04/03/2011: Brand new kit for Gillibrand Warriors

Young footballers playing for Chorley’s Gillibrand Warriors are celebrating their latest win – a brand new kit from Electricity North West...

The region’s electricity distribution company has sponsored the team, following a request from a member of staff whose son plays for the Warriors.

Bev Morris, who works at Electricity North West’s Preston office, applied for funding for new kits for the under 8s and under 12s team. She said: “I heard that the company was starting to make donations to local clubs and community projects so I asked for funding for the team.

“My husband is the manager of the under 12s, and my son plays for them too. I collect subs and organise fundraising for the club as well so we’re all heavily involved. I’m very pleased that we’ve got this sponsorship and the lads are all happy with the new kit.”

The under 8s play in the Mid Lancs Colts Junior Football League, and the under 12s are third in the Central Lancs Junior Football League Premier division, having only been promoted last season.

Electricity North West’s Customer Strategy and Regulation Director, Paul Bircham, said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to help out this young team as part of our support for local communities. Providing funding for schemes such as the Warriors is a great example of this initiative and we hope to help more groups in future based on suggestions from our staff.”

Electricity North West owns, operates and maintains the region’s electricity distribution network, providing power to 2.4 million homes and businesses in the North West.
