More than 100 local children have benefitted from a promotion to encourage them to give football a go.
Cambridge Tyres were recently given 120 promotional footballs by a supplier and asked to put them to good use.
The business approached our club, wondering whether the balls could be used by our hundreds of junior players.
Unfortunately, the balls did not meet specs for matches or for use in training but we knew they could provide heaps of fun for youngsters wanting to give football a try.
Through club chairman Steve Thomas, the balls were distributed to grateful schools in our area including Cambridge East, Roto o Ragi School, Leamington Primary, Kiapaki School, Cambridge Primary, Hautapu School and Cambridge Kindergarten.
“They went down a treat – everyone was very happy with them,” chairman Steve said.
Our club is grateful to Cambridge Tyres for giving us the opportunity to help our community.
