Support for junior football club project from Kingdom

imageKingdom has donated to a junior football club to help them raise money to complete a project during the school summer holidays.

The Year 5 Wilberfoss Mavericks Junior football team has signed up to the Humberside Police Lifestyle Project. This was set up in 1989 to challenge young people to get involved with their communities, using their spare time to make a real difference, especially over the school summer holidays.

Adam, Ethan, Charlie, Georgia and Archie have formed the Wilberfoss United Lifestyle Group, and their project is to raise the funds to create an access route between their school playing fields and the larger village playing fields behind. The reason for this is so that the school can use the village playing fields and the Wilberfoss Mavericks Junior Football Club can use the school grounds on a Saturday and Sunday.

Because there is a dyke between the two fields, their plan is to build a timber bridge and install a secure gate to allow not only the children and adults to cross, but also to allow the village playing fields lawn mower to cross too.

The group of school children are hoping to raise £1500 in order to do this through fun events, stalls and sponsorship, and have asked sponsors to give £100 towards the fund. In return, they will install a permanent sign on the bridge with the sponsors’ company logo on. In addition, they are planning other fund raising events including a cake stall at their school and a sweet and drinks stall during the village football training on a Saturday morning.

Back in October, Kingdom announced that they were to sponsor the Wilberfoss Mavericks Under 11s football team for the season by purchasing their kit, and in return Kingdom’s logo was displayed on the front and back of the kit. Kingdom also arranged for the team to attend a Wigan vs Leeds match at the DW Stadium in Wigan last year as VIP day guests. The Mavericks are managed by Kingdom Director Mark Wallace.
