Berwick Wildcats receive donation boost

A generous north east-based payroll, software and outsourcing business has donated £500 to support female football in Berwick.

The Payroll Software and Services Group (The PSSG), who are based at Hoults Yard in Newcastle, made the donation to the Berwick Rangers Community Foundation to support the Berwick Wildcats girls’ football group. The award is part of a generous donation programme that has seen them support nine girls’ and women’s sporting groups and clubs across the country.

The donation tops-off a great few months for the Wildcats, coming only six weeks after they won the Northumberland FA grassroots project of the year at their annual awards.

Commenting on the donation, CEO of The PSSG, Eric Dunmore, said: “We are delighted to support the Berwick Rangers Wildcats girls’ football programme, which was nominated by our colleague, Jennifer Wallace, along with eight other women’s sports teams nationwide.

“The initiative was inspired by the success of the England women at the Euro 2022 final.”

The money will help the Wildcats with their expansion plans to allow more local girls and women to enjoy training, playing and coaching football.
