Timber and builders merchants Howarth Timber & Building Supplies has helped semi-professional football team, Selby Town FC, with a donation of materials to help it build a brand-new clubhouse.
The York branch supplied the materials – which included piping and pipe insulation, valves and concentrated inhibitor – and the company will sponsor the club for the forthcoming 2020/21 season.
Club manager, Christian Fox, commented: “We’re enormously grateful for the sponsorship and donation of building materials from Howarth Timber & Building Supplies. A new clubhouse is long overdue and this support will allow us to have something we can be really proud of.
“The team is raring to go and we can’t wait to get back playing football again. Thank you to all of the businesses and supporters who have helped us throughout this tough time.”
Rich Winstanley, assistant branch manager for Howarth Timber & Building Supplies York, added: “We are proud to be supporting Selby Town FC and know the team is an important part of the local community.
“We wanted to do our bit to help the club build what is a vital facility for the players, families and of course the community and will be really pleased to see it in action when it’s up and running – especially on those cold Yorkshire weekend fixtures!”
