Posted on

The North West’s leading office technology sales and service provider welcomed Stockport County Community Foundation to their Bredbury office for an end of season review.

Midshire Northern has now been Stockport County Community Foundation’s official kit sponsor a whole season and in recognition of this, Dave Wardle, Community Foundation Manager and Andrew Calvert, Foundation Trustee and Director presented Midshire Managing Director, Julian Stafford with a signed Stockport County shirt.

The Community Foundation is an important charitable organisation of Stockport County Football Club. The Foundation takes Stockport County off the pitch and into the local community to engage children and adults in structured, safe, fun and enjoyable community activities, giving the football club a huge, positive profile outside Edgeley Park. The Community Foundation works with a number of partners, football and non-football in order to deliver high quality activities for the local community.

Midshire Managing Director Julian Stafford commented,

“I really enjoy supporting local organisations, and Stockport County Community Foundation does some excellent work. It stretches beyond football, and engages with both adults and children in the local area.”

Over the last 12 months the Community Foundation activities and contact with the local community has increased significantly and one of the many successful developments is the Disability work they deliver. Weekly coaching sessions are run for Adults and Children, forming two Adult PAN Disability and one Under 16s Pan Disability team representing Stockport County in monthly leagues.

As a registered charity, the Community Foundation is completely self-funded, and so relies on sponsorships and funding in order to support its many activities both sport and non-sport related programmes.

In return for their support, Midshire’s logo has appeared on all staff kit, company vehicles and the Stockport County match day programme Community Foundation page. With a staff of 21, the sponsorship of kit is important for the Foundation and the work it carries out. Every staff member is supplied with full training kit for use throughout the year.

‘All the staff and Board of Trustees at the Community Foundation would like to thank Midshire for their sponsorship and support over the last twelve months. To have such an outstanding company who supports so many charitable organisations like ourselves in the Stockport area is vital for our continued success moving forwards in making people aware of the Community Foundation and giving them access to our Football Club.’

Midshire continues to support local charities and organisations across Stockport. Currently the organisation is the headline sponsor of Romiley based NK Theatre Arts and headline sponsor of Super League Netball team Manchester Thunder.
