Arnold Clark announced as Headline Sponsor for 40th Lenzie Gala 2019 Celebrations

Lenzie Gala, now known as GalaFest, will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2019. To mark this milestone, we are delighted to announce that our main headline sponsor for this year will be Arnold Clark’s Lenzie Vauxhall. Arnold Clark has been supporting the community of Lenzie since their branch opened in 2006, providing not only a valuable service but employment opportunities for people from the local and surrounding areas.

The support of businesses like Arnold Clark means that we are able to ensure that this year’s gala is bigger and better than ever before. We have lots to celebrate and have already secured a number of new acts and attractions which are going to make their debut at this event.

Lynne Jhangeer, Sponsorship Team Leader, had this to say:

‘We are very excited to be supported by Arnold Clark this year. Lenzie GalaFest proved to be a great event last year with many local businesses benefiting from the community coming out in record numbers to support on the day. Every year we have to start all over again to raise funds, however this support from Arnold Clark has bolstered our resources to deliver this event again for the community to celebrate our 40th anniversary.’

Arnold Clark is the UK’s largest independently owned, family-run car retailer. Established in 1954 by Sir Arnold Clark, the business boasts over 20,000 new and used cars in stock and represents over 27 manufacturers at over 200 branches throughout the UK. To complement the array of vehicles on offer, Arnold Clark also has 150 service centres, 40 accident and repair centres and 13 parts centres.

Alan Miller, Lenzie Vauxhall Branch Manager explained:

‘We’re delighted to support GalaFest. It’s a celebration of the people who make this such a great community and a fantastic way to thank our customers in the area. This year is particularly special, so we wanted to help the organisers to pull out all the stops with an unforgettable event. I was born and bred in Lenzie, so it means a lot to me personally, too.’

Lenzie GalaFest will be held at Lenzie Rugby Club on 24th August 2019. The procession will leave from Lenzie train station at 12pm and the event will run until 4pm. Lenzie GalaFest is a local event brought to you by Lenzie Community Council, a small team of dedicated volunteers and our wonderful sponsors, which is designed to bring together and celebrate the community of Lenzie. We are inviting all members of the community to secure a sponsorship package – find out more by contacting
