Harworth Colliery FC near Doncaster and Old Sharlston Cricket Club in Wakefield, are set to benefit from a new McCulloch ride-on mower, which will be used to cut the playing and training pitches at the two clubs.
The grass cutting tractor has been donated jointly by logistics provider Wincanton and outdoor power products specialist Husqvarna Group UK, who currently work together at the Doncaster Trax Park site.
Paul Wilson, General Manager of Harworth & Bircotes Sports & Social Club commented: “Since the local pit closed down, finances for the club have been very tight and covering operational costs has been challenging. This donation comes at just the right time and will be a huge help for us in maintaining our grounds, ultimately providing a quality venue for our community club.”
Keith Hartshorne, Chairman of Old Sharlston Cricket Club adds, "We are always looking to improve facilities and this kind donation will replace our very old mower. Thank you for your amazing support which will allow us to keep our community ground in pristine condition."
Tom Crossland, Depot Centre Manager at Wincanton, said: “At Wincanton, we are always looking for ways in which we can support our employees, and more broadly the local community.
“A number of our colleagues and their families here at Trax Park are affiliated with the two clubs, so we are pleased to be able to play our part, alongside Husqvarna Group UK, with the upkeep of their pitches.
Paul Simpson, National Account Manager UK & IRE for Consumer Brands Division at Husqvarna Group UK, said: “We are pleased to be able to support Harworth Colliery and Old Sharlston.
“It is great to be able to work with Wincanton on this, in what we hope will be the beginning of a long lasting partnership working with the local community.”
Harworth Colliery FC and Old Sharlston Cricket Club will be making banners for Wincanton and Husqvarna to display around their respective pitches.
