22.01.16 - Mick George Ltd turns up the heat at Eynesbury Rovers
Formed in 1897, local amateur football club Eynesbury Rovers FC is set to renovate its clubhouse facilities thanks to investment from the Mick George Community Fund.
The club, which now operates nine teams between under 12-21 age categories in addition to the first team competing within the UCL Premier Division have recognised the importance of producing an infrastructure to support its expanding network.
The volunteer lead initiative will see works on the leaking roof, bad lighting, dilapidated furnishing and inadequate kitchen and toilet amenities. Primarily the funds from Mick George Ltd will be specifically utilised for installing a new heating system, consisting of two boilers and 17 radiators to provide heat and hot water throughout the premises.
Matt Plumb, Chair of Eynesbury United FC said: ‘’The grant from the Mick George Community Fund is going to make a tremendous difference to our clubhouse and members. The clubhouse is in a very bad state of repair and needs serious money spending on it to make it an attractive place that local residents want to visit.’’
The principal aim once complete, is that the facilities will become a central hub for the local community to gather, hosting private parties, groups and clubs, day or night.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Having established numerous partnerships with local, grass roots, sports clubs, Mick George Ltd are aware that many of these charitable organisations such as Eynesbury Rovers FC simply don’t have the resources available to complete such projects.’’
Stump continued: ‘’Much like our business, we rely on the support of our loyal customer base and particularly the local communities in which we operate. This is our opportunity to do likewise and give something back whilst supporting the development of local talent which we are always keen to be involved in.’’
