Create Legacy

Aviva becomes Community Partner of St Johnstone FC

Three-year deal signed to support wellbeing in the local community.

The Community Partnership launched at the Scottish Premiership match on 7 October.

Aviva is proud to announce that it will be St Johnstone FC’s new Community Partner in a three- year deal which will focus on promoting wellbeing throughout Perth.

The partnership will see both organisations work closely together to bring to life a series of activities and events that will support wellbeing in the local community – from healthy eating to promoting active lifestyles.

The Community Partnership launched at the Scottish Premiership match against Celtic at McDiarmid Park on Sunday 7 October where the new branding was seen for the first time.

Aviva has a long history in Perth, so it makes perfect sense to join forces with St Johnstone and become their Community Partner.  We are proud to be part of the Perth community and what better way to show it than by linking up with the Saints to promote wellbeing and active lifestyles.

Aviva has a strong commitment to supporting the local communities where we are located.  We have some exciting plans ahead and can’t wait to bring them to life for the people of Perth and our employees.  We’re really looking forward to the next three years working closely with the club.

Andy Curran, MD of the Aviva UK Corporate business
Both Aviva and St Johnstone are major institutions within Perth. It is an exciting opportunity to work together to have a positive impact on the community.
