Law firm this week launches its new sporting sponsorship programme for 2015, which will see the Manchester firm invest over £10k in supporting sport at all levels across Manchester and Cheshire with over eight individual sponsorship initiatives, ranging from  Premier League basketball team The Manchester Giants to local and junior sports clubs in Altrincham, Sale, Timperley and Wilmslow.

The Manchester Giants players Connor Murtagh and Ingus Bankevics are pictured here with 13 year old Jake Hughes, a young cricketer who plays for Lymm Cricket Club, ten year old Matthew Thornhill who plays for Timperley Junior Football Club and Richard Hughes from Slater Heelis LLP.

Richard from Slater Heelis LLP said:

“Our business has always operated very much at the heart of the community and we understand just how vital sport is to people of all ages. Sport brings people together, encourages self-esteem and has even been proven to boost lifelong learning.

“We strongly believe in ‘giving back’ to local clubs who are much in need of support and we are proud to see our name associated with a wide range of projects in the region, from the high flying professional world of the Manchester Giants to the grass roots, muddy Sunday mornings of junior football.”

John Dwan, CEO of Manchester Giants said:

“Without the continued support from businesses like Slater Heelis, many grass roots and even professional sports programmes would really struggle to survive. Supporting sporting clubs and facilities is a great way for companies to really put their money where their mouth is and to help keep their community engaged, active and healthy.” 

Slater Heelis LLP will be funding a wide range of sporting clubs and projects across Greater Manchester with money going to fund programmes including:

·       Manchester Giants basketball team backboards and pads

·       A mobile app and parents handbook for Timperley Junior Football League

·       The kit for the U10’s Timperley Junior Football Club

·       The kit for the Lymm Cricket Club

·       Programme adverts for Wilmslow Rugby Football Club

·       Sponsorship of one of the tea’s at Sale Golf Club

·       Pitch side hoardings, sponsorship of the Foundation’s newsletter and usual match day programme adverts for Altrincham Football Club
