FW Capital celebrates 2 years in the Tees Valley

It’s now two years since FW Capital set up its Tees Valley office in Billingham and the company, which manages the Tees Valley Catalyst Fund, has teamed up with Billingham RUFC to celebrate.

FW Capital is sponsoring the club’s upcoming friendly against local rivals Guisborough as part of its annual family fun day. The game will raise money for the local Daisy Chain and Count The Kicks charities as well as to boost the club’s own funds.

FW Capital Investment Executive, Chris Johnson said: “We’ve been impressed by the ambition of the businesses we’ve backed in the Tees Valley and many of them have strong links with their communities. Billingham RUFC is a huge asset to the local community and we are delighted to be part of its annual fun day. It should be a great day out and a good-hearted friendly raising plenty of money for the club and two fantastic local causes - Daisy Chain and Count The Kicks.”

FW Capital opened its Billingham office in 2013 to manage the Tees Valley Catalyst Fund for Tees Valley Unlimited. A UK first, the Fund helps businesses based in the Tees Valley and throughout the North East to go for and win larger contracts by providing short-term finance. Since winning the contract, FW Capital has invested £8.4 million, helping to win new business and create jobs locally.

The fun day runs from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 15th August at Billingham RUFC’s Greenwood Road ground and the Guisborough game kicks off at 3pm. Find out more at: www.billinghamrugby.co.uk
