Falck Safety Services help put the pride back into Teesside
STAFF and trainees at Falck Safety Services, a world leader in the offshore and maritime sector, are backing the ‘Spirit of Teesside’ campaign being run by Middlesbrough F C.
Falck Safety Services, which delivers safety training to over 260,000 people each year, is proud to support the drive, which is highlighting why the football club's people and businesses are right to be proud of their roots.
At tomorrow evening's Middlesbrough versus Doncaster Rovers match, retired workers from the steel, chemicals and shipbuilding industries will join representatives of groups from across the area as guests in the Middlehaven Suite, which will be renamed The Spirit of Teesside Suite for the night.
Awards will be presented to a number of champions who have epitomised Teesside’s spirit through their actions and achievements. Match tickets will be given to apprentices from the TTE Technical Training Group, which supports 600 youngsters through apprenticeships each year.
The match theme is inspired by Boro Chairman Steve Gibson, who said: “The spirit of Teesside is in its people and we want to harness that spirit to inspire the team.”
Niel Rennie, finance firector at Falck, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to publically back this fantastic campaign. Teesside is going from strength to strength, particularly in sectors such as ours, the offshore and onshore energy industries. The area is rapidly developing a world-class reputation as a key player in this important sector.
“Teesside has so much to offer from its industry to its people, and dare I say it, the excellence of its football team! On behalf of Falck, I’d like to wish Boro all the very best for this Friday.”
Tickets for the 7.45pm kick-off are priced £12 for adults and £7 for concessions in the first price promotion of the 2013/14 campaign, with prices also reduced for all hospitality packages. They are on sale either in person at the Riverside and Captain Cook Square ticket offices or 24 hours by phone on 0844 499 1234.
