Mountsorrel Juniors under 11s Lions football team are hoping to score in their new kit, thanks to a £824.44 donation from Tarmac’s Mountsorrel Quarry.
As a small non-profit organisation, Mountsorrel Juniors Football Club relies on donations to fund new kit and equipment, as well as help from dedicated volunteers.
With the funds provided by Tarmac, the club could replace the tired uniform worn by the under 11s team (primary school year 6) with a brand-new orange kit, which will help them stand out in the Foxes Sunday League.
Jon Brewis, Mountsorrel Juniors Under 11s Lions coach, said: “We are really grateful to Tarmac for agreeing to sponsor the team. The players love their new kit. Volunteer football clubs rely on donations of this kind to continue to provide football in a fun and safe environment. We really appreciate the support.”
Rob Lees, senior area operations manager at Tarmac, said: “We’re proud we could help the Mountsorrel Junior Lions Under 11s squad through this donation to fund their new kit. We’re always looking for ways we can help groups in the area like Mountsorrel Juniors as part of our role in the local community.
“We’re wishing the Under 11s Lions the best of luck in their upcoming matches in the Foxes Sunday League, and hope their new kit is a winning combination.”
