Farsley groups boosted by donations

A Pudsey-based property specialist has supported two community initiatives in Farsley as part of their community initiative for 2020.

Linley & Simpson, who have a branch on Robin Lane, have committed to supporting and giving back to these areas by releasing a £30,000 pot for community groups, schools and sports clubs to apply for.

The Pudsey branch, based on Robin Lane, has donated £500 to Farsley Celtic Ladies football club to buy a new kit for this coming season, as well as balls, bibs and waterproof jackets.

Adrian Sparrow, who works at the club said:

“We are one or the largest ladies football clubs in West Yorkshire, we have three ladies teams playing 11 aside in local country leagues and now the north East regional league following promotion from last season. We are part of a wider club that has a further 16 teams from juniors at u6 to men’s teams. Farsley Celtic juniors have provided football in the community for forty years and we are glad to be a part of that.

“The ladies section costs over 5k per year to run and the ladies fund this mainly through the collection of subscriptions. We have ladies of all abilities ranging from ex national League to new to football players. We try to include as many people as we can.”

The branch has also linked up with Farsley in Bloom by donating £250 to fund a planter in Farsley village. The organisation is looking to fund four planters in total and is hoping to seek support from local businesses in the area. 

All the groups will benefit from Linley & Simpson’s Give Back Scheme, where the business will donate £250 to the community group or school when someone lets or sells a property through them and is associated with that group or school.
