Lightning announce tasty new sponsor!

The Smith Recycling MK Lightning’s newest sponsor, Giovanni’s Downtown Gelato, knows all about the excitement of serving up delicious ice-cold entertainment. The Milton Keynes business, soon to announce more locations, is the latest in a long line of local organisations backing the Lightning this new Elite League season.

Giovanni’s offers an impressive range of more than 80 indulgent flavours of hand-made Gelato, Sorbetti and Frozen Yoghurt, as well as freshly baked Belgian Waffles and Gelato Shakes, from their flag-ship thecentre:mk store. All Gelato is served by Gelatistas from the unique Gelato truck – described by the team as a taste for the eyes, as well as the taste-buds! And with Gelato containing 50-60% less fat than ice-cream, it’s a treat for the waist-line too!

Commenting on the new partnership, Carmelo Gristina, Managing Director of the award-winning Giovanni’s, said: “I have been a fan of MK Lightning for the past three years, so I am delighted and very proud to announce that we are sponsoring the club this season. This joint partnership brings a number of exciting opportunities.

“The team’s recent success has been a fantastic achievement and I congratulate them on moving to the Elite league. It’s a great time for the club and fans.

“We will be cheering on the team and wishing them all the best for the season ahead.. Let’s go Lightning! ”

Giovanni’s will sponsor a rinkside barrier board and has also gifted a voucher as a prize for the Chuck a Duck matchnight game. Fans can try Giovanni’s at thecentre:mk on Silbury Arcade, from 9.30am until late, Monday to Saturday, and from 11am until 5pm on Sundays.
