Junior football team bags Torness sponsorship

A junior football team in the Borders have been able to add to their kit list thanks to a donation from Torness power station.

Chirnside Juniors were given £300 sponsorship by the EDF Energy station. The team used the money to buy new personalised club boot bags to complete their kit.

The team plays in the Berwickshire village of Chirnside and has 45 members aged between 5 and 9.

Torness station director, Robert Gunn, said: “We support a number of local clubs and charities each year and it’s always great to see how they spend the money. I was delighted that we could help the football team out in this way and I wish them the best of luck for their new season.”

Duncan Morrison from the club said: “We were pleased to have this boost from Torness power station and we really appreciate the donation. The kids love the bags and were excited to receive them.”
