Sports clubs and community groups can win £1,000 with Skip of Gold.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd, said: “Skip of Gold is an initiative which allows us to delve a little deeper to uncover what it is the people of Peterborough and the surrounding areas are involved in, so we can invest our money in projects that will directly benefit them.

“Having witnessed first hand how this competition has positively impacted on the winners from previous years, we’re keen to launch the 2018 campaign.”

The local construction business is welcoming applicants in need of financial assistance. Throughout the year, Mick George Ltd is continually supporting local communities in which the business operates, providing sponsorship arrangements both financially and practically through its service or product provisions.
