Global manufacturer of off-road haulers, Terex Trucks, has announced a new sponsorship deal with Motherwell-based Cleland Miners Boxing Club.

Support from Terex Trucks will aid the club with updating equipment and helping young members into competitions and events across the country. The company was keen to support the club after learning about the work it does within the Motherwell community, giving local people access to exercise and healthy activities.

Vice-president of Terex Trucks, Paul Douglas, said: “Terex Trucks is very happy to support Cleland Boxing Club, and we hope the sponsorship we provide helps the young people at the club participate fully in their chosen pursuits.

“It is important for companies like Terex Trucks to support organisations such as Cleland Boxing Club in the local communities, we are always looking for talent to join our company, and that talent is developed not just in schools and colleges, but also in organisations and sports clubs such as Cleland Boxing Club.”

The sponsorship comes at an exciting time for the club as one of its members, Stephen Newns, 20, is participating in the Commonwealth Games in Australia this April. Terex Trucks’ support will enable the club to assist Stephen during this intense competition period.

Cleland Miners Boxing Club’s head coach, Ronnie Blackburn, who dedicates his time for free alongside the other coaches James Doherty, Stephen Newns, Joe Townsley and Mark Bett, commented: “Gaining sponsorship from a global company like Terex Trucks is fantastic for the club and we will use the support to contribute even more back into the local community.

“As Stephen prepares to compete at the Commonwealth Games, having the Terex Trucks brand affiliated with the club is really exciting and we will carry its name with pride when we visit Australia in April.”

Terex Trucks’ branding is now on display within the club and on its mini bus, with future plans to create sportswear carrying the company’s logo. The company hopes the collaboration will promote the business and career opportunities to the club and local community.

Global marketing manager, Jacqueline Reid, added: “It is great to be able to support such a respected club. The managers and coaches dedicate so much of their personal time to provide the local community with a facility where they can meet new people and learn new skills whilst getting fitter and participating in a great sport.

Terex Trucks is proud to support local initiatives, having recently collaborated with North Lanarkshire Council’s Supported Enterprise Service that helps disabled and disadvantaged individuals into work.
