Tas­tee serves up Hum­ble Lion spon­sor­ship

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

TAS­TEE LIM­ITED took an­other step to­wards up­lift­ing the de­vel­op­ment of sports within this coun­try as pen was put to paper and a to­tal of $350,000 was do­nated to the Hum­ble Lion Foot­ball Club.

The pre­sen­ta­tion was made dur­ing half-time of the Red Stripe Pre­mier League show­down be­tween Hum­ble Lion and Maverly-Hugh­en­den on Sun­day at the Ef­fortville Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in May Pen, Claren­don.

Michael Pringle, tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of the Hum­ble Lion, was ab­so­lutely elated as he ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to­wards the spon­sor­ship and noted that it would go a far way in their pur­suit of the pre­mier league ti­tle.

“This spon­sor­ship can go a far way in terms of the whole op­er­a­tion of the club, we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it be­cause in these test­ing times to get a con­tri­bu­tion like this is re­ally dif­fi­cult. We have sev­eral bills to take care of on a daily ba­sis and this has re­ally as­sisted with that,” Pringle said.

“It also serves as a cat­a­lyst to­wards our ti­tle charge, we are faced by many ob­sta­cles on a daily ba­sis such as a player be­ing in­jured and that in­stantly brings forth an ex­pense. At that point, med­i­ca­tion and treat­ment is in­stantly needed, and these are chal­lenges we are faced with on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. This do­na­tion has come at the right time when we are in need of it and it will go a far way,” he added.

Mar­ket­ing and pub­lic re­la­tions man­ager for Tas­tee Ltd, Tara Goul­bourne, noted that the com­pany was very happy to be as­so­ci­ated with the Hum­ble Lion Foot­ball Club.

“Sports de­vel­op­ment plays a great part in our cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­grammes. As Tas­tee Ltd con­tin­ues to cel­e­brate its 50th an­niver­sary, we thought it fit­ting to spon­sor the

Hum­ble Lion Foot­ball Club, a team that has seen vast growth and de­vel­op­ment since mak­ing their Pre­mier League de­but in the 2009/2010 sea­son ... . We look for­ward to build­ing a solid re­la­tion­ship for years to come.”
