"I cannot over emphasise the loyalty, commitment and support John Stone has afforded our club.
Over a sustained amount of time, John has invested his time and financial backing to grassroots sports meaning children of all backgrounds have the chance to shine.
This year has been particularly difficult for Portico Vine as we try to recover following the lockdowns and impact the pandemic had on junior sport across the region and country.
This simply phenomenal amount of sponsorship, gifted by Stone Tyres St Helens and their sister company Gorilla Tyres - Mobile Tyre Fitting, will ensure even more people within our community will benefit from John’s unwavering generosity.
Not only has John provided a playing kit for our ever expanding U9 team and kitted out the Senior Committee and Sub Committee with brand new polo shirts, resulting in a shared identity throughout the club, he has now invested in coaching courses for more of our volunteers.
Put simply, Stone Tyres and Gorilla Tyres via John’s direction have ensured the future development of our club from our young players, to the coaches and all the volunteers in between"
