This weekend’s main match sponsor is Harrison Drury, a firm of solicitors that will need little introduction to many at Hoppers and having recently advised Kirkby Lonsdale RFC there may be split loyalties!
The Preston-headquartered firm is led by John Chesworth who spent 13 seasons playing for the first team and is still actively involved in the club as a member of the management committee.
Over the past 10 years, John has overseen impressive growth at Harrison Drury which now has five offices across the North West and 100 employees including thriving offices in Kendal and Lancaster.
The firm’s tagline is “We Make It Possible”, a philosophy it applies to all areas of its business, whether it’s the advice it gives to clients, it’s dealings with the community, or it’s relationship with employees.
It’s an ethos that’s won the firm numerous awards, including twice being named in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For list in 2016 and 2017 and Lancashire Law Firm of the year in 2014 and 2017.
Harrison Drury also has a strong community spirit, with employees actively encouraged to support voluntary and community initiatives.
“It’s important to us to play an active role in the community and that includes supporting everyone in the Hoppers family,” explains John. “We have been a club sponsor at Hoppers for many years now and our Preston Grasshoppers Scheme, which sees a percentage of legal fees donated to the club, has proved popular among members.
“Harrison Drury is delighted to be sponsoring today’s game and we thoroughly hope Hoppers can continue our promising start to the season, and Kirkby maybe get a bonus point. We wish players and officials on both sides the best of luck for today’s game and hope our guests and all supporters thoroughly enjoy the day.”
*Harrison Drury’s Preston Grasshoppers Scheme is exclusive to Hoppers members and their families. It offers a 5% discount on legal fees and a 5% donation to the club.
