Premier Day for Champion Manufacturer




Retired Manchester City goal keeper and Manchester City in the Community (CITC) representative Alex Williams dropped into Duo with the club's most prized possession - the Barclays Premier League Trophy.

The trophy visit came about after Duo won a competition organised by the Corporate Banking team at Barclays, following Duo's response to a Barclays Business Confidence survey. Managing director of the family run firm, David Brimelow, explained: "We were absolutely thrilled when we found out we'd won.  Our Manchester site is a stone's throw from the Etihad Stadium so it's a really special day for our whole company - even the United supporters in our team got behind the occasion!

"As well as being a great perk for the team, we quickly realised that we could use our good fortune to raise some funds for MCLFC. It's a fantastic grass roots club which encourages girls of all ages to get involved in the beautiful game."

All Duo employees and their families joined in the fun and had their picture taken with trophy in return for a donation to MCLFC. So far £1,000 has been raised, with more donations expected in the next few days.

Alison Smith, MCFLC secretary, who also attended the event, said: "The ladies first team has had its most successful season yet, winning the Premier League Northern and with it promotion to the top flight of women's football, the National Division, so we're already on a real high. This event with Duo is the icing on the cake - we are a really vibrant club with around 130 members aged nine upwards, but we're always keen to boost numbers. Events like this really help us get this message out there, as well as bring in some much needed funds."

Alex, who is now Connell Awards Manager of CITC, Manchester City's community programme, also donated a signed photograph. He added: "It's been a great day; Manchester City is at the heart of the community, and I'm honoured to be able to share this day with people in our local area."

Thank you to all of our customers, suppliers, friends and family members of our employees for their generosity during the day. We are happy to announce that in total we raised a fantastic £1,000 for the MCLFC and we wish them all the success for the following season.
