Louise Donnelly, administrator at Leeds-based Reward Capital, talks about her passion for the sporting life.
Having a football and cricket fanatic dad, as well as two brothers, I nurtured my passion from a young age. In the park it was two minutes on the swings and 22 minutes kicking a football and taking guard with a cricket bat.
In the late 1990s, girls’ football in Harrogate, where I grew up, was in its infancy. It was often difficult getting 11 players but our enthusiasm always shone through. Both football and cricket have taken me to grounds and pitches throughout the north of England.
During a gap year in Australia, I ran football training sessions and matches in a school for children of different ages. I also joined a local ladies team, Coolum Football Club, that played in the premier division on the Sunshine Coast. It was much the same as the English game, but with much warmer and dryer weather conditions.
As a left footed player, I play on the left side of midfield and score the occasional goal. In cricket, I am a right arm spin bowler, and I often get into double figures with the bat.
ANDY BOND the former chief executive of Asda, is joining forces with a number of experienced retailers to launch a discount fashion chain.
Mr Bond, who spent 16 years at Leeds-based Asda, is one of the senior figures behind the new children’s and ladieswear group.
The new chain will represent the first British investment by Pepkor UK, a vehicle backed by Mr Bond and Pepkor chairman Christo Wiese, the South African billionaire. Based in Cape Town, Pepkor is a South African investment company with retail interests in Africa, Australia and Eastern Europe.
In a statement, Pepkor said: “Pepkor UK can confirm today’s media speculation that it intends to launch a new chain of UK challenger fashion stores that will give shoppers on a budget remarkable value.
“The stores will start at scale and adapt at pace, with the launch expected in the summer of 2015, focused on autumn and winter ranges.
“Pepkor UK was established to manage corporate activity in the UK and support the Pepkor group in making strategic acquisitions and investments in growing segments of the UK retail market.”
Mr Wiese also backs Reward, the Leeds-based finance lender, which is stepping in to take advantage of the banking sector’s reluctance to lend.
