A business in Barrow is aspiring to give back to the community by sponsoring a local football team.

Furness Heating Ltd, located on Abbey Road, announced on Wednesday that it would be the main shirt sponsor with Walney Island FC’s under-15 side.

The business explained that their support of the club was designed to have a more far reaching impact beyond the sport.

They said: "It’s about investing in our community’s future and showing that buying local means investing local.

"This season, we’re not just backing a team; we’re championing the dreams of young athletes and the vibrant spirit of Walney Island - let’s make this season one for the history books!"

Furness Heating will be a part of the football side's exploits ahead of what is hoped will be a 'thrilling' season across 2024 and 2025.
