What we do
Nov 04, 2019
We are delighted to announce that office technology supplier Midshire® has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Stockport County Community Foundation’s School Coaching Programme for a fourth consecutive year.
The Schools Coaching Programme seeks to expand Stockport County’s work away from Edgeley Park and out into the local community.
Run entirely by the not-for-profit Stockport County Community Foundation, the coaching programme works with local schools to engage children in safe, fun developmental activities around sport.
The Schools Coaching Programme works with Primary Schools in Stockport, Tameside, and the High Peak to deliver structured sports sessions to children of all ages and abilities. The main aim of the programme is to engage with as many children in the community as possible, giving them access to their local football club and other physical activities.
Stockport County players Sam Minihan, Paul Turnbull and Manger James Gannon are part of the twenty two coaches helping deliver the Midshire Schools Coaching Programme every week.
Dave Wardle, Stockport County Community Foundation Manager comments: ‘We are very proud to have Midshire supporting our Schools Coaching Programme once again. As we continue to develop all of our programmes, the sponsorship renewal comes at a great time for the Foundation.
“It’s fantastic to have the backing of such an outstanding company, one that supports so many charitable organisations in and around Stockport. Thank you to everyone at Midshire for their continued support once again.”
Group Brand & Marketing Communications Manager at Sharp Business Systems UK, Adrienne Topping says: “When it came to renewing our sponsorship agreement with the Stockport County Community Foundation we didn’t hesitate.
“The work the Foundation does with children in our local communities is vital to their development in areas like teamwork, but also in nurturing a love of sport within future generations.”
Adrienne concludes: “Midshire is now a part of Sharp Business Systems UK, which is fantastic for our service delivery and customers; it also means the foundation is now partnering with a local and global brand.”
The Community Foundation still have exciting opportunities for sponsorship available for other programmes being delivered. Give the team a call to find out more on 0161-286-8888 option 3 for further information.
