Dean Rogers, Managing Director at Frank Rogers commented:

“It’s always a real coup to be awarded contracts that are quite literally on our doorstep and are set to enhance and utilise local resources. Frank Rogers has retained its offices in Anfield since launching over four decades ago and is committed to helping improve the area.

“Many members of our team live locally, several of whom have been involved in this scheme. It’s incredibly positive for them and the business to be able to help make a change within their own community through work such as this. We recognise the high standards set by the club and the charity and have delivered in line with their expectations and objectives.”
