At the beginning of January Leo Group, along with the help of AWM, Leeds based waste management company, created a brand-new car park for Beacon Rangers Football Club. Beacon Rangers play in the Huddersfield Junior Football League at its Southowram base, the club provides more than 100 boys and girls the opportunity to play football in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Beacon Rangers currently rent the land owned by Leo Group in Southowram, and after having difficulty with parking facilities with cars having to drive across the field with no form of track, it has become particularly treacherous in wet weather. Nigel Freeman chairman of Beacon Rangers contacted Leo Group to see if there was anything we could do to assist. After the new car park was completed Nigel Freeman said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the Leo Group for their generosity in building this car park for us.”
John Brooksbank, Associated Waste Management Ltd Managing Director, said: “When we heard about the challenges faced by Nigel and his team at Beacon Rangers, there was no other option but for us to help. In conjunction with the Leo Group, we managed to lay a surface so that both the home team and visitors’ cars could park safely around the pitch.”
Danny Sawrij, Chairman of the Leo Group, said: “Nigel and his colleagues who run Beacon Rangers do a fantastic job, and Beacon Rangers is a club the whole community can be proud of.
“The coaches do an outstanding job teaching so many youngsters the joys of playing the ‘beautiful game’, and we recognised the car park was something that we could assist with.
“Now it’s completed, it’s wonderful to hear that the community is now coming together next month to help Beacon Rangers improve its changing facilities and pitches.”
As a direct result of the Leo Group’s & AWM’s generosity in creating this new facility, club members, together with volunteers from the local community will join forces on Sunday 11 February, to enhance the pitches and changing rooms.
