Capll Ltd have extended their ongoing commitment to Burnley FC in the Community’s pioneering disability sport provision, assuring further support to better and strengthen the local community.
The Danny Ings Disability Sport Project was launched in November 2014, and has since grown at an outstanding speed and had a prodigious impact. Along with grant funding, and support from the Premier League and BT Sport, this astounding project has grown to incorporate provision for remarkable children in and out of school hours, and also offers sessions for adults living with various disabilities, where they can take part in a number of recreational and competitive activities.
Capll has proudly contributed £20,000 per year since 2015 to assist Burnley FC in the Community with its development, and creating a safe and thriving establishment for those with disabilities, meaning there is a place for 1,000 participants to grow and create lasting friendships every single week.
Andrew Paul, Managing Director at Capll Ltd said, “As a local business owner I am delighted to be involved in a project that has such a positive impact on our local community.
The Danny Ings Disbaility Sport Project has grown phenomenally in the last three years, and I’m proud to say I have been able to support it.
Burnley Football Club has a unique position within our community in having the ability to bring people together and really contribute to daily life, whether that be through success on the field or through community based activities.
We work closely with the third sector and understand the need for everybody to play their part in supporting good causes, and we at Capll are proud to play our part in ensuring our community is thriving.”
Burnley FC in the Community Disability Development Officer, Lewis Rimmer said, “It’s fantastic to have Capll’s support as we continue to grow our disability sport provision significantly again as we react to need.”
“We have already launched a disability dance centre, which has attracted more young people to take part in sport, and our participation in the Ability Counts League is attracting increased numbers to the adult sessions.”
“We are also looking at our impairment specific offer and how we can take this forward as well as supporting Burnley FC by coordinating the Disabled Supporters’ Forum.”
Ryan Bradley, Business Development Executive at Burnley FC in the Community, also had this to offer, “The donation received from Capll Ltd is crucial to ensuring our disability sport provision continues to grow and thrive.”
“Andrew Paul and Capll have been involved from the very start of the project and the partnership is a prime example of how local businesses can work with Burnley FC in the Community to inspire, support and deliver change to the people of Burnley, Pendle and beyond.”
