Tyre awards & more: Independent journalists, consumer champions, environmental bodies and tyre buyers have one thing in common: they give Continental awards
Continental really are a top tyre company, with many quality achievements and top tyre test results, winning some of the top tyre awards.
Continental tyres are second to none as far as research and development goes. They are always contributing to environmental issues and trying out new ideas and using different products to use in place of the dirty oil based materials. These are the bad materials that cause greenhouse gases.
Continental also support women’s football. Continental tyres are supporting their third season of sponsorship of The FA WSL and would you believe it they have committed themselves to a further four years of support from 2014-2018 to partner the women’s game. This also includes support to the England Women’s Team, The FA Women’s Cup, and the newly extended FA WSL and The FA WSL Continental Cup. In addition, Continental will continue to support The FA Girls Football Festivals; a national programme to increase participation at grassroots level.
This brings me onto the next football story on a more local level. Continental have contributed and large number of training vests and warm up kits. As well as training aids to one of our local ladies open age football teams. The under tens girls team of the Tingley Athletic football club here in Yorkshire UK.
Continental Tyres and Pellon Tyre & AutoCentre Ltd support Grass roots football
The Tingley U10s Girls received a Continental Warm up Kit to boost their training supplies this week after a kind donation by Continental. Debbie Bastow, who manages the Open Age Ladies team at Tingley. She also works at Pellon Tyre & AutoCentre Ltd, Halifax. It was agreed after a meeting recently with the Continental rep. He said that he would be happy to continue their ongoing support with grassroots football by giving a warm up kit. The kit consists of bibs, balls, cones, bag and pop up goal.
Nicola Smith who manages the U10s has been doing a great job this season. The team is growing in confidence and skills. They are currently looking for new players to join next season and will be training throughout the summer, they play in the West Riding Junior Girls Football League. They generally have matches every weekend. It is a good thing when giant companies like Continental tyres can take time out to help the female game at a local level.
