Sunshine helps Glasgow take centre stage at Commonwealth Games

A Preston-based business has supplied traditional deck chairs for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Sunshine Events has provided more than 100 deck chairs and one giant deck chair for the Glasgow Green Live Zone.

Situated in the centre of Glasgow, the beautiful city park lies at the heart of the Games and is the go-to place to watch all the sport completely free. The opening ceremony was broadcast here to more than 25,000 local people and live festivities will be taking place including music, dance, comedy, craft and ceilidhs.

Live sport will also be coming to the park as the Marathon, Cycling Time Trial and Cycling Road Race start and finish here.

James Sandwell said: "All the team at Sunshine are very proud to be working with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and are delighted they chose a Preston-based firm to get involved. We are the UK's fun experts and we wish all the athletes the best of luck!" Ryan Dunlop, vision control manager for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, said: “When it came to organising the entertainment for the Green Live Zone, we had to be very careful about vetting the suppliers. We have very strict delivery time slots due to security reasons and Sunshine Events were extremely accommodating. They were always able to change something at the very last minute, they were competitively priced and their portfolio of previous clients is highly reputable.”
