We are delighted to announce that office technology supplier
Midshire® has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Stockport County
Community Foundation’s School Coaching Programme for a fourth consecutive year.
The Schools Coaching Programme seeks to expand Stockport
County’s work away from Edgeley Park and out into the local community.
Run entirely by the not-for-profit Stockport County
Community Foundation, the coaching programme works with local schools to engage
children in safe, fun developmental activities around sport.
The Schools Coaching Programme works with Primary Schools in
Stockport, Tameside, and the High Peak to deliver structured sports sessions to
children of all ages and abilities. The main aim of the programme is to engage
with as many children in the community as possible, giving them access to their
local football club and other physical activities.
Stockport County players Sam Minihan, Paul Turnbull and
Manger James Gannon are part of the twenty two coaches helping deliver the
Midshire Schools Coaching Programme every week.
