Covers ‘bends over backwards’ to help local club

Published:  01 December, 2014

Covers Timber & Builders Merchants has supported local gymnastics team The Portsmouth School of Gymnastics.

The merchant sponsored the senior women’s team, which came sixth in the qualifying competition, made it to the European finals in Iceland and came sixth overall.

Covers’ Portsmouth depot manager Dale Lambourne said: “The Portsmouth School of Gymnastics team has achieved an awful lot this year and we are proud to have helped them, through sponsorship, to get to the European finals. Any help we can provide for this outstanding team is great. We were only too pleased to sponsor the gymnastics stars of the future.”

Rochelle Oxley, senior team member, added: “On behalf of the whole team, I would like to thank Covers for their support over the past few months. We feel that we have done ourselves and our country proud in this competition. It was hard work but well worth it. Once again, a massive thank you to Covers and to all our supporters – we wouldn’t have made it to the finals without them.”
