The Jason Roberts Foundation has benefited after investing in portable floodlights from portablefloodlights.com to help with the charity’s work in Grenada.
The Foundation purchased and imported eight portable high powered floodlights and they were showcased at the Shooting Stars Road show back in March 2009 that was launched by former Premier League footballer Andy Cole.
Gary Mulcahey, the Foundation’s Caribbean Development Manager explained that as it gets dark on the island at 6.30pm every night throughout the year, the floodlights have had a huge impact on the community.
The initiative has enabled young people to play organised football between the hours of 6.30 – 8.30 pm across the island. Gary said: “Many young people are excited by the opportunity of playing football after dark.
“It is the Foundation’s primary aim to raise sufficient funds to have a set of floodlights in every parish across the island.”
Given that it is currently necessary to transport the lights to different venues across the island, it was important that the lights would be easy to dismantle and reassemble. Gary has praised the ease of use and quality of the lights and said that he would not hesitate in investing future sponsorship funds in buying more floodlights from portablefloodlights.com.
Otis Roberts, CEO of the Jason Roberts Foundation said “The service and quality of the lights received from portablefloodlights.com has been invaluable and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others.”
Portable Floodlights was created to address the extensive lack of floodlit facilities throughout the UK for football coaching/training and the high associated costs of hiring expensive artificial surfaces or difficulties in raising finance and obtaining planning permission.
