Environmental and social responsibility are very important to Helios. Throughout its history, Helios has been tightly collaborating with local communities and these efforts are still very important. We are specially focused on children, as we know that they are crucial for our joint, better future.
Top Basketball Drive in Slovenia
The young Helios Suns the best in Slovenia
Helios basketball school and youth drive includes over 700 children and is therefore the biggest in Slovenia. Season 2015/2016 was one of the most successful years, as Helios Suns youth team was the best in Slovenia. Beside the regular season, youth categories also play at the “School of basketball” tournament, attend the Club picnic, organize a “Streetball tournament” and play qualifying games for the upcoming season.
Helios was the only basketball club in Slovenia which managed to participate in every single final tournament (in all categories). Head of the youth section in Helios Suns Dejan Čikić says that the youth sections had a really fantastic year. Their results prove that we are still progressing every year, while representing the name of club and sponsor Helios inside and outside Slovenia.
Second national title for the first team of Helios Suns
For the second time in history, First team of Helios Suns claimed the Slovenian national basketball title. This was also the first home court victory in this year’s final series. Although it came unexpectedly, the title was well deserved. Again, there was not a single seat available at the Domžale Sports Hall since the fans filled every corner and helped their team to the victory. MVP of the final series Marjan Čakarun first congratulated his teammates since not many people believed they could achieve this success and later added that home court was decisive in this final match. Helios players presented high quality of basketball.
Rainbow of Smiles
At Helios we follow closely the situation and events in our environment, and strive to act in a socially responsible manner within programs where the support of companies is needed the most.
Thus, we organized charity program “Rainbow of smiles” for children, where we support schools, kindergartens and help in situations that itself call for support, such as the “Godparents” project, SOS association and the refugee crisis.
As coatings are our passion we like to relate colors and paint with art, so we cooperate with artists and support their inspiration. The latest projects were was a cooperation with Natan Esku, who painted the façade close to our headquarters in Slovenia. The façade is painted in his recognizable style and with the elements related to our products.
