Netball sponsorship delivers wellbeing boost

Somerset Care colleagues are among those benefitting from a boost to their physical and emotional wellbeing, thanks to sponsorship from the not-for-profit care provider. 

Employees Amy Yapp and Louise Schooley, from the organisation’s residential care and IT teams, are members of the T-Birds, a Taunton-based social netball team sponsored by Somerset Care. The team play in a social league run by the Somerset Activity Sports Partnership (SASP), which is dedicated to increasing the health and happiness of people in Somerset through physical activity and sport.

Louise Schooley, Somerset Care’s IT and Systems Manager, explains:

“The T-Birds are a Taunton-based team of people who enjoy playing netball socially. We practice every Wednesday night at King’s College School, from 7.30pm to 9pm, and games are held on Thursday evenings at Taunton School. 

“Somerset Care have kindly sponsored the team as part of the organisation’s wellbeing strategy – it’s a brilliant boost to know that the company you work for is so invested in your health outside of work, as well as in your job. 

“We’re always happy to welcome new players and supporters, so if you’re interested in some time on court or supporting from the sidelines, we would love to hear from you!”

To find out more about joining or supporting the T-Birds netball team, please contact Louise Schooley.
