Elektec to supercharge AFC Darwen U12’s Football Kit

Electrical Contractors, Elektec from Darwen have confirmed that they will be proud sponsors of AFC Darwen U12’s Junior Football Club for the coming season. 

The clubs previous sponsor was Gareth Mayoh, father of Tom and Jack Mayoh ‘The Boys in shorts’ who have tirelessly fundraised for the hospice after their mum Louise was cared for here.  Gareth chose to sponsor the club kits in the name of East Lancashire Hospice a tradition Elektec, long standing supporter of the hospice have also chosen to continue.

Charlotte Knowles HR & Finance Manager for Elektec recalls “When we were approached by the club who were looking for a new sponsor, it felt like a good fit with our business being based in Darwen as we are always keen to give something back to the community.  When the club explained the kit had previously been sponsored in the name of East Lancashire Hospice by Gareth, we simply had to carry on the tradition as we always do whatever we can to support them.  Our logos will feature together on the new home kit with the hospice logo on the front of the shirt and the Elektec one on the reverse, whilst the Elektec logo will also feature on the away kit”. 

Katie Elliott, Marketing and Communications Lead for East Lancashire Hospice commented “Elektec provide us with the most amazing support here at the hospice, from PAT testing all of our electrical equipment on a regular basis free of charge (saving us a considerable amount of money) to fundraising and sponsoring our events to name but a few things.  The sponsorship arrangement agreed between AFC Darwen U12’s Junior Team and Elektec represents a fantastic opportunity for us to further raise our brand profile within the community at a time when we have never needed it more on the back of the pandemic.  We can’t wait to see the players in action!

Katie added “We simply could not provide the care that we do for our patients and their families without the support of companies like Elektec and we are all extremely grateful for everything they do for us”.
