Digicel donate goodies to clubs

Digicel have donated four packs of equipment to local football clubs including Wolves, Boulevard, St Davids and Cougars.

The packs included Adidas footballs, bibs, T-shirts, cones, whistles and water bottles. The donation was made to clubs as the telecoms company recognised the need for equipment at clubs who might lack such equipment or not have the funds to purchase new items.

Donn Foggo, the Digicel marketing manager, said: “Digicel is no stranger to investing in youth sports and young athletes. For years we have lent support where we could throughout Bermuda. Namely to events and athletes such as the Under-12 Super Summer Cricket Series, Tyler Smith, Erica Hawley and Olympian Ceci Wollmann. Not to forget our bigger sponsorships which include Eastern County Cricket. With the new football season under way we're aware many clubs lack kit and equipment when it comes to training and we trust the players, at all levels, will benefit from this small donation.

“This is the first step in what will be a bigger involvement in youth football and we'll have some exciting news very soon.”

After receiving his pack Angelo Curtis, of Cougars said, “These will go to a worthy cause and the clubs appreciates what Digicel are doing for the youth especially, the football clubs in Bermuda.”

Reggie Paynter, the under-9 and under-11 coach at Wolves, added “Thanks to Digicel for their donation. This will make our training sessions better and easier as we're missing a lot of kit.”

Since 2016 Digicel has donated over $300,000 in various sporting, cultural, charity and musical events as well as supporting youth sports and athletes through sponsorships, donation of services and supply of kit. The company continues to be committed to the community and recognises the importance of sporting activities to the development of youth while also contributing to other worthy cultural and sporting events.
