As part of CarShop’s ‘Summer of Sport’ sponsorship of The Forum’s big screen, the used car retailer ran a competition whereby local children could enter to win a Norwich City Football Club Academy training session. True to the ‘sport’ theme, CarShop asked children between the ages 4 and 16 to design a football at their CarShop design stand. Scoring with an overwhelming response, CarShop received some ‘very impressive designs’.
With only forty spaces to fill and hundreds of entries to appraise, CarShop required some judging assistance and asked for the help of the Norwich City Football Club.
John Ruskin, CarShop Norwich Retail Manager commented: “We’ve had such a great reception at all of our ‘Summer of Sport” events, but the response to this one in particular has been pretty astounding, and we’ve had some fantastic entries.
“The guys from Norwich City have been very supportive of us, and we cannot thank them enough for giving us the opportunity to help local children get involved in sport…with the Academy no less.
“We’d also like to recognise The Forum as they facilitated this whole competition, by allowing us to be part of their big screen showings, and run events within their grounds.”
The training day will take place on Tuesday 2nd September, right at the end of the summer holidays, and will undoubtedly put the children in good stead for the academic year ahead. Bernie Whelan, Sales Manager Norwich City Football Club, stated: “We were all pretty excited when CarShop became the first ever sponsors of our Academy Jackpot. Since coming on board we’ve jointly developed a number of initiatives, one of which was the ‘design a ball’ competition.
“The response to this has been overwhelming and we were delighted to see that so many children are interested in football, and supporting the Academy. After all, some of these may be stars of the future!”
