Last week the SecureCloud+ team participated in the RAF Festival of Football by fielding their very own 5-aside team. In the festival there were 24 teams participating comprised of various RAF sponsors and RAF station football teams. The festival was held at the Fives Soccer Centre Trafford in Manchester.
It was fantastic to see various RAF football teams participating alongside the sponsors during the day. During the later stages of the festival, SecureCloud+’s Rob Gittins completed the second draw for the RAF Challenge Cup which was widely anticipated by the attendees. Amongst the attendees were Flt Lt Phil Wilmot of the RAF FA Sponsorship team and Wg Cdr Neil Hope, the FA Council member for the RAF FA.
The festival had a great turnout with numerous members of the RAF family attending the day to support their RAF stations. RAF Marham claimed the title after a great comeback in the final against RAF Halton coming from 2-0 down and winning 3-2 with a last-minute goal. RAF Benson won the plate defeating RAF Waddington on penalties in that final.
SecureCloud+ are pleased to have attended the Women in Aviation Club Dinner hosted by The Royal Air Force Club. The event was held as a celebration for women in service. The Royal Air Force are delighted with the contribution of women throughout the history of the Service and held the formal dinner in their honour. The evening was one of celebration as many servicemen and women attended as well as members of the RAF Women’s Rugby Union.
In attendance of the event was Air Marshal Sue Gray who was the ambassador of Women in Aviation. She recently became the RAF’s first female 3* officer and the most senior female military officer in the British Armed Forces. She was joined by other trailblazing women, who have helped push the limits of possibility for women in the Royal Air Force in recent years – challenging stereotypes across the service.
SecureCloud+ were in attendance showing our support as we have with our other outreach events such as regularly attending RAF Women’s Rugby Union matches as well as hosting the annual Women’s Rugby Festival at RAF Halton in its 3rd year running
SecureCloud+ have been named an official UKAF Rugby partner for the team’s participation in the International Defence Rugby Competition (IDRC). The Company’s partnership with the UKAF Rugby team is beneficial for all involved and extends their ongoing support of the RAF Rugby, especially with the upcoming RAF Girls Festival of Rugby.
In preparation for the tournament, SecureCloud+ hosted a pre-tour dinner with members of the UKAF Rugby team and their supporters. SecureCloud+ will also be providing the team with sporting accessories in preparation for their matches in Japan. Additionally, the competition will coincide with the Rugby World Cup, which is also being held in Japan and commences shortly after. Sgt Lee, Head coach of UKAF Rugby said, “I’m excited about taking the UK Armed Forces team out to compete in the IDRC and to add that it’s being held in Japan, just before the Rugby World Cup, is a huge bonus.”
SecureCloud+ is delighted to be playing a part in the build up to this event. Particularly as the Company feels that the tournament expresses the true excitement of participating in events outside of day-to-day armed forces duties.

Like SecureCloud+, CodeNation believe in the development of the next generation.
As a Company, we strongly believe in investing in our employees which is why we encourage our employees to enrol in courses and certifications to further their knowledge in their respective fields. Jack Wright from SecureCloud+ delivered a presentation as part of the CodeNation course earlier this week to showcase one of our Case Studies as part of the students’ cyber module. Chris from CodeNation said, ‘Jack specifically spoke in detail about cloud technologies. He went into great detail regarding the personal and private cloud and discussed the preference of a hybrid. Our juniors really got a lot out of the session and provided some really good feedback.’
Moving forward, SecureCloud+ will continually have an ongoing relationship with CodeNation whilst also looking to promote the recruitment of young minds that specialise in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
Earlier this week, SecureCloud+ CEO Peter Williamson had the opportunity to fly alongside Nick English from Bremont in his Broussard. The focus of the day was our continued support to the Jon Egging Trust and the inspiring work they do developing young people’s life and work skills. Nick English, co-founder of the award-winning British luxury watch brand – Bremont, flew the 1957 Max Holste MH-1621M Broussard aircraft as part of their contribution to raising funds for the Jon Egging Trust.
Peter Williamson said “The whole event was great. Due to Bremont’s generosity in providing yesterday’s event as an auction prize, it has enabled the trust to benefit and for our organisations, who have a similar ethos, to work together closer on community outreach projects.‘’
We look forward to working with the trust and their mission to inspire the young generation. For more information about the trust please visit https://www.joneggingtrust.org.uk/
