Founder Sharon and Director Jools both have achieved success in sporting fields on and for the Isle of Man, which underpins their commitment to supporting island sport now and into the future.
Sharon is a keen cyclist and competed in the 2002 Commonwealth Games. She was a long-serving member of Isle of Man Sport formerly the Isle of Man Sports Council, and Vice-Chair of the Sport Aid Committee with responsibility for running the Isle of Man Sport Institute facility between 2000 and 2012.
Thornton Chartered Financial Planners are proud to sponsor Will Draper, a professional middle-distance Triathlete living and training on the Isle of Man. Will started out as a cyclist winning the British National Championship when he was 12 and then the British National Madison championship on the velodrome when he was 16. Will is now in his fourth year racing as a triathlete.
We are also supporting Manx Professional Cyclist Tom Mazzone (bottom photo), who said:
“I look forward to building on a winning momentum into 2022, continuing to perform at the highest level and working hard to achieve my personal and team goals this season, some of which include international events such as the European UCI races, Tour of Britain and the Commonwealth Games. I know that I am the best that I have ever been going into 2022 and I am very confident that we will be able to achieve all these ambitions and much more.”
We are all following their seasons closely and are encouraging them every step of the way!
