PTS sponsorship keeps the Bracknell Bees buzzing

Published:  17 December, 2010

READING: The Reading branch of plumbing merchant PTS has continued to support its local community by sponsoring the Bracknell Bees ice hockey team for the second year running.

The sponsorship is being used to fund the day to day running of the team and helps to provide essential items of kit and transport to matches.

PTS branch manager Andy Grayston is a die hard ice hockey fan and just one of many dedicated Bracknell Bees followers: “The Bracknell Bees are an important part of our community and a source of inspiration for the young people of Reading with several even progressing to the top of UK hockey, so I’m pleased that we can lend our support. By sponsoring the Bees, we’re contributing to something that is also important to both the staff and customers who are all from Reading.”

Stuart Robinson, general manager for the Bracknell Bees continued: “Our sponsors are a vital part of the extended ‘Bees’ family and without them, we wouldn’t be able to compete at a national level. Many of the Bracknell Bees play for Great Britain’s ice hockey squad with sponsors like PTS contributing to the training of some of the UK’s top sporting talent. It’s the dedication of our players, the support of our fans and the generosity of our annual sponsors that give the Bees their sting!”
