9 Celebrities Spotted In Scimitar

As one of the leading custom sportswear manufacturers in the UK, Scimitar have developed a reputation for quality products amongst various sectors, becoming the go to company for charity and corporate wear.
With an endless list of premium clientele, it was inevitable that A-List celebrities would be spotted in technical garments manufactured by Scimitar, so we’ve picked out nine of the very best for you!


Prince Harry

As far as celebrities go, it doesn’t get much bigger! In 2013, the Warrior Games were held in Colorado Springs. Supported by Help for Heroes, Prince Harry showed his support by visiting the event and participating in the exhibition sitting volleyball game.
The Warriors Games inspired Prince Harry to the conception of the Invictus Games, which have been hosted in the UK, the USA and Canada (as of next year).

Jenson Button

Help for Heroes run 4 Recovery Centres across the UK, which was surprised with a visit from F1 World Champion Jenson Button back in 2013.
Jenson was able to see the rehabilitation work that the centres were doing first hand, before jumping on a spin bike to participate in a light training session.

Rachel Riley

As part of the 2016 Women V Cancer Ride The Night event, Rachel Riley & Susie Dent of Countdown fame became ambassadors of the campaign, helping drive participation to a record-breaking level.

Cyclothon UK was the brainchild of ex-Bath & England rugby union player, who described it as the “opportunity to raise funds, build a team and have a great day out in a safe track environment”.
