Creeting St Peter-based Poundfield Products has launched its sponsorship of a local youth football club with not one, but two, victories.
Concrete specialist Poundfield Products, which is now part of SigmaRoc PLC, an AIM-listed company, has a record of supporting local community projects and when operations director Paul Sheppard heard that one of the youth teams in his local village was struggling for funds, he was able to call his employers to help out.
Poundfield Products donated money to the Barham Athletic under-10s to pay for new kit for the season. And in the first games of the season, the first team won 5-0 and the reserves 2-1.
Mr Sheppard said: “As a company with its roots in Suffolk and with our staff coming from many of the local communities around our manufacturing base, we are passionate believers in supporting positive initiatives like this one.”
