Bath Spa FC has become the latest sports team to receive sponsorship and refillable bottles from Wessex Water, as part of a campaign to promote the health and cost benefits of tap water.
Wessex Water has sponsored their new jackets and provided the whole team with refillable water bottles to help them stay warm and hydrated on match days.
Club president Rory Wilson said: “Gaining sponsorship from a local company like Wessex Water has benefitted our team massively, as it has helped us to buy new jackets for every team member.
“They have also kindly provided the whole team with water bottles to help us stay hydrated. We are very grateful for their support.”
Wessex Water’s Matt Wheeldon, who presented the bottles to the team, said: “We are very happy to support Bath Spa FC and we hope their new refillable water bottles will help them to stay hydrated throughout the season, while also helping them to use less single-use plastics.”
The kit sponsorships and water bottle donations are part of Wessex Water’s Hydrate Feel Great campaign, which promotes the health and cost benefits of drinking tap water opposed to other alternatives.
The campaign also aims to reduce the use of single-use plastics by encouraging people to use refillable bottles rather than buying bottled drinks.
