Groby branch scores with £500 birthday gift
Our Groby branch showed giving is much better than receiving in presenting a £500 cheque to a local junior football team.
A week before celebrating the third birthday of its arrival in the Leicestershire village the branch showed its continued support for Groby Juniors Under-8s by handing over the sponsorship money.
Last weekend building society staff and Harrison Murray Estate Agency colleagues visited the Groby Festival of Football at the local community college to make the presentation and cheer the players on during the tournament.
The cash helps two Groby Juniors teams be fully kitted out in match day strip and also with training gear. One side plays in tops featuring The Nottingham’s brand and the other with the Harrison Murray logo front and centre.
Groby Juniors U8s manager Ben Blount said: “The backing from The Nottingham and Harrison Murray’s is fantastic. They’ve been involved with us for a couple of years now and their generous contribution goes a long way. We are extremely grateful for their support.”
Building society manager Lesley Adcock added: “We have a firm commitment to being involved in our communities and everyone at the Groby branch is really proud to be associated with such a well-run local football club.”
Estate agency manager Zara Laxman added: “Linking up with Groby Juniors has been very fruitful for all - the youngsters are able to play their matches in decent kit, whilst at the same time the community get to see how passionate we are about local projects and clubs.”
