Montrose Football Club and its generous donation
The Montrose Football Club in Scotland got a generous and valuable donation from a local company. £250,000 for a new all-weather pitch for the Links Park Stadium will help the club to reduce maintenance costs and fees for alternative training grounds. The donation will pay for about two thirds of the pitch’s cost, with the remainder coming from sports funding bodies and other local businesses. According to the club’s director of football the donation boosts the club’s five-year development plan. Schools and youth organisations do also benefit from this donation as they will get free access.
