Huddersfield partners with local cricket club
Our Huddersfield branch has thrown its support behind Birkby Rosehill Cricket Club by signing up to be a sponsor.
The support also includes the branch helping with the renovation of the teams club house later in the year by supplying some of the building materials required.
Structural materials, including concrete blocks, timber and plaster boards will be needed to help with the renovation work to update the facilities, located on Birkby Hall Road, and help the club accomplish its target of diversity and support in the community.
Tim Charlton, manager of the Kings Mill Lane branch, said: We heard about this opportunity through one of our customers, who is involved with Birkby Rosehill CC.
As an established local business, were always keen to support community initiatives and projects, so when we found out about the club and its plans to renovate its club house, I knew it was something we should support.
Birkby Rosehill CC has exciting plans for the future, including the renovation of the club house, which is due to begin towards the end of this summers cricket season. Im proud that Gibbs & Dandy can be part of the clubs future.
Altaf Hussain, from Birkby Rosehill CC, said: Were very grateful for Gibbs & Dandys support.
We currently have two junior cricket teams at U13 and U15 level, as well as three senior teams across Huddersfield and Halifax. The club is an important part of the local community and Gibbs & Dandys support will ensure we can provide quality facilities for our players and members.
