Our regional business Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire is proud to announce it has donated £500 to Hall Green United Football Club in Wakefield.
The donation will contribute towards day-to-day running costs at the largest amateur club in the region, including buying new equipment for the upcoming season.
Marcus Pound, development officer at Hall Green United Football Club, says: “Financially, running the club is becoming progressively more difficult each year. The costs associated with regular training sessions, equipment and matches can be expensive, so the donation means a great deal.
“We’re extremely grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their support. The donation will contribute to the sustainability of the club going forward, giving our teams the push to work hard and play hard.”
Hall Green United Football Club – located near to our Pipers Green development – was first established in 1969 and is devoted to developing home-grown talent. It now has three senior teams, with 60 players in total, and a junior division which runs teams from U6s right through to U16s.
Anne Bagshaw, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, comments: “Helping to sustain local sports clubs that are located near to where we are building our developments is something that we are very proud of.
“Hall Green United Football Club is clearly at the heart of the community, with football-lovers of all ages able to take part, and it is our pleasure to contribute towards keeping the club running and maintaining its success.”
Marcus concludes: “On behalf of Hall Green United Football Club, I’d like to say a massive thank you to Taylor Wimpey for their extremely kind donation.
“A large company like Taylor Wimpey helping a small club at grass roots level is an absolute credit to the company. We are thrilled to have such strong support.”
Pipers Green currently offers a choice of three, four and five-bedroom properties.
