Mick George Ltd, in association with The Hunts Post, is launching its Skip of Gold campaign.

It is providing local sports clubs and community projects with another opportunity to win £1,000.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd, said: “Skip of Gold is an initiative which allows us to delve a little deeper to uncover what it is the people of Huntingdon and the surrounding areas are involved in, so we can invest our money in projects that will directly benefit them.

“Having witnessed first hand how this competition has positively impacted on the winners from previous years, we’re keen to launch the 2017 campaign.”

The Huntingdon-based construction business is welcoming applicants in need of financial assistance.

Throughout the year, Mick George Ltd is continuously supporting the local communities in which the business operates, providing sponsorship arrangements both financially and practically through its service or product provisions.

Some of its existing sporting sponsorships include Godmanchester FC, St Ives Town FC and St Neots FC Academy, on top of other major grants issued to Eaton Socon FC and Eynesbury Rovers FC for facility improvements.
