KEEN footballers from Nottingham’s East Leake Bantams have started the season with a fresh new kit, thanks to a donation from intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh.
A total of £680 was gifted from intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh to the East Leake Bantams ahead of the 2017/18 season. With this sponsorship, all 12 players in the Under-10s age group – a mix of boys and girls from the local area – have received brand-new full kit, including branded jackets, shirts, shorts and socks.
Nigel Wheatley, general manager of intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh, said: “Our staff at intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh support many causes across the city, from charity donations to completing volunteering days, and when we heard East Leake Bantams’ team of amazing footballers needed a new kit, we were delighted to help.
“We are really happy with the outcome – the team look so professional in their new intu kits and we are proud to be their sponsor for the new season.”
Allan Murfin, manager of East Leake Bantams’ Under-10 team, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the team at intu for their support to the team and generous donation. The whole process has been very simple, straightforward and the intu team have been very enthusiastic and keen to help where they can.
“The kit looks fantastic and we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from parents, staff and players who are all over the moon with it. Having a recognisable brand such as intu as our sponsor has given the team a new desire for continued success this season and I look forward to seeing the players out in their new kit this season.”
