IMG_1821On March 30th Branded announced its first Win a Sports Kit” competition in conjunction with the Colchester Gazette and the Evening Echo to celebrate the launch of their new showroom at Moorside, Colchester.

Branded provides school uniforms, sportswear and work wear individually styled with the organisations logo and is a new division of Sportsafe UK.

The competition had an incredible number of responses, recording the highest number of entries a Newsquest reader competition has ever received.

Brightlingsea Regents Ladies FC U14’s were announced as the winners and Lauren Woodiwiss (captain) wasted no time in calling to arrange their visit to the Branded showroom.

The team had never had an away kit and have had to borrow a strip from the boy’s team, so they knew exactly what they were going to use the prize for.

Dave Woodiwiss, father of Lauren the captain of the Under 14’s said

“The girls are over the moon with their new away strips and love playing in them.  A huge thank you to the Gazette, Branded and Carl for such a great competition, kit and service.”

The new kits were delivered last week just in time for the under 14’s tournament at the weekend – don’t they look great!
