Lewis Colling, director at LNJ, whose youngest step-daughter plays for the team, contacted manager/coach Lee Lawson when he heard the team were looking for a kit sponsor.
A conversation about the team and how LNJ could help led to the firm agreeing to sponsor 24 new full match kits, 1 full goalkeeper’s kit and a spare goalkeeper’s shirt.
Lee says he had been in the process of drafting out emails to local businesses prior to Lewis getting in touch and he is pleased that word of mouth brought a quick offer of support.
Once the order was delivered, the girls were presented with their new kit at a photoshoot alongside Lewis and his partners at LNJ, Colin Broomsgrove and John Iles.
Lee Lawson, BSYFC U12 manager/coach, said:
“The girls look fantastic in their new kit and are looking forward to the season. The coaches, girls and parents would like to extend their thanks to Lewis and LNJ for their generosity in sponsoring the team.”
“It’s excellent to see companies like this supporting the local community in which they do business.”
