Hire specialist pledges support for youth sporting teams

GAP has confirmed it will be sponsoring a number of youth sporting teams for the fourth year running.

The plant hire specialist will provide funding to Crowborough Athletic FC (youth football teams), Dalziel Rugby Club (youth rugby teams), Farsley Celtic Football Club (under-15 football team), Hyde Park Knights (under-12 football team), Orsett Park Royals Football Club (under-6 – under-16 football team) and Thatto Heath Crusaders (under-11 rugby team).

The money will help fund various costs throughout the season including kit, equipment and pitch hire or grounds maintenance.

Iain Anderson, MD at Glasgow-headquartered GAP said, “GAP is always keen to support the local communities we operate within, especially when it means helping to inspire children and young people within those communities. The fact that we are in a position to be able to continue our youth teams sponsorship this year is fantastic.

“Playing in sports teams teaches youngsters a lot of key life skills, such as communication, responsibility and, of course, working in a team, which will help them as they grow up, even beyond playing sports. We wish all the teams the very best of luck in their respective seasons this year.”
