At PMJ, sport has always been close to the roots of its Directors and Staff. From playing sport at a professional level, Patrick playing with odd shaped balls for Leeds, to others who play for a hobby, Adrian hacking his way around the golf course every week!, we are always of the opinion that sport at grass roots level never has enough investment. Every year we support grass roots sports by investing in our budding future sports stars!
