Acorn video marks Newport’s historic day out at Wembley
Leading UK multi-regional recruitment and training company Acorn Group has marked an historic day out at Wembley for its local football club with a special video of the event.
Wales-based Acorn Group, which has its headquarters in Newport and has been the shirt sponsor for Newport County AFC for the last 13 years, took 200 staff, their families and friends to Wembley for this year’s FA Carlsberg Trophy Final.
It was the club’s first ever visit to Wembley and Acorn founder and lifelong Newport County fan, Matt Southall, wanted to ensure as many of his 280 UK-wide staff as possible had the chance to enjoy the occasion with him.
Acorn financed a fleet of coaches to transport the staff, families and friends to London from Newport, paid for their match tickets and supplied refreshments for the day. Acorn also paid for staff from branches in the South West, North West and South East of England to go to the game.
The result might not have gone their way (York City lifted the trophy following a 2-0 win), but Acorn ensured the day out will be remembered with the production of a video that charts the trip to Wembley for their staff.
Matt said: “It was a day I shall, personally, never forget, and I was thrilled so many of our Acorn team were there to share it and enjoy what was not only a momentous day for Newport County but a special one for Acorn, too.”
