- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Students at Pembrokeshire College continue to benefit from the support Valero has given to the College’s Sports Academy over the last 10 years. A donation of £14,000 has been used to help students develop their skills in sports such as netball, football, rugby and golf.
The Academy’s aim is also to engender skills and confidence that will help students in every area of life. Jane James, Public, Policy and Government Affairs Manager at Valero’s Pembroke refinery, said, “Valero remains committed to supporting sport in Pembrokeshire. As well as helping to develop sporting excellence, the talents they can learn through sport will give them an excellent grounding throughout their professional life. Helping children and teenagers to develop their full potential is something that is very important to us.” In addition to the donation, Valero has provided windbreakers for all the sportsmen and women.
The Academy’s coach Kevin Hopkins said, “We value the support that the College has had from Valero to help our work in the community and to give those in the Academy the opportunity to experience cross-college competitions with both male and female participants. This support makes a difference to these talented young people and helps them to stretch their skills and instil a professional approach to their sporting development.”
