Yet another local business has confirmed that they will remain as sponsors to Milton Keynes Lightning for the 2015-16 season, which gets underway this weekend. LeaP School of Motoring, owned by Milton Keynes-based Carl White, will sponsor the team for a second consecutive season and will again offer a discount for supporters learning to drive.

Founded six years ago, LeaP School of Motoring is a true family business that provides a professional service in a relaxed, friendly manner. After several years working for a nationally-known driving school, Carl felt he could offer a more personalised way to teach and LeaP School of Motoring was born. He provides lessons where the learner is taught at a pace comfortable for them – but where they’re helped to develop their skills.

Supporters of the Lightning can now enjoy driving lessons with LeaP School of Motoring for £22 per hour instead of the full rate of £24 when they present a match ticket for the most recent home game, representing a significant saving over a full course of lessons! The same discount is also available for members of the MK Thunder and MK Storm U18 teams.

Lightning’s Luc Johnson passed his driving test recently after one final lesson with LeaP – just hours before his debut home game last weekend – and now two more young MKL players are about to begin learning to drive with LeaP!

I’m really pleased to be able to offer my support for the Lightning for the second year running,” said Carl “I look forward to working with them providing driving lessons to their players and their fans.

I’m looking forward to watching what looks like a strong team develop over the season and hopefully being able to bring back some silverware to MK!

Lightning’s General Manager, Nick Poole, commented: “It’s great to have Carl and LeaP back on board for another season, and Carl has already provided one of our players with a great service in helping him pass his drivers test! He’s a big hockey fan and a keen supporter and we are delighted and proud to have his support once again.

It is always very pleasing to have strong links within the community and great to see that LeaP feel that being engaged and linked to the hockey-playing community is bringing real benefits to their business“.
