Avalon announces alliance with pro golf coach Neil Evans

Avalon, one of Europe’s leading providers of pre-paid funeral plans, has announced a sponsorship alliance with the top European golf coach, Neil Evans.

Under the agreement, Avalon’s branding will appear on clothes worn by Neil at golf tournaments and on the BMW car he uses at PGA (Professional Golfers’ Association) tournament processions. Winners of competitions involving Neil will receive golf related prizes from Avalon. Neil will promote Avalon’s services through his website.

As a PGA Professional, Neil has worked at prestigious resorts such as Pinhieros Altos in Portugal, the Mizuno Training Academy in Germany and The Warwickshire in the UK. With over 20 years’ experience in the sport, Neil has coached at The Open Championship seven times.

Speaking about the alliance, Jason Gardner, head of Europe at Avalon, said: “Neil Evans is one of the most respected golfing professionals in Europe, so it’s fantastic to be working with him. He has a big presence at PGA tournaments and he’s very supportive of our services. This alliance is a great fit for both parties.”

Neil, who also runs his own golf school, commented: “It’s important to be aligned with companies like Avalon. The service it provides to its customers is second-to-none. The company is one of the most respected funeral plan providers in Europe.”

Avalon recently opened a new Spanish office in Turre, Almeria, to meet growing demand for its plans across the region. In the last six months, the company has seen a 500 per cent increase in enquiries in Almeria. The new office will enable residents to visit Avalon in person to discuss their funeral plans.

The Turre office, which is equidistant from Avalon’s offices in Costa del Sol and Algorfa, enables customers in the area to enjoy a personal, localised service.

Avalon protects customers from rising funeral costs and the worry of arranging a funeral when the time comes, which can be complex outside the UK. Avalon’s three comprehensive packages, Balmoral, Windsor Way and Britannia, are available in Spain, Portugal and Tenerife. Alternative plans are available for customers residing in Cyprus, Malta and Turkey.
