NORTHERN Ireland’s Little Wing Pizzeria is dishing out sports bursaries to five local sports clubs as part of its Little Wing’s Little Sports Stars scheme.
The bursary programme was open to all local children’s sports clubs located nearby each of Little Wing’s branches and the five lucky clubs awarded were Bangor Rugby Club, City of Belfast Swimming Club, Junior Belfast Giants, Holywood Rugby Football Club and Ormeau Table Tennis Club.
The teams were invited to submit a 300 word application to be in the running to win the bursary and the winning teams received £500 each.
Commenting on the sports bursary winners, Luke Wolsey, Managing Director of Little Wing Pizzeria said:
“We are always looking for ways to support the local communities where the Little Wing Pizzeria branches are located and the Little Wing Little Sports Stars bursary is a way of doing this.
“It was a tough call to pick five teams to reward from all the entries we received but I am thrilled to be able to present the bursaries to the winners.
“We hope the money will offer the teams some much needed financial assistance to help towards the general running of the club whether it is new sporting kits, equipment or even a chance to treat the kids to a fun day at their clubs,”
Little Wing is part of the Beannchor Group, Ireland’s largest hospitality group, which boasts a portfolio of over 50 pubs, hotels and restaurants across Northern Ireland.
