Funding Boost for Redcar Town FC

Redcar Town Football Club is today celebrating the news that it has received a £47,580.00 funding award from SUEZ Communities Trust for their project: Lighting up the Pitch at Redcar Town Football Club.

Redcar Town Football Club has a long standing presence at the Mo Mowlam Memorial Park which until now has had no floodlighting. This project will see the installation of 8 x 15 metre high floodlight columns and fit for purpose pitch side lighting to meet the FA’s National Ground Grading step 6. Floodlighting will increase usage at this popular football club.

Craig Gibbin, Treasurer of the club, who is leading the project said “This is a historic moment for the football club and undoubtingly will change the whole dynamics of Redcar Town Football Club. The help and assistance given from SUEZ Communities Trust from the start to the finish of the project has been invaluable and many thanks must go to Pete Sessions and his team”

Marianne Ivin of SUEZ Communities Trust added “This is clearly a very important project to the club and the ability to be able to train longer and use their own facilities will certainly make a big difference to their aspirations. SUEZ Communities Trust provides grants through the Landfill Communities Fund. This important source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided such worthy projects with more than £1.4 billion.”
