Grassroots 2018 Campaign Winners Announced

Added 08 Aug 2018 by GFORCE

We’re delighted to be able to announce the winners of our 2018 Grassroots campaign!

After being inundated with entries from sport clubs and teams across the Midlands, with more applications than ever before, it was an extremely hard decision for us to pick our final eight.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter and wish you all the very best in your sporting endeavours for the future.

But the winners, in no particular order, are:

• Grasshopper Netball Club, Leicestershire


• Old Newtonians RFC, Under 10s, Leicestershire


• Derbyshire Spartans Basketball, U14s, Derbyshire


• St Ann’s Sneinton Football Club, Nottinghamshire


• Bramcote Swimming Club Aquastars synchronised swimming, Nottinghamshire


• Birmingham Blitz Dames Roller Derby, West Midlands


• Corby Dodgeball Club, Northamptonshire


• Stoke Spitfires Wheelchair Basketball, Staffordshire

The GFORCE Sportswear’s ‘GFORCE Grassroots Campaign’, aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations. Reinforcing our commitment to grassroots sport, for the third year running, we set aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations could apply for grants from, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

Simon Ward, group sales director at GFORCE, said: “We’ve been blown away by the interest in our Grassroots campaign this year. Our company has a proud history of supporting the community and this campaign is a great way to do just that, as well as reaffirming our commitment to grassroots sport. We know how hard it is for sports clubs to keep going and getting access to funding can be a real issue, so we are delighted to be able to help in this way.

“We’d like to say a massive well done to everyone who entered but particularly our eight winners who represent a variety of sports and have really highlighted their dedication and passion.

“Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks and months as we find out more about each of our winners. Watch this space!”
