‘Junior Fitba’ is a big-ish deal in Scotland, especially in the West Coast. It may not be as big as it used to be but there is certainly still community spirit which is definitely alive and kicking at Cumnock Juniors FC.
If you follow Junior Football at all, you might notice that Cumnock’s away top features a very special logo this year – Create a Smile Scotland! This is all thanks to a very kind-hearted group of people.
Usually when sponsoring a team, your logo goes on the front of the shirt to advertise your business. This year however, a group of 5 local businesses came together to form a consortium and sponsor CJFC. Rather than getting exposure for their businesses they decided to showcase a local charity and raise that charity’s profile.
When approached, we were over the moon that they had chosen CASS to promote on the front, especially with it being on the away kit; raising awareness of CASS across Scotland. We’d like to say a great big THANK YOU to Kings Homes, W.R. Accountants, Resolute Financial Advisers, Charlesfort and Kerr& Smith for choosing our charity. It’s a great way for us to increase awareness about the work we’re doing to help reduce social isolation in our local communities. These 5 businesses have really shown that community spirit can have such a big impact and we’re over the moon at the kindness they have shown us.
Social isolation can have a debilitating effect on health, both physically and mentally. Here at CASS, we’re trying to combat social isolation through a range of groups, events and programmes that all promote social inclusion, and of course fun!
