Wise Financial Consultancy has been the club’s main sponsor since
season 2008/09 after we were approached by one of our senior players
Gavin Wise, who had established his own financial consulting company.
As well as helping is to purchase a newly designed
team strip when required the funding has been used to further the development
of junior hockey in the town and was a key element in the club establishing
a Hartlepool Hockey Action Group in partnership with local Secondary
Schools, Hartlepool Borough Council, Tees Valley Sport and the England
Hockey Board. One of the early successes of this group was to be able
to appoint a Community Hockey Coach to develop hockey in both Secondary
and Primary Schools.
The funding provided by Wise Financial Consultancy
was a key factor in HCHC obtaining a Sport England Small Grant of £10000
in the autumn of 2011 which was targeted at the first of a three year
programme to develop a Club Schools Link in the town and junior hockey
teams within the club as key elements in the aim to gain Club Mark accreditation
by October 2012.
