The club is proud to announce that it has today agreed a two-year partnership with tootoot, a pupil voice and safeguarding app set up by local entrepreneurs Michael Brennan and Kieran Innes.
With over 500,000 pupils already using the service in schools and sports clubs globally, the platform gives young people the voice to speak to safeguarding and welfare officers if they are being bullied or experiencing a tough time in their lives.
Michael and Kieran are former pupils of Berwick Academy, each with their own personal story to tell. The tootoot logo will proudly adorn the left sleeve of the clubs home and away kits for the next two seasons.
Commenting on the partnership on behalf of the club, director Dave Buglass said
“We were keen way back at when we began at the club to look for a charitable partner that not only can extend our reach outside of Berwick upon Tweed, but also one that may be of use to our own younger fans and followers.
“We knew of the work Michael and Kieran had done and the success they had in setting up this business, and we are thrilled they took the chance to agree.
“The pair are another fine example of locals that worked hard on something that they believed in and experienced themselves.”
Michael Brennan, tootoot co-founder and CEO commented:
“We are absolutely delighted that Berwick Rangers, David and the team have recognised tootoot’s success both locally and nationally and we are very proud that tootoot’s logo will be worn on the left sleeve of the clubs home and away kits for the next two seasons.
“Our mission is to give children and young people a voice to raise concerns in education and sport, and so this partnership will continue to remind children, young people and the community that it is important to speak out about concerns that may be affecting their well-being.
“Berwick is an incredible place and by building partnerships within the community and supporting one another, we will achieve great things as a town.”
