Community & Sponsorship

As an organisation we support our local communities through charity work and sponsorship.

Bedford Blues: The Passion and Pride of Bedford

We are an official company sponsor of Bedford Blues Rugby Club.  The Blues are a semi-professional Rugby Union club currently playing in the RFU Championship and based at the Goldington Road ground in our hometown of Bedford.

Founded in 1886 in its original form as Bedford RUFC, the club has a deep rooted history within the town and large following of supporters. The club also does a fantastic job with the local and wider community of Bedfordshire through a wide range of outreach projects for youngsters, supporting grassroots development through rugby and non-rugby based games and installing values to promote a positive mentality on the games field, in the classroom and at home. 

This year we are proud to sponsor individual player Joe Howard who joined the club in August 2023 as back row forward. 

Star Rowing Club: Supporting Rising Stars

Star Women's Crew

We are delighted to continue our support of The Star Club, having been sponsors since 2012. The club originated in 1960 from RAF National Servicemen and Ceetak's company Chairman, Ray Baron, was a founding member over 60 years ago.

Since its fledgling days, the club has built a strong national reputation for sporting excellence and the club’s achievements include British, International and Olympic competitions.

Almost everyone at Star Club is a volunteer who works hard for the love of their club and the facilities they provide. Their commitment to the local community includes provisions for pupils from state schools (where a full time community coach is funded by two charitable trusts) and this is as important to Star Club for nurturing their top athletes.

Our support has also helped build a platform for competition success: This season, the senior women's crew qualified for Women's Henley in a very competitive year (with 42 crews vying for 16 slots) and managed some notable wins in local regattas. Also this year, the senior men qualified for the Wyfolds and finished the season with some amazing wins on the local circuit.

The club is also excited to watch a rising star who joined the 'Learn to Row' programme in 2022, has been accepted by the British Rowing Performance Development Academy. With the recent appointment of a new junior team coach, who has competed in the Commonwealth Games and Henley Royal Regatta, the future is bright for Star Rowing Club!

We are glad to be able to help and support our local sporting community.

HCOB Hockey Club: Netherlands

To strengthen our commitment in the local community close to our EU B.V. office in Elst, we have recently purchased training tracksuits for the 'MO 18-2' team at HCOB Hockey Club, which is the under 18s seconds team in the club and is made up of players aged between 15 and 18 yrs old. 

The HCOB Hockey Club was founded in August 2007 and has over 750 members with 51 teams, all taking part in competitions and tournaments. The club is a big part of the local community, especially with hockey being such a popular sport in the Netherlands. With sponsorship and funding, the club recently installed three all-weather pitches, helping to meet the growing demand of the sport in the area.

The team are delighted with their kit and they will play in nearly 30 matches for the 2023/24 season in the 3rd division of the KNHB (Koninklijkse Nederlandse hockey bond, Royal Dutch Hockey Association). With training up to 3 times a week, their Ceetak sponsored kit will be put to good use and we are delighted to support this passionate group of young people.

Supporting our local community Foodbank

As an organisation we support our local foodbank which is part of the Trussell Trust network of 428 foodbanks across the UK.

The work done by the foodbank in our local community is fantastic; they regularly provide food packages for over 500 people a month, and sadly the figure is only continuing to grow each year.

Additionally, we donate to the foodbank close to our Elst office in the Netherlands, Stichting Voedselbanken Nederland.Stichting Voedselbanken Nederland.

Both charities rely heavily on volunteers and donations to carry out the work they do, and are constantly up against rising operating costs, and increases in demand for their services.
