Enterprise Academy Future Secure Thanks To Local Law Firm

The Tigers Trust`s highly successful Enterprise Academy can look forward to a secure future after receiving sponsorship from a leading local law firm.

Rollits recently entered into a three-year community sponsorship agreement, providing vital financial support and much more for one of the Tigers Trust`s most celebrated educational programmes.

The Enterprise Academy, which has Hull City Caretaker Manager Nick Barmby as its Ambassador, was set up with the aim of inspiring and challenging youngsters to think about business, using Hull City AFC as a real example that they can relate to and understand. The programme offers various courses that are promoted through local schools and that all have a recognised qualification at the end of them.

Since the formation of the Enterprise Academy, hundreds of local youngsters have gained qualifications and now, thanks to Rollits, many more can look forward to participating.

Steve Trynka, Senior Partner at the law firm and a keen follower of the Tigers, is delighted that Rollits has teamed up with the Tigers Trust and, more specifically, the Enterprise Academy.

"As a law firm, we wanted to get involved with Hull City but we also wanted it to be something that involved the community as well," said Steve.

"One of the Rollits slogans is `More Than A Law Firm` and we are heavily involved with many charities. We have somebody on the board of the Children`s University and a number of our partners are governors at local schools.

"We felt that supporting the Tigers Trust and their Enterprise Academy was a better fit for us than anything else. Sponsoring in this way also means that we can be really involved in what the Enterprise Academy does."

John Davies, Manager of the Tigers Trust, is delighted that Rollits have pledged their support to the Enterprise Academy.

"The sponsorship from Rollits was vitally important to support an already successful project in the shape of the Enterprise Academy and it has enabled us to extend the project for a further three years," said Davies.

"Having a highly respected local company on board is vital for the young people in terms of supporting their employability skills as well as helping to develop their CV writing, personal and interview skills.

"The staff at Rollits have been very supportive and hands-on. They have been involved in a number of activities already and last month, they travelled down to London with a team from Andrew Marvell School to represent us in a competition run by the Premier League."
