13/07/2011: Tameside pupils score with new kit

A local primary school will be kicking off the next few terms in style, with a new sports kits sponsorship from Electricity North West.

Sports teams in years five and six at Canon Johnson Primary School in Ashton-under-Lyne were in desperate need of new sports kits, with a range of competitions ahead of them.

The school prides itself on encouraging its pupils to reach their full potential, and with a successful lacrosse, cricket, football, netball and athletics squad, is delighted to have the support of a local business such as Electricity North West, which connects 2.4m households and businesses throughout the region to the power grid.

The new kits, which are to be worn by teams across all sports, arrived last week. Karen Collins, bursar at Canon Johnson, said: “We’re so pleased with the kits that were donated by Electricity North West. With some friendlies in the next few weeks it means that we can represent the school properly.”

Electricity North West is one of six UK distribution network operators and connects more than five million people in the North West to the grid.

Paul Bircham, customer strategy director for Electricity North West commented: “We were very happy to provide these kits for Canon Johnson and we wish them good luck for all their tournaments. We’ll be watching their successes over the coming terms.”
