Air Products Helps Create Safe Environment for Hull’s Young People

Eastside Community Sports Trust Appoints Air Products as Its First Community Sponsor
Air Products (NYSE: APD), a world leading industrial gas company, has become supporter of the Eastside Community Sports Trust in Hull. This sponsorship demonstrates Air Products’ commitment to supporting the communities where it operates.

The Trust has been struggling financially for a number of years. It is only through the determination and hard work of its volunteers that the grounds and facilities have remained open for the local community to enjoy.  Now with the generous support of Air Products, the trust will be able to undertake essential maintenance and upgrades to provide a more welcoming and safe environment for young members.

With one of its operating sites just a few metres away at Saltend Lane, this new sponsorship will fulfil a number of key community relations objectives for Air Products including: closer community support, employee engagement, and the opportunity to share with visitors how gases are used in everyday life.

Inspiring the next generation, Air Products will look to get involved with upcoming events at the Trust, showing its popular liquid nitrogen demonstrations and educating visitors on science and engineering. 

Dean Martin, Hull plant manager at Air Products said: “As a local company, we are very proud to support such a worthwhile facility in the centre of this community. This opportunity is a perfect way for us to really support the well-being of young people, something that is important to us.”

Pete Clarke, Skirlaugh Youth Secretary and Trustee Eastside Community Sports Trust said, “Eastside Community Sports Trust provides sporting opportunities to young people from ages 6-to-18 and we are very pleased to welcome Air Products as our first community partner. The Trust can now look forward to a brighter future and a partnership that will certainly make a difference within our community.”
