This year, Thomson Gray are proud to support the Broadford Youth Club football team.
We believe that our corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments are central to our success. We want to give young people opportunities, support local charities, provide a positive impact on our community and give something back via pro bono work.
Broadford Youth Club provides an opportunity for personal and social development for young people in the South of Skye and Lochalsh.
It provides a safe environment for young people to enjoy a variety of activities and meets two to three times a week at the Broadford Village Hall.
With more than 70 members, Broadford Youth Club has over 20 volunteers. The volunteers work alongside High Life Highland Youth Workers, Nicholas Kelly and Sarah Corrigal.
Broadford Youth Club fundraising to attend a football tournament in Barcelona
As well as providing an opportunity for skills and hobby sharing with members of the local community, the club also runs a fantastic youth football club.
This October, the Broadford Youth Club football team will compete in a tournament in Barcelona. Ranging between 12 and 17 years of age, the passionate young footballers are playing in different age groups and tournaments.
The teams are currently busy raising more desperately needed funds for the trip. They’ve been doing sponsored runs, raffles and other events to help. You can see what they’re up to on their Facebook page.
Thomson Gray were keen to help
Thomson Gray are working on various projects across Skye. The most prominent ones are Marine Harvest’s Salmon Feed Plant and Skye and the Lochalsh and South Wester Ross Community Hospital in Broadford.
The team at Thomson Gray’s Inverness office were keen to take an active interest in supporting the local community. This seemed like a great opportunity to help.
Thomson Gray are delighted to be involved and wish the Broadford Youth Club football team the very best of luck!
