Keeler Sponsors Windsor Boys’ School Rowing Team
As part of its ongoing commitment to the Windsor community where it is based, Keeler Limited has paid for the kit for Windsor Boys’ School’s rowing club, known as the ‘Boat Club’.
“Rowing is the school’s flagship sport – incredibly rare for a state comprehensive school,” says the school’s Director of Rowing Mark Wilkinson. “Yet, despite the school’s status we are blessed with a host of national champions and international representatives and a host of well-qualified and dedicated coaches. Rowing is in our blood and all the boys at the school are given the opportunity to row,” added Mark.
Keeler, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment, has been located in Windsor for over ninety years. Tucked away in a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighbourhood, the company has close ties to the local community and is often involved in sponsoring local organisations and causes.
The company’s Managing Director Abbas Sotoudeh, who presented the jerseys to the rowing team, said, “It’s a genuine privilege to be able to help out the Windsor Boy’s School in this way. Being a comprehensive, it doesn’t have the funds available to it that many private schools have; despite that, the school’s Boat Club is highly regarded and very successful. If we can play even a small part in that success by covering the cost of their rowing kit, it makes us very happy.”
