Thorncliffe Junior Football Club
We are always proud to support local causes and when the opportunity arose to sponsor a local junior football team, we jumped at the chance. Based in High Green, Sheffield we contributed sponsorship money to help the club cover the costs of some sportswear.
Ecclesfield Red Rose Junior Football Club
Another local grassroots football success story is Ecclesfield Red Rose based in north Sheffield. We were lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to sponsor the team which has helped provide some of the boys with tracksuits.
