Thornton Sports proud to support grassroots sports participants

Thornton Sports proud to support grassroots sports participants

The 10th annual Sefton Sports Awards took place on 16th June at the Southport Theatre Convention Centre, and celebrated sporting talent within the region. With a range of different award categories, exceptional sportspeople of all ages scooped awards for their efforts and dedication to sports and supporting sports programmes across the borough.

Delighted to be involved in such a great cause, Thornton Sports supported the Sefton Sports Bursary which provides an opportunity for grassroots sports participants to apply for financial support from the Sefton Sports Council. By sponsoring an activity weekend that was raffled on the night, Thornton Sports helped to generate almost £1000 for the Bursary.

David Saxby, Managing Director of Thornton Sports, attended the awards and presented the prize, commenting:

"We strongly believe in the importance of enabling people to progress further if they display a competence in a particular sport. Support is often needed, in many forms, for them to be able develop their talent and we are pleased to be able help towards providing the financial support required".

The event was attended by a number of our team currently working on the Netherton Activity Centre project in Sefton, where Thornton Sports have designed a new facility to incorporate 4 5-a-side and 2 7-a-side football pitches. Construction works are already underway on this new facility which will provide the local community with high performance training and leisure facilities.
