A company is searching for local deserving youth sports teams to receive a surprise visit and £1,000 donation towards their club.
The Worcester Bosch Group has launched the search, and to kick off the campaign, ex-England footballer and ‘I’m a Celebrity’ contestant Wayne Bridge and ex-England rugby star and ‘Dancing on Ice’ winner Kyran Bracken returned to their grass roots to surprise players and spectators on the sidelines.
As well as joining the young aspiring players on the pitch for a pep talk and coaching session, the sporting legends had an extra treat for parents, as they helped keep them warm on the sidelines with hot drinks, bacon sandwiches and blankets during the game.
The heating supplier is now calling for locals in Horsham to nominate a deserving youth team for the chance to receive a special visit and £1,000 donation when the season kicks off again in September.
Sue Pennington, consumer brand manager at Worcester Bosch Group, said: “Youth sport is such an important part of local communities, so this year we wanted to give something back, not just to the players, but to the parents and coaches who give up their time and energy every week to celebrate their children’s love of sport.
“It would be great to visit a grass roots team in Horsham, so we can show local parents and spectators that they can rely on Worcester to keep them warm.”
To nominate a worthy club, locals should visit www.worcester-bosch.co.uk/rely before Sunday 30th July 30 , stating in 100 words why the team deserves a surprise visit from Worcester.
