Workers at a supermarket in Bradley Stoke have pulled together to support a local youth football team.
The Under-16 Girls’ team at Bradley Stoke Youth FC will be playing in new kit next season, thanks to the generosity of staff at the town’s Tesco Extra store.
Tesco customer experience manager Joe Kilpatrick said:
“We’re delighted to be able to support an organisation that is really local to the store and at the heart of the local community.”
Receiving a cheque for £670, Martin Lee, community officer at BSYFC and manager of the U16 Girls’ team, said:
“Many thanks to Tesco Bradley Stoke for supporting the U16 Girls’ team for next season and providing a new kit for the squad. BSYFC is an FA Charter Standard Community Club with 20 teams, so the donation is very helpful and much appreciated.”
