Simon Wilson, Head of Marketing at Hudgell Solicitors said, “The Electric Eels team has grown considerably since they formed in 2013, increasing its membership so that more disabled people in the Hull area can get involved in sports activity. We’re delighted to be able to support the team and hope that the new equipment will help towards a good start to the new season.”
