Scott Rees & Co Solicitors have announced that they will be sponsoring North West football team Skem Men-Aces for the following season as they set off to compete in the Special Olympics in Bath today.
The Skem-Menaces are a football team set up for people who have learning difficulties and are well known across the UK, particularly in the Merseyside region where their popularity has exploded over the last few years.
A month ago Scott Rees played them in a friendly fixture where an instant bond was born and now the firm has developed this further by agreeing to sponsor them £1,000, which will be used to fund a brand new kit for the team.
Carl Eaton, who manages the Menaces, announced the news at their presentation evening last Friday, which was attended by all of the players and a few special guests, who were quick to comment on the personal injury specialists in Skelmersdale for offering their support.
This included former Liverpool FC legend Chris Lawler who spoke about how it was a nice gesture for the firm to help the Skem Men-Aces.
Attending on behalf of Scott Rees & Co was Legal Assistant, Jamie Hornby, who arranges the firm’s football team for such events and he was instrumental in helping the Men-Aces choose their new kit.
He said afterwards: “Obviously it is great to be involved in such a worthwhile project as it is such a fantastic club. We really enjoyed playing against them a few weeks ago and that endeared us to what the Skem Men-Aces are all about.”
Scott Rees & Co’s Marketing Partner David Byrne added: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Skem Men-Aces for their forthcoming season. The direction they are going in is fantastic and we fully believe in helping the local community as and where we can. I also would like to take the opportunity to wish them the very best of luck for the Special Olympics in Bath.”
