Over the next few weeks we will be featuring the most selfless of individuals/businesses who have supported us in more ways than one over recent months and years. We will be sharing details of our kit sponsors which has provided our children the opportunity to wear the green and gold with pride when representing the club all round the North West.
First up is U7/U8 shirt sponsor Paul Nulty.
1. Who are you and what do you do?
My story is a simple one really. I am Paul Nulty, a foster carer for Knowsley Council. I also look after a young adult with autism a couple of days a week.
2. Why do you give back to your local community?
I live and work in my local community so try to give back when I can. Be this monetary value or my time. I first came across Portico Vine around 20 years ago. A friend of mine, Rob Lloyd had his lad playing in the u 8s. So I would go along and watch. When his younger lad started in the U 7s he started coaching. He asked me to help him out and we done around four years coaching. I met Skez there has his lad, Conner was in my team. Sadly the team disbanded around u12s and my coaching career was over. I sort of dipped in now and again due to Skez involvement in Portico Vine.
3. Why choose Portico Vine ARLFC?
The reasons for this are for me quite easy. Whilst, in my opinion Portico Vine may not have the kudos of Blackbrook, Rylands or St Judes but it is a genuine community based club. I feel any parent can genuinely get involved and contribute to making it better. The kids are also involved in this and feel part of a team and not just a named club.
4. Where can we find details of your business/organisation?
I don’t have a business. I am a proud volunteer and supporter of Portico Vine 💚💛
