Local football club helped by Buy As You View donation
August 08, 2011
Local mini and junior football club, Llangeinor Rangers will continue to compete and grow in the next football season thanks to a donation from leading retail and consumer finance company, Buy As You View.
Buy As You View donated a 19” LCD flat screen TV with a DVD player to the Llangeinor based football club, which was used as the main raffle prize at the end of season presentation evening. Buy As You View has donated raffle prizes to the club for the past three years and raffle ticket purchases will help fund pitch fees, equipment and team kits.
Llangeinor Rangers Mini and Junior Football Club is a volunteer led community group, which is funded by parents, community funding and charitable donations. The club is currently made up of an under 7’s, 8’s, 9’s, 11’s and a Bridgend and District League winning under 12’s team.
The under 8’s coach, Simon Floyd, said: “A couple of years back, a friend of mine who was a Buy As You View customer suggested I contact them and since then the company’s community fund has really helped the football club to grow, by continuously donating and supporting these events. People only usually buy one raffle ticket if the prizes are low in value, but with such an impressive prize this year, raffle ticket sales alone have helped raise £250 for the club, which will put us in good stead for the next football season.”
Buy As You View, comments: “Helping causes like this gives us the opportunity to really show our support in the communities in which we operate. We are very pleased that the donation has meant that the Llangeinor Rangers will have extra financial support for pitch fees and equipment next season and we wish the club all the best with expanding the team over the next year.”
