A KIND donation has been given to a local youth football club, who have their eyes fixed on winning their division.
The Jubilee 77 under-7s team, which is managed by Graham Kind, has been supplied with new jackets and equipment by Amey, which provides highway maintenance on behalf of Hampshire County Council.
Amey’s support for the team, which is based at Fareham, was suggested by employee John Smith whose daughter plays for the team.
David Fawcett from Amey joined John for a training session and took the opportunity to hand over the new jackets as well as discussing the work Amey does across the UK.
Matt Garner, the manager of Jubilee 77 U7, said: ‘Amey’s support is a real boost to the team.
‘We are very grateful that John and David were able to join us and celebrate our partnership.
‘Clubs such as Jubilee 77 depend on the support of local business and Amey’s generosity has made a real difference to the team.’
Paul Anderson, account director for Amey, added: ‘We are delighted to support Jubilee 77 U7 team.
‘We have supported a number of youth teams over the past few years and are delighted that Jubilee 77 joins this group.
‘Working with young people is very important to us and has been an ongoing and integral part of our community initiatives.’
The club has also recently secured sponsorship funding from Howdens Depot at Segensworth.
Assistant manager James Lee said: ‘Our under-15 squad were looking for new kit and training clothing, so this and Amey’s kind donation could not have come at a better time.’
