gave away free chocolate treats to all children that completed the hunt, while also sponsoring an outdoor cinema event in August and will be hosting a drinks reception for local residents at the newly-refurbished Queen's House in the summer.
Giles Milner, Marketing Director, comments: "The communities in which we operate are very important to us, and we like to use our partnerships with organisations such as Royal Museums Greenwich to offer something a bit different – discounted entry to attractions, innovative events, special exhibitions or fun competitions for instance – to hopefully introduce new people to the institutions and charities we support. We've had real success in the past with our other community partnerships and we're confident this latest link-up will be a continuation of that success."
Nimish Patel, Sales Manager of the Greenwich & Blackheath office, adds: "One of the many attractions for people considering moving to or already living in Greenwich and Blackheath is this superb array of museums right on our doorstep. We're excited to partner with these iconic and historic attractions, and we hope to be able to open up new, fun ways for local people to enjoy them through the events and promotions we're planning. The Chestertons Easter Egg Hunt was a great way to kick things off and families visiting Cutty Sark this Easter really enjoyed it."
Redvers Lee, Senior Manager of Corporate Partnerships and Development, Royal Museums Greenwich, says: "We are delighted that Chestertons has joined Royal Museums Greenwich as a Corporate Member and we look forward to working with them to engage and enrich the local community in Greenwich."
Royal Museums Greenwich becomes another of Chestertons' Community Partners, joining the Royal Academy of Arts, London Welsh Rugby Club in Richmond, Richmond Cricket Club, Dogs Trust and St Mungo's, as well as the annual Calling London Winter Coat Drive among other good causes.
As well as the Chestertons' Easter Egg Hunt at Cutty Sark, sponsored events planned at the Royal Museums include special Nomad Cinema outdoor film screenings at the Queen's House on 11 and 12 August. The corporate membership package has initially been agreed to run until spring 2017.
