Unique Construction and Sport Partnership in Prestwich, Greater Manchester

08 May 2014
CEMEX UK is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with Greater Manchester Community sports club, Prestwich CTBC (cricket, tennis and bowling club) that will see road and cyclist safety education and awareness reach over 1000 children in Greater Manchester this year.

This unique partnership, joining construction and sport, will work jointly within the North Manchester community to carry out a number of road safety events at the club's ground at Heys Road through the junior sports activities.  

Prestwich CTBC is a well established community club that provides cricket, tennis, football to over 300 juniors with age groups ranging from 5 to 18.  Each and every child travels to the club via bike, foot or car, making road safety awareness imperative.  During the summer over 1000 children will play active sport at the ground giving great exposure to safety messages.

Commenting on the partnership CEMEX UK Regional Commercial Manager Damon Montgomery "CEMEX UK operates over 700 large goods vehicles, travelling daily on UK roads to deliver essential building materials such as concrete, cement and aggregates to construction projects.  Children that walk and cycle to their local schools and sports club should be aware of the dangers around lgvs and we have a responsibility to ensure children are aware of the potential risks.  Our partnership with Prestwich CTBC will help to make sure that the budding Freddie Flintoff and Andy Murray of tomorrow will get to training safely."

Club chairman Brian Lorenzini commented "this is a unique sponsorship deal for the club providing much needed funding for our own youth projects and at the same time improving the well-being and safety of our younger members.  I wish CEMEX UK every success in this initiative as we look forward to the planned events in the summer months."
