Our Sponsor Spotlight highlights the current operations and offerings of our club sponsors during these most difficult of times.
These organisations have supported our club throughout some arduous years, and we hope that these segments allow in part for us to return the favour.
We hope you consider our valued partners during this time if you have the opportunity to do so.
The following is a message from Stockport Gin.
It’s been a long time coming!!!
We launched Stockport Gin in March last year (2019) with just our Original Edition Gin!
Then along came our 2nd release – Twist of Lime Edition in July 2019, which was actually a limited edition called ‘Giant Leap Edition’ but was so popular we decided to keep it!
Shortly after followed by Pink Edition in August 2019, then Sustainable Edition in December 2019… along with SIX Limited Edition flavoured charity gins, which only 200 of each bottle were produced.
2019 saw us launch TEN gins in our first 9 months of trading!
We always said we would bring back the most popular flavour of the six Limited Editions… but then… ya’ know – Covid and all that, and we blinked and 2020 just flashed before us!🦠
But finally – our first NEW GIN of 2020 – with a brand new recipe, EVEN BETTER than the previous recipe (if that is possible!) we introduce –
💕PINK GRAPEFRUIT AND PINK PEPPERCORN💕 to our permanent range!
Distilled and vapour infused with fresh pink grapefruit and pink peppercorn, then also post infused with pink grapefruit, in true Stockport Gin fashion this is a refreshing, citrusy, but not overly sweet, flavoured gin, leaving a warm tingle of pink peppercorn on the end of your tongue.

The following is a message from The Samaritans.
In Stockport, someone dies every two weeks from suicide. Three quarters of all suicides are men and many more people in our area are in crisis and need support.
Covid-19 has brought many uncertainties and worries that have impacted on people’s mental health and well-being. Recognised as a critical service, needed more than ever, Samaritans of Stockport and District volunteers have continued to support those who may be experiencing difficulties.
Reaching out to the community to raise awareness is an important part of our work but this has been a challenge as many of our events were cancelled, including a bucket collection at Stockport County FC. Our new online awareness campaign Real People, Real Stories shares real stories from men, including professional footballers and sports personalities, who have been through tough times to encourage other men to seek help.
When life is tough, we’re here to listen. Anyone can contact Samaritans for free any time from any phone on 116 123, even a mobile without credit, or you can email [email protected]
