A new partnership between two of Stirling’s leading organisations is set to boost sports coaching and provision in the area over the next five years.
Active Stirling and the Ogilvie Group have announced a five-year agreement to help Active Stirling’s sports, schools and coaching teams get on the road and into schools and communities across the Stirling area.
Ogilvie will lease a fleet of vehicles - seven vans and a car - to Active Stirling to help the Sports Development, Active Schools and Coaching teams travel as they deliver services to 41 Primary and seven Secondary schools across the area.
As part of the agreement, Ogilvie Group - winner of the 2012 ‘Customer Service Award’ from leading trade publication Fleet News - will provide, service and maintain the Active Stirling company fleet, in the knowledge that the vehicles will make a direct contribution to Stirling communities, helping more people get more active more often.
Jill Stephen, customer service director, Ogilvie Fleet, said: ‘Ogilvie Group was keen to get involved by acknowledging the work carried out by Active Stirling in the local schools and community. We are supporting those ambitions by providing the necessary servicing, maintenance repairs and tyres over the duration of the five-year contract, thereby ensuring our vehicles are always fit for purpose.’ Andrew Bain, chief executive at Active Stirling added: ‘The introduction of a new company fleet will help us achieve our long-term business goals across the Stirling Council area as well as our vision to be a national leader in sport and physical activity including the delivery of high quality opportunities to the Stirling communities.
