Our North East team is delighted to announce a partnership with Alnwick Town AFC, in Alnwick.
We’ve pledged £100 per month to the club throughout the duration of the build at our nearby Willowburn Park development. This will support both the Junior and Senior teams with the purchase of essential items for the youth club, and provide central support of the club’s facilities.
Cyril Cox, secretary and vice chairman of development at Alnwick Town FC, comments: “We are very excited to be welcoming Taylor Wimpey as our new partner and grateful to the homebuilder for its generosity. The money will make a huge difference to the club and its supporters.”
Alnwick Town FC was founded in 1879 and is the most northerly club competing in England in the FA National League System with 25-plus Senior players, and 250 Junior girls and boys. His Grace the Duke of Northumberland is currently president of the club, with Her Grace the Duchess of Northumberland serving as vice president of the Junior team.
Karl Morton, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North East, comments: “With Willowburn Park being very close to Alnwick Town FC, we understand the importance of supporting the communities we build in.
“Local sports clubs provide a great way for youngsters to get fit, and meet some friends at the same time, so it’s a fantastic cause that we’re more than happy to support.”
Cyril concludes: “Alnwick Town AFC plays a vital part in the local community, so its lovely to see a company like Taylor Wimpey getting involved and offering its support. We look forward to seeing many residents from Willowburn Park cheering us on from the side-lines very soon.”
Our Willowburn Park development currently offers a range of three and four-bedroom homes.
