The St Michael’s boys’ school football teams are sporting a new look thanks to Integrated Water Services
Integrated Water Services (IWS) have teamed up with one of our key suppliers LA Safety Supplies to provide brand new Nike football strips for the St Michael’s Church of England High School’s boys’ football teams from Year 7 through to Year 11.
Walsall based IWS have funded the kits due to the company’s roots in the local area and as part of their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility for 2017/18. Birmingham based LA Safety Supplies have provided all embroidery and printing to the shirts free of charge in support of IWS’s commitment to this initiative.
St Michael’s is a Full Service Extended School and prides itself in providing all students with a wide range of learning opportunities and excellent levels of care, guidance and support. Each year group has an exceptionally skilled football team.
IWS, part of SSI Services and South Staffordshire Plc, provides specialist services in all aspects of water hygiene, abstraction, distribution, analysis and treatment, distribution network repair and maintenance, rehabilitation, alteration and extension. IWS supplies a wide range of services to the public sector, utility companies, industrial, commercial and retail customers.
Steve Suffolk, Managing Director of IWS Mechanical and Electrical, said: “As a local business, IWS are extremely proud to put our name onto the new football kit for the St Michael’s school teams. We wish them continued success in their new strips.”
Chris Brown, Managing Director of IWS Water Hygiene added: “We are always on the lookout for ways for the company to give back to the local community, so it is our pleasure to sponsor the St Michael’s football teams. We look forward to following their progress and wish them the very best for the season ahead.”
The school’s Head of PE, Glen Gibbons said, “We are very grateful to have such great support from SSI Services, IWS and their suppliers. The kit will come into regular use this season with all our teams competing in numerous inter-school competitions.”
