A football club in Northumberland has put the funding it received from a chartered surveyors and estate agents to good use.
Bradley Hall has provided sponsorship to Ashington AFC for the 2016/17 season.
This support helped a number of projects, including new training kits and ground improvements and renovating the dugout areas and pitch.
The property firm’s links with the club came following the opening of its office in nearby town Morpeth earlier in 2016. Its ethos to sponsor local sporting organisations and events was also shown this year when it provided funding for Morpeth Rugby Club’s Morpeth 7s competition.
Ashington AFC was selected as a result of its positive impact in the community.
Its chairman, Ian Lavery MP, said: “Everyone at the club is very grateful for the support from Bradley Hall.”
