London Network for Pest Solutions (LNPS) has agreed to sponsor specialist pest control services for the world-famous Little Imps motorcycle display team based in East London.
As part of the sponsorship deal, LNPS will survey the team’s headquarters, provide five electric fly killing units, carry out internal and external rodent monitoring and deal with their squirrel problems.
Little Imps is a charity that gives children from deprived areas the opportunity to perform in motorcycle displays all over the world, including tattoos in Canada, Norway and Edinburgh. There are currently 38 display riders and a further 20 in training. Riders must be disciplined, dynamic and hardworking and the team has built a global reputation for excellence.
The new sponsorship deal follows LNPS’s funding of 36 new open-faced helmets for team members in 2022.
As a sponsor, LNPS managing director Paul Cooper was invited to attend a special event for sponsors and parents at the charity’s headquarters. He was able to watch the team perform some amazing manoeuvres including jumping through fire and creating moving human pyramids.
After the event, Mr Cooper met members of the team and was introduced to the key players behind the charity. It was during these discussions that he had the idea to also sponsor the pest control for the premises.
Mr Cooper explained: “Having lived and worked in East London all my life, I’ve always known about the Little Imps and marvelled at their abilities and bravery. It is truly inspiring to watch young people who are so dedicated to such a worthwhile pursuit.
“As a local company, LNPS is keen to help charities in our community in whatever way we can. One example of this is pest control. Little Imps is a charity that does great work in our community and so the more we can do to help reduce their overheads, the better. Taking away the burden of pest control means more of the money they generate can be ploughed back into training the next generation of display riders.”
