England and Kent Hockey Affiliated K Sports Hockey Club announces the signing of a club and pitch sponsorship agreement with local specialist direct marketing group Avalon Produce. A true leader in their field, Avalon Produce Limited, established in 2015, is a “direct” marketing group focusing on creating value for their suppliers and customers on a sustainable basis by offering the essential expertise to drive growth, lead change and push boundaries. The sponsorship has enabled K Sports Hockey Club to commence their Junior Academy project, with a view to making the sport of hockey available to all school ages and the community. As part of the sponsorship deal Avalon Produce will be advertising at the new hockey pitch, located at K Sports Cobdown. K Sports Hockey Club currently has within its youth and junior section 20 to 30 members, but the project aims to create teams between the age groups under 7’s up to the under 18’s playing throughout Kent and the South.
K Sports Hockey Club Chairman Mike Newmarch said:
“I am delighted that Avalon Produce has agreed to sponsor K Sports Hockey Club and the pitch. This sponsorship has enabled us to kick-start our Junior Academy project, which will hugely benefit the local community and the club. I would like to thank Ashley Bernhard of Avalon Produce for his agreement to sponsor the club and pitch. This is a fantastic base for us to build from, capitalising on the magnificent new facility that has been constructed at K Sports Cobdown.”
Ashley Bernhard, Managing Director of Avalon Produce added
“This sponsorship at K Sports Hockey Club will give them a solid starting ground for the Junior Academy and make the kids and community who get involved part of something that is very special. The junior structure in place at K Sports Hockey Club gives the youngsters an opportunity to develop their hockey skills and with teamwork helps them to mature as young people. Through this sponsorship I fully support the aims of K Sports Hockey Club in providing positive opportunities to many youngsters; some of whom will develop into very good hockey players and who knows a place in the County or National squads.”
