08/03/2011: Whalley Juniors celebrate latest win

Young footballers in Whalley have won a new training kit, thanks to Electricity North West...

Whalley Juniors under 11s team were presented with the new kits by the region’s electricity distribution company as part of its ongoing intiative to support local communities.

Mick Dawes, who works for Electricity North West as a Design and Construction Manager, helps manage the team and applied to the company for funding.

Mick said: “The donation from Electricity North West has enabled us to buy new winter training tracksuits for all of the boys. They’re all absolutely delighted with them and the kits are already being well used – especially during the recent cold weather.

“We’re currently top of the East Lancashire Football Alliance yellow league with 15 wins and a draw from 16 matches. We’ve coached the boys since they were six years old and this is our best start to a season yet, so we’re hoping to continue our run of good results and get promoted.”

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 Whalley Juniors is a great example of this initiative.

“We work hard to keep electricity going to customers’ homes to keep them warm in winter, and these new tracksuits will help keep this young team warm outside in the winter months too.”

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.
