Adhesives experts bond with young people

Supported by Kent’s Lord Lieutenant and High Sheriff, Eurobond Adhesives is actively involved in backing the 2021 ‘Kent Challenger Games’ this June, with the event taking place at the Julie Rose Athletics Stadium in Ashford, Kent

Eurobond says that the aim of the games is to inspire each competitor regardless of their individual background or disability, and that the event is designed to help young people to overcome challenges that they may have in their lives. “The focus is on what these young people CAN do, rather than what they cannot do” says Eurobond managing director Simon Dearing. A whole range of different activities allows everyone to take part, irrespective of their individual personal circumstances.

Participants will get to do something out of the ordinary that is challenging, exciting, and which gives them a sense of achievement. “It will draw out their true inner strength, raise their self-esteem and encourage social skills that will help them to participate in society as more mature and responsible individuals. The social interaction and personal challenges they must overcome will vastly help improve their life chances too, and potentially increase employment opportunities. Everyone here at Eurobond Adhesives is proud to support the Kent Challenger Games and we wish each competitor a successful and happy Games” concludes Dearing.

The Kent Challenger Games are organised and run in association with Challenger Troop, one of the UK’s leading providers of youth and young persons’ engagement programmes. Run with a military ethos, Challenger Troop offers exciting and inspiring structured training programmes designed to build resilience, respect, courage and integrity in its participants. They instil self-discipline, raise confidence and aspirations whilst creating a sense of individual pride, raised self-esteem and personal fulfilment. Challenger Troops’ programmes target pupils in primary and secondary schools, academies, sixth-form colleges, further education colleges, PRUs and community partners.

Through their unique programmes, (which have been endorsed by the Department for Education), they enable each participant to fulfil their academic potential. By developing each individual’s personal, confidence and learning skills, Challenger Troop help them become more engaged contributors in class, successful learners and responsible citizens. Ultimately this improves their chances of employment and a fulfilling life in the future. To find out more visit
