Members of Stornoway Football Club have scored some new equipment courtesy of the Scottish Salmon Company.
The provision comes as part of the latest round of the company’s community award funds, with Stornoway FC using the funding to purchase new footballs, training kit and referee equipment.
Craig Anderson, company chief executive, said: “Stornoway FC brings people together from different backgrounds to enjoy a mutual interest. The Scottish Salmon Company is committed to the promotion of health and wellbeing in the communities where we live and work, and are proud to support Stornoway FC and their outstanding work.”
The club, made up of 30 players, were nominated by processing operative Andrew Black and sustainability officer Murdo Frame.
Derek Morrison, manager of Stornoway FC said: “Our thanks go to The Scottish Salmon Company, their donation has had such a positive effect on the whole team.
“This funding will allow Stornoway FC to purchase additional training equipment, meaning we can get out more to practice between games.”
The company’s community fund was established in 2017 and encourages staff to be champions in their area by nominating local groups, charities and organisations that support health and wellbeing.
Grants of up to £250 are available for award to nominated groups.
