Scott Bros. is helping Middlesbrough Disabled Supporters Association (MDSA) hit the road for Boro’s new Championship season by fuelling its minibus for away-day travel.
Ahead of the first match of the season, a 300-mile round trip to Millwall in South London on 4th August, Scott Bros. has renewed its ongoing support of the MDSA.
Before each trip to one of Boro’s opponents in away league and cup fixtures, the association will fill up their minibus with diesel at Scott Bros.’ business park where the company fuels its fleet of more than 50 tipper trucks, lorries and vans.
Established in 1990, the MDSA arranges tickets and transport for disabled Middlesbrough FC supporters, who, in many cases, would otherwise be unable to attend matches.
Paddy Cronesberry MBE, Chairman at MDSA, said: “Backing from local businesses like Scott Bros. is essential for the opportunities we give disabled Boro supporters throughout the season. We have a great relationship with Scott Bros. and are extremely grateful for their ongoing support.”
Peter Scott, Transport Manager at Scott Bros., said: “At Scott Bros. we are committed to supporting local organisations and initiatives. As a company based in the heart of Teesside, we are delighted to help champion the Boro by providing the fuel to take the MDSA around the country.”
“It’s an exciting season ahead for the Boro and we’re all backing them to get back in to the Premier League. I’m sure the support they’ll get from Boro fans, including MDSA members, will spur them on to promotion.”
