We’re delighted to announce our sponsorship of British handball team member – 38 caps no less – and 2012 Olympic hopeful Louise Jukes.
As our MD Lance Forman said, “ Here at Forman’s we are very excited about sponsoring Louise. As we are only 100 metres from the Olympic Park and have been involved in the Olympics for eight years this is a highlight for us”. He added, “Our business is about dedication, quality and skill to deliver hand- made artisan products”. Being an athlete needs all these skills and more and Louise is a huge inspiration to all of us here at Forman’s!”
Louise Jukes said “It is a great honour to be sponsored by Forman’s; their help makes the journey to the Olympic Games a million times easier and certainly less stressful. I’m able to focus 100 per cent on my training and preparations for 2012 thanks to their support. The amazing venue and location of Forman’s means that every-time I visit them I can see in front of me exactly what I’m striving for.”
Arthur Somerset, Director of Events said “We have met a lot of top Olympic athletes here over the past three years. This has inspired our Christmas Party theme, Twenty 12 days of Christmas, Five Gold Rings, that brings the athletes to your Christmas event. It’s fun, inspirational and brings the excitement of the forthcoming 2012 Olympics to your event as well as raising funds for our wonderful athletes.”

Our connection goes back to when we served our famous London Cure Smoked Salmon at the Handball Arena in the Olympic Park when it was opened earlier this year by Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.
Our yard was turned into an East London recreation of a summer music festival last week for the filming of the video for Coke’s 2012 Olympics anthem. Mark Ronson has sampled the sounds of sport, the groans, grunts, the thunks and slaps of top atheletes competing, to make a track to soundtrack the sponsor’s Olympics campaigns.
Ronson, who said it was a “no-brainer” to try to be involved, travelled to the athletes’ home grounds to record them.
Britain’s Darius Knight, a 21-year-old table tennis player, cringed as Ronson told Coca-Cola’s global London 2012 marketing launch, that his “very unusual grunt” will now be immortalised in the song.
The chart star said: “Darius has this very unusual sound. It is great. Sometimes he uses it to put off his opponents and sometimes it is a sound of victory – to me it sounded like James Brown so I knew I would use that.”
Ronson said he turned Kseniya Vdovina, a 400m sprinter from Russia, into “the bionic woman” by attaching microphones to her body.
The best sounds from Mexican taekwondo star Maria Espinoza were “the screams and the grunts that she made when she was kicking the c*** out of somebody”, according to Ronson.
