Northern Power Grid (was CE Electric UK) – the company that owns and operates the electricity distribution networks in Yorkshire, northern Lincolnshire and the North-east - is proud to support England Athletics through its corporate sponsorship programme. John Barnett, Head of Customer Operations, said: “There’s nothing more important to us than giving something back to the communities that we serve. The England Athletics programme gives young people the chance to keep fit and have fun, whilst offering some of the region’s most promising young athletes the best possible start in their sporting careers.”
