Law firm donates £2,500 to Hull amateur football club to help build new facilities

Neil Hudgell Solicitors are donating £2,500 to Hull amateur youth football club, Costello FC to support the building of a new clubhouse. As well as having changing facilities, the clubhouse will also have a café area for members.

Costello FC was formed by a group of volunteers in 2000 and had a team of 15 children. Today the club has around 400 members, aged from five upwards.
In severe flooding in Hull in 2007, the previous clubhouse was badly damaged and later had to be demolished. As a result, since the floods, Costello FC has had no changing facilities for its players.

In 2009, a campaign was started to raise £50,000 for a replacement clubhouse, which has included several sponsored runs. The donation from Neil Hudgell Solicitors will contribute to the fund.

Kerry Johnson, Secretary at Costello FC, said: “We are delighted to be given funding from Neil Hudgell Solicitors which will help us to build our new clubhouse.
“The new building is of great importance to the dignity and wellbeing of the children providing them with changing facilities and a café.

“As well as creating social hub, the club will be able to generate income from the café which will help to sustain the club.”

Neil Hudgell, managing director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, said: “We are proud to help fund the building of Costello FC’s new clubhouse which is such a vital facility.

“Our firm has its roots in its community and is dedicated to supporting local sport initiatives like Costello FC which is run entirely by volunteers and gives so much to its members.”

Neil Hudgell Solicitors are personal injury and medical negligence specialists serving England and Wales from three offices in Hull, one in Leeds and one in the West Midlands.

Costello FC is a Community Charter Standard Club and adheres to strict standards for coaching, child protection and administration.
