Ayr Seaforth coaches have been kitted out in new all-weather jackets, thanks to a sponsorship deal with Ayr based Albion Environmental Ltd, one of the UK’s leading consultants specialising in waste management, environmental, health and safety solutions.
The Club has over 40 volunteer coaches, who regularly brave the wind and rain at training sessions and competitions, to coach the Club’s 300+ athletes in all track and field disciplines, as well as cross country and road running.Managing Director Alasdair Meldrum said: “Albion Environmental Ltd is delighted to purchase these weather-proof jackets for the coaches at Ayr Seaforth. The coaches are all volunteers who give up their time to support the athletes on a regular basis, and without them the Club would not enjoy the success it does. Coaching occurs outdoors, all year round and often the weather can be less than perfect, so having the jackets helps the coaches stay warm and dry. A warm and dry coach is usually a happier coach and we’re delighted to play a small part in helping and supporting a great athletics club!”
Club President Kenny McAlpine said: “Ayr Seaforth is a community club and all our coaches who are volunteers come from the local community. It’s fantastic to be supported in this way by a leading business like Albion Environmental.”
