Home sponsor: Access Training

Cadbury donate opportunity to leading local training provider

27 June 2022

Nottingham-based Access Training (East Midlands) Ltd has been chosen as our home Front-of-Shirt sponsor for the 2022-23 football season.

Following on from Sharpes of Nottingham’s sponsorship over the last two seasons, this agreement has once again been made possible thanks to the generosity of Cadbury, the nation’s favourite chocolate, who have donated this advertising opportunity to Access Training, thus enabling one of the East Midlands’ leading independent training providers to reach a much wider cohort of the region’s learners and their families.

Season ticket holders were invited to nominate the company they worked for to receive this incredible opportunity and, in recognition of the amazing work they have done in helping the local community throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Cadbury chose Access Training from a number of other very strong contenders.

The new home shirt, complete with Access Training’s logo, will be revealed on Friday 1 July.

Corrina Hembury, Managing Director of Access Training, said: “Working with Notts County and Cadbury in this way is such an exciting opportunity for us.

“Our region’s young learners and job seekers have been hit hard by Covid. We offer them a helping hand in improving their skills, building their confidence, offering pastoral care and improving their employability.

“We’re looking forward to working together with the club on an exciting schedule of activities for the year ahead and giving even more local people access to the futures they deserve.”

Head of Commercial at Notts County, Jordan Worthington, said: “Engaging our fans, their families and the wider community has long been a cornerstone of our historic club.

“Access Training has touched the lives of thousands of people over its nearly 40-year heritage. Inviting them to become our 2022-23 home Front-of-Shirt sponsor will allow us to match our supporters – whether they be learners, their family members or local business owners – with appropriate skills training.”

Commenting Nick Rogers, Cadbury Sponsorship Lead, added: “There’s perhaps no better way to empower young people than by giving them access to practical training and education.

“During a time of economic uncertainties, bringing together Access Training and Notts County in this way aims to raise awareness of the important opportunities and resources available to support young people in their local communities.

“Cadbury was founded on the ethos of generosity and we’re extremely proud to support this work, which builds on our other collaborations with football clubs across the UK and deepens the positive impact we are able to have.”
