TW Braga Celebrate as They Receive a Helping Hand Thanks to Power NI
The Belfast based football club was nominated to receive the community funding by Power NI employee, Tim Parkes, as part of the company’s staff sponsorship scheme ‘Helping Hands’, which gives staff the opportunity to put forward local groups and organisations for funding. Thanks to the donation, the club was able to purchase new foldable nets, training cones, bibs and footballs.
TW Braga was established in 2013, linking up with SC Braga in Portugal. This means that the club isn’t attached to an area in Northern Ireland and therefore is open to everyone. TW Braga currently provide over 100 members with a social and physical outlet in the form of football, bringing together members of all different nationalities, through their common love of the sport.
Power NI is delighted to support TW Braga by providing funding for much-needed new training equipment. The funding from Power NI will give the club a much-needed boost and help support all youth training sessions at TW Braga. This will ensure that the club can continue to offer new opportunities and help develop all members skills, while building and strengthening friendships.
Grateful for the funding, Power NI employee Tim Parkes commented:
“I am delighted to be able to facilitate the fantastic Power NI Helping Hands Scheme to help a local club that brings so much to the local community. This initiative will help TW Braga with acquiring much needed training equipment which in turn will help bring people from all sides of our community together under the common bond of sport.”
TW Braga Academy Director, Tim Wareing commented:
“The lockdown and Covid has hit TW Braga, like other clubs, hard. As we attempt to restart every little bit of help and support helps us come back stronger. £300 will help us purchase and upgrade essential coaching equipment that our playing members will benefit from. Thank you to PowerNI for this wonderful initiative.”
