At Houghton International we have a long history of supporting charities and other organisations, from fundraising activity to sports sponsorship. Each year we seek out opportunities to give back to our local community.
Recently we were proud to provide sponsorship to Hetton Lyons FC under-13s, enabling the team to purchase new home and away strips. The young footballers fed back their excitement and how they felt like professionals in their new kit.
Ed Hudspith of Hetton Lyons commented: “Hetton Lyons FC U13’s would like to extend their appreciation for the support offered, through sponsorship, by Houghton International for the current and forthcoming seasons. In these times of financial challenge, the support offered by local businesses to help sustain the operation of voluntary ran teams and clubs is growing ever more necessary.
“Created back in 2015 after gathering a group of local U7 kids from the Hetton, Houghton and surrounding Coalfield areas of Sunderland, this week the lads secured promotion to the top tier of their age group. Wearing their home and away strips with beaming pride and appreciation: Thank you Houghton International!”
We’re delighted to have received such great feedback and wish the team luck in their upcoming Premier Division season.
