New kit thanks to firm’s donation

Posted onPosted on 16th Dec

Mansfield Town Football Club u13s performance team has been awarded £999 through the Persimmon Homes Community Champions Scheme, which donates up to £64,000 to good causes across the UK every month, to buy a new kit.

Fred Coggeran, Mansfield Town head of youth performance on behalf of the u13s, said: “Although part of Mansfield Town, we are a true grassroots team rather than an academy and, therefore, completely self-funded.

“We have had the same kit for two years and as the team has moved to 11-a-side the squad has increased, both numerically and physically. This donation will fund a new kit and is a wonderful boost to the team.”

Under The Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme, the Nottingham regional business provides financial support of up to £1,000 to two local charities or good causes every month.

Neil Follows, managing director for Persimmon Homes Nottingham, added: “Community Champions is all about supporting the local community.”

DL Football Coaching (pictured) also received a donation to help deliver free training sessions to children in Hucknall and Carlton.
