A cricket club has been bowled over by the generosity of their local branch of Manning Stainton.
When Yeadon Cricket Club, a member of the JCT600 Bradford League, needed a new training and warm up top for their senior teams, the Guiseley branch of the area’s leading estate agency chain were more than happy to help.
Branch manager Clare Frieze said it was something they were happy to get involved in.
“We are keen to support local sports teams and organisations whenever possible.
“Clubs like Yeadon play an important role in the community but often find funding difficult to come by.”
Clare and her colleague Rhiannon Barclay paid a recent visit to the White Swan ground to meet some of the players, including first team captain James Todd, second team captain Paul Machell and overseas player Elliott Herd, who has come all the way from New Zealand.
James Todd said: “It was good to meet Clare and Rhiannon and thank them in person for their generous support.
“It is a constant battle to raise the funds needed to run the club and maintain the ground and facilities, so their help is invaluable.’”
Although the club has made an indifferent start to the new season, they are hopeful for the future and Manning Stainton are definitely top of the league when it comes to helping people move.
Clare added: “We employ a top team of property professionals which means that Manning Stainton customers will definitely not be caught out when they instruct us to sell their house.”
Manning Statinton were named Northern Estate Agent of the Year in the 2013 ESTAS.
