Woking Football Club is delighted to announce PowerTouch Therapy as sponsors.
The massage therapy clinic has been granted a number of sponsorship opportunities at the club in a few different areas, including an advertising hoarding which they are donating in part to White Lodge Centre.
In addition to the advertising hoarding, PowerTouch Therapy will have an advertisement in the matchday programme.
Susan Harrison of PowerTouch Therapy is a fully qualified Advanced Clinical and Sports Massage Therapist based in Woking.

Susan said: “Last year, business was not good! I run a clinical massage therapy business but work was very restricted during lockdown.
“However, I also realised that this would be an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of an established local charity and all the work that they do.
“In fact, in terms of a community initiative, donating the space to White Lodge would hopefully help generate some fundraising income for them but also it might help other families like ours.”
Susan went on to explain why it was so important to her to promote White Lodge Centre as part of this deal.
She said: “My son has cerebral palsy and from the age of 2-5 years he attended the nursery at White Lodge Centre.
“For several years after he went to school, White Lodge still played a role as he attended a variety of clinics at the centre.
“The opportunities he was given at nursery were outstanding. As well as the normal educational curriculum he took part in gymnastics, horse-riding and hydrotherapy in a bid to help his physical skills develop as much as possible.
“We have never forgotten how much they did to help him.”
“There was no hesitation from Woking when I asked if it would be possible to do this. They have fully embraced the idea. I’m so grateful that the strong sense of community from the football club is represented not just in words but also by actions.”
Mike Hey, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at White Lodge, explained what the centre does.
“White Lodge has been changing lives, like Susan’s family, for nearly 60 years.
“We provide vital services and support that enable children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities across Woking and Surrey to lead fulfilling lives.
“As a charity we rely on support from the local community to keep our services running.
“Please visit White Lodge Centre

Woking FC Commercial Director Mick Livesey said: “It was amazing to host the Chamber Of Commerce Networking event on the 30th July and we agreed to donate a sponsorship package for the raffle.
“It is so exciting that Power Touch Therapy won the raffle, they carry out amazing work and really benefit the community.
“I am so proud that football continues to reach out and it is so pleasing to see us helping so many local businesses.
“Our aim is to get to the football league and when we achieve this aim it will have a major positive impact on the entire town, but especially local businesses.”
