Netball club scores new training coach

Kings College London Alumni Netball club, based in Brixton, have been able to fund a new training coach thanks to a little help from UK Power Networks.

The company, which delivers electricity to eight million homes and businesses across London, the South East and East of England, has given the club a much-needed £250 grant as part of its Team Sport Award programme.

It donated the money following an application from employee Rosemary Bridger, who plays as part of the first team and is the club’s kit secretary.

Rosemary said: “It felt amazing to win the award. The club is very excited to have a new coach and are incredibly grateful to receive such a generous donation. Many of the club members were surprised UK Power Networks supports teams in the community in such a great way.

“We only started the team about six years ago, and we have managed to build the club from one team, to over 40 members. This grant has helped us attain a coach to make sure we can keep improving, whilst keeping our subs low, which is key in keeping the club accessible and desirable.”

The Team Sport Award scheme is designed to encourage staff to volunteer in the community and is aimed at promoting healthy living, teamwork and developing sporting opportunities.

Hundreds of community and sports groups have benefited from grants since the scheme was set up. Last year £15,500 was donated to sporting groups connected to UK Power Networks staff.
