Texas United Sponsorship

At CAS, we believe giving back to our community is a vital part of running a responsible and successful company.

One way we can do this is through sponsorship, and we’re delighted to sponsor Houston-based soccer club Texas United.

Our sponsorship focuses on the Under-14’s team. As a Premier League team, the players are called upon to travel to ‘away games’ throughout the season … and given the size of the USA, this can become a costly undertaking as you might imagine!

Indeed, the team has travelled away to play games as far afield as Tulsa, Oklahoma, Baton Rouge, Louisiana and even Plano, Texas (a round trip of over 500 miles!).

Texas United LogoSupporting the team through sponsorship means that every player, no matter their financial situation, gets to enjoy the experience of travelling with their team-mates. We think this is important, because each trip is about so much more than just football. It’s a chance for young players to mature, and enjoy a bonding experience that will stay with them long into their adult life. We help to cover the cost of travel, food and accommodation, ensuring the trips are a highlight in the club calendar.

We wish Texas United great success in the coming season!

Yorkhill Children's Hospital CAS sponsorship effort

Marathon des Sables sponsorship for CAS consultant

CAS were proud to sponsor one of our consultants to run the grueling Marathon des Sables as part of our ongoing Corporate and Social Responsibility commitments.

Well done Mike on a wonderful achievement and the sponsorship you raised for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow.

“I did it! Last week I completed the Marathon des Sables! In spite of weather, damaged feet, illness going round camp and the longest and toughest stage they’ve ever had, I crossed the finish line!

Thanks to everyone who sponsored me and also emailed me in the desert. My feet have nearly returned to their normal size, the blisters are healing nicely and I raised over £3,000.”

Race History

The race has its roots in the French concert promoter, Patrick Bauer’s 200-mile hike across the Sahara Desert in 1984. Determined to encourage others to experience a similar achievement, he organised the first Marathon de Sables in 1986.

You can read more about the history of the race on the official site.

“As this is something out of the ordinary and a bit ‘different’, I want to take the opportunity to try and raise some money for a charity which has some special significance to me.  I’ve chosen to run for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow who cared for my nephew and ultimately saved him after he was born with a life-threatening illness. Each year over 150,000 children from all over Scotland need to go to Yorkhill for care and attention as they are able to provide specialist services, staff and equipment which other NHS hospitals can’t.”
