Eldwick Autos partner with Foundation to sponsor Football and Education Programme

Bradford City FC Community Foundation is delighted to announce local business Eldwick Autos has become a sponsor for its Football and Education Programme.

The company, which has been offering car repairs, services and maintenance in the area for over 30 years, has pledged a donation which will be used to supply F&E students with valuable kit during their weekly training, playing and studying responsibilities.

Eldwick Autos Director Liam Watson, whose son Callum is a student on the F&E Programme, said: “We are delighted to come on board with the Foundation and invest in their Football and Education Programme. As a local business, we are always looking to invest in great causes like this one, providing crucial support to a project which gives young people pathways into both football and further education.

The Foundation’s F&E Programme allows its students to combine their studies with football. Young people earn qualifications in a dedicated educational environment, whilst following playing and training schedules which mirror those of professional footballers.

Craig Farrand, the Foundation’s Head of Sport who is heavily involved in the day-to-day running of F&E, said: “We are always looking to improve the standards of our education and sporting provision, and getting Eldwick Autos on board is a large part of facilitating that. Their investment means that we can continue to give our students the best, and most professional, possible sporting and learning opportunities.”

Eldwick Autos have pledged their support to the F&E Programme.

Eldwick Autos are now a key partner of the F&E Programme, and the Foundation looks forward to a long and successful working relationship.

The Foundation recently spotlighted Summer Paley, an F&E student who balances her commitments with the programme with her duties as part of her commitments to Bradford City Women’s first team. Read more about Summer’s journey here.
