The Berkeley Group partners with British Ski and Snowboard

18th October 2011

British Ski and Snowboard (BSS) is delighted to announce that it is entering in to an agreement with the Berkeley Group, one of the UK's leading residential property developers, which will see Berkeley provide financial support to Britain's elite Freestyle, Freeski athletes and back some of Britain's leading young sportsmen and women.

Commenting on the new arrangement David Edwards CEO of BSS said:

"We are delighted that the Berkeley Group has chosen to support our Freestyle Freeski team for the next twelve months. We have high hopes for this particular group of athletes. With Berkeley's help we can provide them with the correct preparation for the 2012 Youth Olympic Winter Games and begin our preparation for the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in 2014. Podium finishes are a real possibility now that we have the help that we needed.

Rob Perrins, Group Managing Director of The Berkeley Group said:

"We are proud to be associated with an organisation that plays such a key role in British sport and in developing young people. The Berkeley Foundation is all about helping young people realise their potential and sport is often a fantastic way to achieve this"
