News and Projects that the Trust Has Funded
Leominster Minors Girls Under 9's Look And Play The Part
Leominster Minors Girls Under 9’s football team is celebrating more than just their latest fair play award thanks to funding received from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust.
The team applied to the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust and received nearly £500, which has been used to buy the girls all weather training jackets and the hire of an indoor facility during the winter months so they could continue training.
Kathryn Tisdale for the team commented “We wanted to get the girls some jackets so they looked more professional at away team events and also to keep them warm. We approached the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust for funding as we also wanted to continue with training. With winter approaching the only way this could happen was with indoor training which is quite expensive, and as it stood it wasn’t something the team could afford.”
“The funding has meant so much to the team we simply can’t thank the Trust enough! The jackets give the girls such a confidence boost before a game because they look and feel the part before even setting foot on the pitch, and having the opportunity for indoor training has done absolute wonders for them. We even ended the season with the most points that we have had compared to previous seasons.”
John Garbutt Chairman of the Trust said “Encouraging healthy recreation amongst children is extremely important and as one of the Trusts four objectives we were more than happy to help. The fact that the team has ended the season with more points than previous seasons just goes to show that practice really does make perfect.”
Leominster Minors Girls under 9’s has been going for 3 years and currently has 11 girls playing for them. They are a family oriented team and if anyone is interested in joining they are more than welcome and should contact Kathryn Tisdale.
