School tackles fitness thanks to Taylor Wimpey
A primary school in Middleton has received financial support from homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey Manchester, to fund essential sports and fitness equipment.
Hollin Primary School, which is just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s East Hollinsfield development, has received a £300 donation, which will be used to fund new rugby kits and running vests for its pupils.
David Fenton, headteacher at Hollin Primary School, comments: “On behalf of all the students and staff, we would like to extend a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for their generous donation.
“Sports and fitness play an integral part of the curriculum at our school and in children’s health and well-being. We want every child to find a sport or activity that they can enjoy throughout their life.
“Looking their very best in the new rugby kits, we hope all of our students will be encouraged to take part in more sporting activities.”
The school, located just off Waverley Road, is part of Middleton Primary School’s Sports Association, which provides competitions for pupils in Year 1 to 6 and free sports and activities for disadvantaged children.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “Being active is so and if we can encourage children to form these habits now, they’ll stick to them for life.
“We hope this donation will make a huge difference to the pupils and really encourage them to take part in more sport.
“Our East Hollinsfield development launches later this year, so it’s lovely to be able to support a local school that is a vital part of the community.”
Taylor Wimpey’s East Hollinsfield development will offer a collection of three- and four-bedroom properties, in a range of styles such as mews, detached and semi-detached, in the heart of Middleton.
With excellent commuter links to Manchester and Rochdale, as well as a range of amenities within easy reach, it’s the perfect place for families of any size.
