Orange sponsors national charity’s new football kit
04 May 2012
Orange has pledged support to Swanswell’s football team by sponsoring a new kit ahead of a special tournament next week.
The telecommunications company has paid for new shirts, shorts and socks, which means the team – whose players include service users and team members from the national charity – will look the part for many seasons to come.
Swanswell’s first game in the new kit will be a five-a-side tournament involving teams from a number of organisations working with people affected by alcohol or drugs misuse in Birmingham.
It’s been organised by Changes UK and will take place on Friday 11 May 2012 between 11am and 4.30pm at Power League on Sedgemere Road in Yardley.
Trevor Bedford, Operations Manager for Swanswell in Birmingham, said: ‘The health and social benefits of playing team games like this really make a difference to people on their journey towards recovery from alcohol or drug misuse.
‘With that in mind, we’re delighted that Orange have been able to sponsor our new kit, giving people an added incentive to do well and feel well.
‘There’s always a great atmosphere at this tournament – we’re always really encouraged by the interest and support from our service users and staff every year. Whatever the result, it will be a thoroughly enjoyable day.’
