Law Firm Supports Next Generation of Basketball Stars
Leading regional law firm, Peter Lynn and Partners are proud to support Bishop Gore Basketball Team by supplying the school with a new basketball uniform.
The school side, who compete locally, was in need of new kit and approached the legal firm for a contribution but were overwhelmed by the offer they received.
Mark Waygood, Head of PE at Bishop Gore Comprehensive said: “We sent letters out to local businesses asking for support and Peter Lynn and Partners were not only the first to reply, but they also offered to cover the full cost of the kit, something we are truly grateful for.”
Stuart Atherton, Partner, commented “sponsoring grass-roots sport is central to our corporate social responsibility strategy and the opportunity to help Bishop Gore Basketball Team was a great way for us to fulfil this aim.”
The team wore the kit for the first time at the 2017/18 Welsh National Schools Basketball Tournament which took place at Swansea University on 27th February.
There were four groups of three teams and the Bishop Gore team proceeded to the semi-finals against Cowbridge after topping their own group.
Mark commented, “Cowbridge were a solid side, and the boys worked extremely hard but eventually went down 25-11 which meant they were knocked out of the tournament.”
The squad consists of:
Daniel Thompson, Ethan Browning, Tom Collier, Alex Adanah, Clifford Egibie, Ibrar Khawaja, Danny Hughes, Alfred Chisango
