Education supplies Company sponsors local children's football club

Monday 20th June 2016

Trowbridge Town Warriors U8’s football team were overjoyed last week as they were presented with kit from their new sponsor

Trowbridge-based The Consortium went along to Trowbridge Town FC at Woodmarsh to present the young boys with new shirts, training tops, goal posts and footballs!

Football coach Tammy Ward was delighted: “The boys are so happy with their new kit and we are all very grateful to The Consortium for their generosity. The team is looking forward to playing next season and showing their new kit off.”

Understandably, the boys couldn’t wait to test the new kit out and shot some goals with staff from The Consortium – in front of their proud parents.

Joanne Kent from The Consortium explained why they wanted to help: “When we were approached by the youngsters’ football club, we just saw it as another opportunity to support a great local cause and use our resources to give something back.”

And the boys weren’t the only ones to receive a gift as Tammy had a surprise of her own – a framed football shirt, with The Consortium logo on, signed by the whole boys’ team!

“This was a wonderful gift,” continued Jo, “and it has pride of place in our Reception for all to see!”

The specialist education and care supplier, whose head office is based in Swindon, maintains a proactive approach to charitable causes. Last year the Company raised over £9,000 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance as part of a wider community programme, and has part-funded an award-winning literacy programme with the Bath Rugby for the last three years.
