LOCAL SOCCER ACADEMY SCORES TAYLOR WIMPEY SPONSORSHIP - APRIL 2019
The North Yorkshire Soccer Academy made a big impression at an international football tournament in Barcelona thanks to new sponsor, Taylor Wimpey.
The housebuilder pledged £500 towards professional kits for the U13s team to wear in fixtures against teams from Ireland, Sweden and Denmark.
Richard Darcy, head coach at North Yorkshire Soccer Academy, comments: “The squad had a wonderful experience at The Barcelona Cup and competed well against tough opposition who were mainly one year older.
“I was delighted with the way that the boys handled themselves on the tour and the kits made sure that they looked smart representing our club. We would like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for their donation.”
Steven Ball, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, comments: “The North Yorkshire Soccer Academy provides great opportunities to the next generation of footballing talent and we are only too pleased to be able to help where we can.
"We are committed to, not only building high-quality homes, but also making sure that our developments are sustainable and make a real difference to the people who live in the area.
Steven adds: “It’s great that this sponsorship will help shine a spotlight on the positive work being done by the academy in the area.”
MALTON PRIMARY SCHOOL BUILDS AT BROUGHTON MANOR - FEBRUARY 2019
Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire recently welcomed 26 pupils from Malton Primary School to its Broughton Manor development, in Malton.
The Year One class, who are currently learning about new homes and in particular, building materials, enjoyed an exclusive guided tour of the site and were able to see homes at every stage of the construction process.
Simone Miller, Year One teacher at Malton Primary School, comments: “It’s incredibly important to find innovative ways to stimulate children’s learning – and what better way than to take a trip to where all the action happens. We’re currently learning about what makes a good home, so the visit really helped reinforce everything we have been teaching in the classroom.
“The team at Taylor Wimpey went above and beyond to make sure the kids had a great time looking around the site and dressing up in protective hard hats and vessels was an extra highlight. We can’t thank them enough!”
Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire has a long-standing relationship with Malton Primary School and have worked with them on various initiatives and projects since the site launched in 2013.
Alec Edwards, site manager at Broughton Manor added: “It was an absolute pleasure to have the pupils from Malton Primary School visit for the second year in a row.
“They were a real joy to show round and asked some great questions. We hope they enjoyed it as much as we did!”
