PETIT Valley United were granted an early Christmas, or rather season, gift after their sponsorship request to Huawei Technologies (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited was given approval to the sum of $45000.
The one year agreement would see Huawei’s logo on Petit Valley’s kit for next season’s edition of the Super League as the company covered the cost of registration along with new uniforms.
Tricia Henry, Public Relations Manager for Huawei T&T , reiterated some of the reasons for the deal as she stated, “basically we have been operating in T&T just over 10 years now and we take our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR ) very seriously in every country we engage in, and Trinidad is no different as we recognize this as a major market in the English Speaking Caribbean.”
She went on to explain, “we want to see the growth of sport throughout the country and when they (Petit Valley United) approached us, we did not hesitate to assist them.”
The organization views this strategy as one way they can interact and communicate with the community as they plan to continue investments, not just through football and sport, but throughout various channels in society.
Manager of Petit Valley United, Derek Edwards, also gave his nod to the new sponsorship agreement by stating, “we are grateful that they came to our assistance, after we applied, as we look forward to a successful season and working with them in the future.”
