The next-generation broadband company BeFibre – who announced it was coming to Bramley earlier this year – is now reinforcing its commitment to the community by sponsoring under 13s football club, Bramley Sunnyside Juniors.
Driving grassroots football success in the town, Bramley Sunnyside comprises 27 teams ranging from 5 to 18 years old – with the organisers believing that football should be accessible to all.
And, vocal about its commitment to the community since the team first arrived in Bramley, internet service provider BeFibre has pledged to sponsor Bramley Sunnyside FC’s U13s away strip and training kit – including winter jackets.
Rob Elliott, Vice-Chairman of the club, said: “BeFibre are providing invaluable support with their sponsorship and supply of playing kits for our U13’s team. In a tough economic climate, raising the funds to support local grassroots teams can be difficult, but with their contribution this will enable us to continue providing a fun environment for children to play football. We look forward to working with BeFibre now and in the future and are thankful for their contribution.”
“Supporting community initiatives have always been at the heart of what we do” commented Louise Elliott, chief customer and operations officer for BeFibre and Digital Infrastructure.
“We are passionate about having a positive impact in the areas we’re working in. Local grassroots teams like Bramley Sunnyside FC are the foundations of society, and that’s exactly why it’s important for us to offer our support and we hope to continue to develop this relationship into the new year.”
BeFibre’s privately-funded £100m network roll out – which is planned, built, and operated by the firm’s sister company, Digital Infrastructure – is progressing well in Bramley and surrounding areas, with first homes set to be connected early next year.
