We want to make a positive difference to our local community.
Sponsorship for local sports teams in football, rugby and boxing provides opportunities for local people, fosters team spirit and allows local people to become engaged in a healthier way of living.
We are passionate about providing sporting facilities for children and young adults – helping to provide them with a future through encouragement and opportunities.
We provide labour and plant for local projects, to enable a lift in community spirit at a fraction of the usual cost.
We recently sponsored Frome College Under 16 Girls team who progressed to the final of the England Schools Football Association national cup which was played at Manchester City ground. After an entertaining final they came out champions beating their opposition Thomas Telford School 4-3.
We have sponsored Frome Town Youth Girls Football for 7 years, proudly watching as the girls grow in skills and flourish in their sportsmanship. They won the Aces National Tournament in 2015, where just under 200 boys and girls teams from England, Scotland, Wales and Europe came together to produce football of the highest calibre.
Frome and Shepton Mallet Boxing Club
We support Ryan Wheeler (The Somerset Stallion), a successful professional boxer from Frome. Over 52 fights, he has won the Midlands, South West and Southern Area Championships, reaching the finals of the Nationals. The support he receives is very important to him as he would not be able to get to where he wants without the support of friends, family and sponsors.
Ryan says “A big thank you to Connor Construction for giving me sponsorship funds to complete my annual medical – without your help I would find it extremely difficult”
Beckington Cricket Club
We are providing support for Beckington Cricket Club at the Beckington Ball through sponsorship and tickets. Their aim is to support The Forever Friends Appeal in raising money towards the cost of the new Royal United Hospital Cancer Centre. In addition to this, they hope to raise money to assist in buying much-needed equipment and facilities for Beckington’s ever-growing cricket club.
Other support includes
- Sponsorship of Trophy for Frome Rugby Sevens
- Provision of ties and equipment for children’s team at Frome Rugby Club
- Provision of plant and labour to lay Frome Rugby Club’s new car park
- Sponsorship of a race car
Harry’s Hydro Charity
We were proud to provide machinery and labour to lay the car park for this worthwhile project. Through exercise and stimulation in a purpose built, correctly heated and equipped hydrotherapy pool, Harry’s Hydro helps the physically disabled and those with sensory, learning or profound and multiple difficulties. Its benefits stretch far beyond the Frome area.
Frome Community College
An ancient tree that has stood in the grounds of the Stourhead estate for 250 years is to be transformed into a sculpture to stand in the grounds of Frome Community College. We will be providing the labour and transport to move this 20 tonne, 80 foot tall Oak tree, which was painted by JMW Turner when it was 30 years old. The proposal is to resurrect this tree on the Frome Community College site as a symbol of aspiration for young people.
Supporting the Local Economy
We support our local community through providing local employment, using local SMEs, and national companies with local depots. We foster long-term partnerships, for example, local company TREADS supply all tyres for our vehicles.
As an SME ourselves, we wholly support the OGC’s Fair payment charter and adhere to its principles. We also like to work closely with small companies to identify future needs so they can plan their workload and resource effectively.
