The Essex branch has sponsored a young footballer, enabling him to sign trainee forms to join professional team Southend United.
Alessandro Speight, 10, had previously played for West Ham United and Ipswich Town, but decided to join Southend as they are local and felt he had “a great chance of progressing with them”.
The sponsorship will enable Alessandro to join Southend’s tour of Germany later in the season, while also securing his place on its training programme this year.
Branch director, Mark Ward, said: “This, along with our sponsorship of Wickford Town U13 shows our commitment to supporting our local community.”
MKM Building Supplies will appear alongside Alessandro’s name in every home fixture programme this season.
