SUPPORTING LOCAL CLUBS
Many companies already donate to sports clubs to support the good work they do. These donations help clubs to paper over the cracks (sometimes literally) and clubs need help year on year. With The Sport Community’s approach, a company donation can be used to access grants to improve facilities and equipment. This approach creates lasting change and levers in significant additional investment. A £5,000 donation could bring in up to £50,000 in grants.
FK Group – a nationwide construction firm – worked with us to look at ways it could boost its profile and engage staff in the vicinity of its new head office in south Manchester.
We implemented a series of boxing programmes at the nearby Timperley ABC. We used FK’s donations to ensure free boxing sessions for women on the Broomwood estate. We also organised an elite youth boxing competition with competitors travelling from Ireland to take on local talented fighters.
