• Nimans helps vandalised football club with online donation

        • Nimans has shown its community spirit by helping a local junior football club recover from a recent vandal attack.

          Nimans joined soccer legend Gary Lineker in answering an SOS call from Salford United after its changing rooms were trashed, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.

          Paint was thrown around alongside racist graffiti which left dozens of youngsters heartbroken and club officials sickened. Kits and bags of balls were also stolen whilst goalposts and corner flags were snapped and netting wrecked.

          The club, founded in 2015, runs 16 junior teams, for boys and girls, aged between five and 12 – and the vandals even tried to start fires inside the small brick unit near the club’s playing fields. In response Nimans has donated £500 to the club’s JustGiving appeal which helped reach it’s £6,000 repair bill target.

          Club Welfare Officer and Coach, Mark Crossley, thanked all who have supported the club including Nimans as well as former soccer star Gary Lineker who donated too.

          Mark Crossley, who also works at Nimans in IT Development and Support said, “we have a good committee and good parents around us, but everyone is devastated. The younger kids, those aged five, six and seven, they are the ones that have been hit the hardest.”

          David Bennett, Nimans Director added, “as a large local employer with a community spirited ethos, we just hope the club gets back on its feet very soon,” he emphasised. “We are delighted to help the club achieve its target.”
