BOSP – Brighter Opportunities through Supported Play
Savings Guru are delighted to announce a new sponsorship and community partnership for 2018-19.
Billericay Town FC striker, Jake Robinson, will be sponsored by the firm for the 2018-19 season. Savings Guru will donate £10 to Billericay based charity BOSP for every goal the forward scores in all competitions for the club.
Robinson joined Billericay for a (then) club record fee in 2017 with the former Brighton striker scoring a phenomenal 57 goals last season including the goal of the season from inside his own half away at Dulwich Hamlet.
‘I’m delighted to be sponsored by the Savings Guru. I hope it’s a memorable season for Billericay Town and that I can bang a few more goals in and raise plenty of money for BOSP’ said Robinson.
Chairman of the Trustees for BOSP, Joe Lane, said ‘We are delighted that the Savings Guru will donate £10 for every goal that Jake scores - and what a start with 4 in the back of the net in his first game of the season!’
‘This really is the local community working with local charities via our local football club’.
‘BOSP look after over 600 children and young people with very serious disabilities all over Essex and rely 100% on donations’.
James Blower, Founder of Savings Guru, said ‘we are proud to support Jake, who is the best striker in the National League South in my opinion. BOSP do superb work in Essex and we are delighted to partner with them to support them alongside our sponsorship. We hope Jake and Billericay have memorable seasons and hope to be handing over a large sum to them at the end of the season!’
