Leeds sponsors local football team

The Hucclecote Harriers under 9s football team are looking smarter this season thanks to a £400 donation from Leeds Building Society.

The sponsorship has paid for new kits for the team, with the players proudly carrying the Society's logo on the front of their shirts for a season.

The team are coached by Brian Hutton, who said: "This sponsorship allows our club to get more young people active and ensure they have the ability to keep fit, develop their skills and of course have fun in a safe environment."

Jennifer Lindoe, manager of Leeds Building Society's Gloucester branch said: "We are delighted to make this donation and support the team.

"As a building society, we are owned by our members and are pleased to support good causes in the communities where we and our members live and work."
