Extratime announces a new shirt sponsorship partnership with local grass roots football club, Montpelier Villa.
The agreement will see the Montpelier Villa u14s wearing the Extratime name across their shirts as well as promotion for the charity across other communication channels.
“We’re delighted that Montpelier Villa have chosen Extratime” said CEO, Sam Price “Each year Extratime runs clubs and holiday schemes for around 250 disabled children and young people in Brighton & Hove and West Sussex, making sure they have the fun and excitement that other families take for granted
“Many of our children and young people are massive football fans so what better way to introduce Extratime to the local community than through a shirt sponsorship deal with a progressive local football club such as Montpelier Villa.”
Montpelier Villa’s founder, chairman and owner of marketing agency, Pleece & Co, Gary Pleece, said “Supporting local charities is a big part of our club’s and my company’s positioning. Every two years we go into our community to find who we consider to be an inspiring charity who are working hard on behalf of their audience and who might need some promotional help and we offer to put them on our youth football shirts as well as promoting them through other channels.
“We knew about Extratime’s fantastic work through one of the players in our u14 team whose sister has complex learning needs. Her mum couldn’t praise Extratime enough, saying they had supported her fantastically, giving her the support, care and creative space her daughter needed to meet new friends. We have been inspired by Extratime’s work and we are delighted to support them.”
Pleece & Co paid for the new kits. They are also giving their professional help free of charge to help Extratime look for new ways to raise funds for their important work to support disabled children.
“Extratime is unique as we provide inclusive clubs and holiday schemes for children and young people with and without disabilities,” says Sam.
“Charity, funding is always a challenge, but Extratime is a lifeline for hundreds of local families of disabled children so we rely on support from the community to give our children and young people the fun and laughter they deserve.”
