A local construction firm has said it’s ‘excited and proud’ to be involved in local football projects, including a total transformation of Altrincham FC’s VP Lounge.
Armstrong Projects launched its Give Something Back campaign this year, which has seen them getting involved in community projects.
As well as donating library furniture and books to a local school, Armstrong Projects has also partnered with a local grassroots football team.
Youth team Pennine FC U11, who play in the North Bury Junior league, have been provided with new kits and training gear.
A spokesperson for Armstrong Projects said: “Having played football as youngsters, we recognise that grass foots football at a young age is essential for youth development both in terms of physical and mental health, team building and confidence whilst also bringing local communities together!
“We are very proud and happy to have been able to play a part with these exceptionally talented kids.”
The company’s founders Chris Hamlett and Paul Armstrong are both keen football fans, supporting Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.
They say that they’re striving to inject ‘fun’ into the working environment, which is easily done when involving a sport they both love.
As well as its work with the Pennine FC U11s team, Armstrong Projects are also working to refurbish the VP lounge at Altrincham FC.
That means adding in a new bar area, bench seating, upgraded toilets and a graffiti feature wall.
The work on The Armstrong Projects Vice Presidents Lounge is due to be completed before Christmas.
A spokesperson said: “We absolutely look forward to developing our relationship with Altrincham FC and are excited and proud to have been able to play a part in their continued growth and success!”
Amrstrong Projects were first introduced to Altrincham FC when the team approached them to take part in a community football tournament, which Armstrong Projects entered three teams into.
They continued: “From then on and as Altrincham FC were developing their Breakfast Business Club, we started to develop a strong bond, based on community values, building good relationships and obviously football!
“As the 2021-2022 seasons was about to commence, we were asked to sponsor the clubs match ball podium and did not hesitate to get involved.
“In readiness for their first match of the season and on their newly laid football pitch, our team arrived to present their new podium – from this point we knew a great partnership was being formed.”
