Taylor Wimpey aims to create future Olympians after £1,000 donation to Alexander Stadium event
Residents at Taylor Wimpey’s Fore Meadows development in Great Barr are looking forward to a weekend of athletic excitement after winning tickets to the European Champion Clubs Cub (ECCC) event at nearby Alexander Stadium, the host venue for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Track and field athletes from across Europe will compete in the ECCC on 26th and 27th of May. They will take on the senior male team from Birchfield Harriers, the club based at Alexander Stadium and host of the championships.
Taylor Wimpey North Midlands was keen to show its support for the club and decided to donate £1,000 in sponsorship. As a thank you, the club offered a number of ECCC tickets to Fore Meadows residents. A competition was held at the development, and the lucky winners are now looking forward to being part of the crowd for the ECCC.
Cath Muth, Commercial Manager and Coach for Birchfield Harriers, said: “We’re extremely proud to be hosting the ECCC this weekend. It’s a massive occasion for the club and the support of local companies like Taylor Wimpey North Midlands is vital to ensuring that the event runs smoothly.
“Although we train elite athletes, a big part of our mission is to work with the local community and encourage more people to take up sport and lead more active lifestyles. We’re really looking forward to welcoming Fore Meadows residents to Alexander Stadium for the ECCC, and we hope to see a few new youngsters at our Academy training sessions in the near future.”
Carl Cooke, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Midlands, said: “Alexander Stadium is a huge local landmark in the Great Barr area. It was an easy decision to support Birchfield Harriers as they host the ECCC, but the most important thing for us is that our residents at Fore Meadows are now aware that this fantastic club operates on their doorstep. We hope the lucky ticket winners enjoy the championships.”
Carl Cooke, Regional Sales and
Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’ve already received a great response to these new showhomes, so
anyone who is interested in viewing them is encouraged to visit the development
as soon as possible.
“Our showhomes offer the perfect
opportunity to see how a fully decorated and furnished home could look at Fore
Meadows, giving viewers a really good insight into the lifestyle they could
enjoy here and gain some inspiration and new ideas as well!”
