Society sponsors local football team

The Pace under 10s girls football team are looking smarter this season thanks to a £380 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 Holly Mann, who said: “This sponsorship provides girls the opportunities to be engaged with and involved in football, following the successes of our national female team earlier this year.”

Alison Cottle, manager of Leeds Building Society’s Southampton 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.

“It’s great to be supporting girls’ football. I have attended some training sessions, the girls are really determined and Holly is doing a great job building their confidence and skills.”
