Viking Charity

We are delighted that our chosen charity partner for 2018 is the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, the Lord's Taverners. We will be working alongside the charity on a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year to raise vital funds to give disadvantaged and disabled young people the chance to engage in sport and recreational activities in their communities.

Perry Norton, Head of Corporate Partnerships for the Lord’s Taverners, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen by Viking to be their official charity partner for 2018. Our programmes allow thousands of disadvantaged and disabled young people to take part in sport and the support of Viking will allow us to help even more. We are coming up with some really creative and innovative ideas to maximise the partnership, so watch this space!”
