Thorntons has been announced as a sponsor for the forthcoming WUKF World Karate Championships in Dundee.
The championships will be held at Dundee Ice Arena from June 14-17.
The event is being organised by the World Union of Karate Federations (WUKF) and Dundee-based Kanzen Karate Scotland as the host organising team.
The event, one of the largest of its kind, was secured by Kanzen Karate in March 2017, and is predicted to generate a significant boost to the local economy.
Sensei Roy O’Kane, WUKF Dundee 2018 committee chairman, said: “I am proud that the WUKF World Karate Championships is being backed by Thorntons, one of the biggest legal firms in Scotland.
“The city is gearing up for what will be a great showcase for Dundee.
‘‘With more than 20 countries registered so far, the event will bring people from far and wide to our city.”
