Young footballers in Bradley Stoke, Gloucestershire, kicked off the new season in style thanks to a sponsorship deal with our Bristol team.
The U7s at Bradley Stoke Youth Football Club, which is just down the road from our Lyde Green development in Emersons Green, received a cash donation of £250.
The club, which is based at the Jubilee Centre on Savages Wood Road, will use the money to purchase brand new sweatshirts with the team’s initials emblazoned on the back.
Team manager Martin Lee says: “It’s always fantastic to get sponsorship from local businesses, and Taylor Wimpey’s donation has done so much in helping our team get brand new sweatshirts.
“For children so young, this will be their first piece of kit that belongs to them. It’s wonderful for them to have something with their club name printed on the back, and it’s something that they can be as proud of as they are of the clubs they support themselves.
“We received funding around 14 years ago from Taylor Wimpey, and they’re sponsoring us again now. We really appreciate the donation, as this is what keeps grass root clubs like us going.”
The U7s team play regular friendly matches every week with other local teams in the area.
Charlie Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bristol, says: “As a local housebuilder we are committed to supporting the communities which we build in, so we were only too pleased to fund some new kit for the Bradley Stoke Youth Football Club U7s.
“I wish the team all the best for the rest of the football season – and I hope their new kit gives them a competitive edge on the pitch.”
There’s currently a selection of four-bedroom properties available at Lyde Green.
