To celebrate the opening of its new Leeds branch, builders merchant Gibbs & Dandy has launched a competition where one lucky football team from the city will win a training session with ex-Leeds United players, Eddie Gray and Noel Whelan.
The competition prize also includes a full Gibbs & Dandy branded team kit, as well as a selection of training equipment.
Gray and Whelan have been signed up as ambassadors for the new branch, located on Elland Road, which opened on Monday 3rd August.
Neil Lawrence, managing director of Gibbs & Dandy, said: “All Gibbs & Dandy branches have a strong commitment to supporting their local communities, and we believe helping a local youth or adult football team would be a great prize for this football mad city.
“Whelan has a UEFA B coaching licence, while Gray is a former two-time Leeds United manager, so a training session with them will give an amazing insight into how professionals train and prepare for matches.”
To enter the competition, simply nominate the team you think should win this prize via www.gibbsanddandy.com/leeds/footy. The competition will be open until Friday 21st August.
In addition to supporting the competition, the former players will compete in a Question of Sport style quiz, which is being hosted by the branch for its VIP trade customers. They will also be working in the branch on Friday 7th August, so customers can be served by them.
Gibbs & Dandy Leeds will supply a wide variety of materials to suit all building needs, including general building materials, such as bricks, block, insulation and plasterboard. There will also be a drive-thru timber shed stocking timber, sheet materials and PSE mouldings, whilst also offering timber cutting services.
