Knight Air Products Ltd.
We are proud to support One Fylde as a local business supporting a local charity, having worked with them for the last five years, as a supplier.
The Champion Group has worked with the team at One Fylde for a number of years; and admires the difference that their hard work and dedication makes to adults and young people across the local community. Our team is proud to be able to sponsor ‘The Coach Award’ and make a contribution to support you in going on to achieve your future goals.
We have worked closely with One Fylde for several years now, and continue to be in awe of the work they do, and the relentlessly positive attitude shown by every member of the team that we have had the pleasure to meet.
When the opportunity to sponsor the award was presented to us, our response was an immediate, and resounding “Yes Please!” We do however, feel for those who have the near impossible challenge of choosing the individuals, and team, for an award from amongst such an amazing community of colleagues and the People they Support.
During our time working with One Fylde we have seen first-hand the positivity, support and care that is offered. It’s great to see the positive effect that One Fylde has on the residents and the local communities. Therefore, we didn’t hesitate to provide sponsorship when approached.

I have been continually inspired by the work that One Fylde do and the invaluable role they play in providing the support, assistance and opportunity for people with learning disabilities in and around the Fylde Coast. I think the OFCA’s are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the efforts of everyone involved and it is a pleasure to sponsor the “Mover of Mountains” award.
With 3 stores in the local area, we are very happy to support local events on the Fylde and wish everyone all the very best of luck!
It is our privilege to support One Fylde and its commitment to providing person-centred care and engaging activities to adults and children with learning disabilities and autism.
