Children from Knuzden St. Oswald’s are all smiles as they receive their brand-new football kit, sponsored by Accrington based company, Emerson and Renwick.

The award-winning innovative engineering and technology company is this year celebrating 100 years in business. Emerson and Renwick design, manufacture and install advanced machinery for various markets, with over 80% of the sales exported all over the world.

Andrew McLaughlan, Finance Director at Emerson and Renwick, commented:

“We are very proud to sponsor the school’s football kit. Emerson and Renwick started out in 1918 as a Manufacturer of Textile Finishing Machinery, so we are currently celebrating our centenary year in business. As we’re focusing on the roots of the business this year, we also wanted to go back to our roots and give back to the community who have given so much to us. It’s all about civic pride – helping out a grass-roots football team. We hope they have a very successful season!”

Knuzden St. Oswald’s is a small village school and one of their three main aims is to open up their students’ lives to new possibilities.

Laura Barlow, a teacher at Knuzden St. Oswald’s, said:

“We are really thankful to Emerson and Renwick for sponsoring the football kits for the children. They are all very excited to be wearing the new kits and they look fantastic too! It’s important for the school to become acquainted with people and businesses in and around the community. We have a very strong community ethos and this is a great example to the children of what can be achieved when we work together. We are very grateful to Murray Dawson of Scott Dawson Advertising for connecting us and making this happen.”
