Supporting The Community With Sponsorship
Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire Helps Young People In The Community.
This year Lucy Parker has been given a donation to help her raise funds towards the cost of an expedition to Tanzania in July next year.
Lucy’s first challenge was to walk the three peaks 26 miles which she did in an amazing 10 and a half hours. Lucy’s next challenge was to run the Great North Run. All the money she raised goes towards her expenses for the trip to Tanzania.
When Lucy gets to Tanzania she will be helping to improve the living conditions of some of the most vulnerable people in the country.
All of us at Greengates Builders Merchants would like to wish her all the best in all future challenges.
Greengates has also been supporting Mellor Juniors Football Club for the last seven years since the club started. Not only have we provided kits for 15 teams ranging from teams at U7’s to U16’s but we have put a lot of time and effort into helping support the club with volunteer work as team managers, club treasurer and secretary and also working on the pitch committee ensuring that the teams have decent pitches to play on each winter.
Each year Mellor Juniors spends approximately £15,000 on the pitches with funds mainly raised through a yearly golfing day followed by a sporting dinner which is held at Mytton Fold Hotel in May.
Through ticket sales and sponsorship of the programme sale of golf teams they are able to make enough money to keep the pitches in good repair.
We have also sponsored many junior football clubs in the Accrington area with coats and kits for their junior teams as well as sponsoring Accrington Stanley.
