TR Fastenings Bowls Over Heathfield Cricket Club with Donation

TR Fastenings (TR) has donated sponsorship funds in support of the youth teams at Heathfield Cricket Club (HCC), near to TR’s headquarters in Uckfield. Founded in 1878, the club is 140 years old but has had cricket played on its site for over 200 years and is a central part of the local community, bringing together cricketers of all ages.
HCC runs a number of sides, from junior and social to veteran teams.  The club caters for 100 junior players, all with differing levels of cricketing ability and has invested in a professional coach for its keen younger cricketers to further their skills. At the grass roots level of the junior cricket activities, we have a quickly expanding number of softball (the entry level of junior cricket) players. We have also invested in training at this level, engaging professional coaches from SKILLZ to develop our younger players.   
Andy Samuel, head of junior cricket at HCC says: “The club has always been proud of what we offer our junior members. We have been able to produce a host of talented young players, some up to county standard. In the past this was done by volunteers, but with this sponsorship from TR Fastenings and our other supporters we have been able to hire professional coaches, allowing us to give excellent training to even more young players.”
Mark Belton, CEO at Trifast, TR’s parent company, comments: “Heathfield Cricket Club is doing fantastic work supporting and educating young people in its local community and we are delighted to be supporting them. A cricket club is not just about sport; it’s about bringing people together and promoting physical health and sporting values such as teamwork, hard work and perseverance. We place great importance on these values at TR so it is very satisfying to be throwing our support behind a like-minded organisation.”
