We pride ourselves on being able to make a difference to the local community and hope we can once again get involved with any future opportunities to show our support.”
Joe Bennett, Manager of Thurrock Whites under 15s football club, added: “Wearing the club’s new kit is really important to the players as it gives them a huge sense of pride. It’s fantastic that a local business like Mercedes-Benz Lakeside supports us, as it means we can save money on kits and equipment and invest in other areas to make the games the best possible experience we can.
“All the boys would like to extend their thanks to Ify Madueke and the Mercedes-Benz dealership; it really means a lot to them that Ify took the time to come down and watch them train as well as get to know the players.”
