Toyota Ireland, proud sponsors of four-time World and five-time European Amateur Boxing Champion Katie Taylor, presented her with a giant ‘wall of support’ from her fans.
Through a specially created Katie Taylor Fan Wall hosted on Toyota Ireland’s website Toyota amassed more than 1,000 goodwill messages over the past three weeks from fans around the country, and added more than 2,000 ‘likers’ to their popular Facebook page which has over 30,000 ‘likers’ to date. The messages of encouragement were compiled into a giant ‘fan wall’ and presented to Katie today in her boxing club in Bray, Co. Wicklow as she took a brief break from her training. Fans who wrote messages were included in daily prize draws for €50 Lifestyle Sports vouchers and weekly prize draws for pairs of signed Katie Taylor boxing gloves.
Speaking at the presentation of the Fan Wall to Katie, Ian Corbett, Marketing Operations Manager for Toyota Ireland said: “We’re very proud to have such an inspiring world-class athlete as Katie Taylor associated with the Toyota brand and acting as an ambassador for the new Toyota Auris Hybrid. Irish people are immensely proud of her achievements to date and we’re 100% behind her as she represents the country at the very highest level in her sport. The amount of messages we received for our Katie Taylor Fan Wall is testament of this support.”
Katie Taylor commented, “I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the amount of personal messages of encouragement from my fans, and would like to thank them all for this very special gift. It really means a lot to me. I’d also like to thank Toyota for putting it all together and creating this really unique fan wall for me on behalf of the fans.”
