Kevin Caveney, Director of Commercial Sales handing over the cheque to CS Colts
Centre Spot Colts Football Club (CS Colts), established to help children from disadvantaged communities in the Black Country, has received £2,000 in sponsorship from Nationwide Windows & Doors (NWD), to support them in the outstanding work they do.
Formed in 2010, CS Colts has gained a reputation for excellent coaching while providing an environment for players to develop and progress. Over the last 12 years, they have helped 38 players sign for professional football academies. A huge majority of CS Colts players, more than 70 percent, come from inner city areas and from low income families.
“We started the club at the request of parents who wanted their children to play somewhere that offered a safe and fun environment,” said Manny Abbeyquaye, Director of Centre Spot Colts. “As well as having the benefit of being trained by highly experienced coaches.
“The last few years have been extremely challenging for most of the families our players come from. The pandemic, and now the cost-of-living crisis, have had a negative effect on the income of our families, which has meant that in some cases they can no longer afford for their children to play football.
“Although our club is designed to make access to our teams as affordable as possible by reducing costs and charging the least fees, some players are still missing out. Nationwide’s sponsorship allows us to be able to further reduce our subs for those players who will otherwise not have the opportunity to play and enjoy the sport they enjoy so much.”
Kevin Caveney, Director of Commercial Sales at NWD, says: “At Nationwide, we are always looking to provide support to causes that align with our own core values of community enrichment and social responsibility.
“The work that CS Colts undertake to foster positive change and create lasting opportunities in the region is inspiring. We’re proud to back such a fantastic cause that helps to empower disadvantaged children while promoting the spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship.”
