No jumpers for goalposts for Kesgrave Kestrels

Kesgrave Kestrels U9s have new goalposts at their training ground thanks to a little help from UK Power Networks.

The company, which delivers electricity to eight million customers across East Anglia, London and the South East, 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 Louise Whinney, who is a training manager at the company’s Ipswich office, and also the parent liaison officer for the U9s team.

Louise, whose son George plays for the team, said: “The team is delighted to have received the award from UK Power Networks, with the money being used to buy the correct size goalposts for the U9s as the goals where they train are full size.

“We had some money left over the money, which has gone towards purchasing Kestrels rain jackets for the boys.”

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

Hundreds of community and sports groups have benefited from grants since the scheme was set up. Last year £15,000 was donated to sporting groups connected to UK Power Networks staff.
