GMB UNION IN SUPPORT OF JAMIE POWELL AT THE LACROSSE FINAL.
We wish Jamie and his team all the very best of luck in Hong Kong, our union is behind you. As a trade union we understand how hard it is for amateur sports people to support their passion and keen to help Jamie and the Lacrosse team Great Britain, as we do in the workplace for people on the shop floor.
Jamie sent us this message,
''Hi GMB union NW&I,
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the region for the sponsorship which is helping me in my quest to represent GB and England in two world tournaments over the next 12 months.
Over the Christmas period I have been representing Great Britain at the Lacrosse World Sixes Tournament in Hong Kong. As I write, we have successfully beaten The Philippines, Hong Kong, Japan & China to progress to the Gold Medal Final game against Germany on Sunday 31st Dec.
The opportunity of playing in the far east with the different time zones and climate has been a real experience and one I could not be enjoying without your support.
As you may know, Lacrosse is an amateur sport in the UK, so we have to support ourselves, including the purchase of our own kit and contribute travel fares, so your amazing contribution is not only helping me support my dream but also (hopefully)making people proud.
One more game to go, let's hope it Gold.
Thanks GMB union''
