Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes and the Scottish Football Partnership Trust team up to support grassroots football club

Edinburgh based, Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes has provided a donation to the Scottish Football Partnership (SFP) Trust that will enable a local grassroots club to improve its facilities. Cementing an existing working partnership that sees Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes deliver containers and portable changing facilities across the Scottish mainland, Highlands and Islands for the SFP Trust, the donation will assist a local club.

Dalkeith Thistle Community Football Club, a Scottish FA Quality Mark community club, applied to the SFP Trust back in November 2017 for support to assist them in purchasing new portable floodlights and portable goalposts. The club have some of the best facilities in the area, however their committee are continually trying to improve all aspects of the club and firmly believe that the young people of Dalkeith should be given every opportunity to participate, develop and enjoy the game of football. This family based football club actively encourage social participation beyond the boundaries of the football world. The SFP Trustees were so impressed with the ambitions and dedication of Dalkeith Thistle Community F.C. that they were delighted to award funding which included a donation from Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes who had provided funding to support the ongoing aims and objectives of the SFP Trust.

Stuart McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer at the SFP Trust attended the official handover ceremony at Dalkeith Thistle Community Football Club, which also included a visit by a large Liebherr vehicle from Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes. There, Mark Rafferty from Bernard Hunter commented, “Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes is delighted to support the SFP Trust. As a family owned and operated firm stretching back over seventy years, each of our three generations has enjoyed a close association with its local community. We realise the importance of sports participation in an inclusive environment for young people and as a local employer, with staff and their families in the neighbouring communities, we consider it a privilege to support community initiatives such as the SFP Trust.”

Tony Cervi from the club added, “Dalkeith Thistle Community F.C. is a fast-growing community club with over 400 players now, ranging from toddlers all the way through to under 20’s and incorporating walking football and now disabled football. Because of the rapid increase in size, in common with other clubs we are coming up against constraints on when and where to train and play. The investment in portable floodlights has opened a new opportunity for the older age groups to train in other parts of our facility, at later times, thereby increasing the training hours and protecting parts of our grass from over-use in the winter months. In terms of the folding goals, our view was that purchasing these would vastly reduce the time taken to set up and finish our games, giving the coaches a lot more time to coach and allowing parents and carers to come along and just enjoy the games! The assistance of the SFP and Bernard Hunter in funding these investments has been a huge help to us, and we are very grateful to both organisations.”

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
