wTWEM - Ilkeston FC Juniors - Kit Donation

Youngsters at Ilkeston Football Club Juniors in Derbyshire are sporting brand new kits thanks to a sponsorship deal with our team at Taylor Wimpey East Midlands.

We donated £500 to the U12s Reds team at the club to pay for new strip. Ian Mottram, team manager and coach, says: “Taylor Wimpey do a lot of work in the local community so it’s great to have them sponsoring our team.

“The boys are overjoyed – they cannot believe that such a big company want to sponsor them, they are buzzing and it has certainly given them a confidence boost!

“The donation has helped us an awful lot, without it we would have had to raise the money ourselves,” says Ian. “We can’t thank Taylor Wimpey enough, their help is very much appreciated.”

The U12s Reds team at Ilkeston Football Club Juniors train every Friday and play on Sundays in the Derby Junior League.

Mariana Knight, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “As a local housebuilder we are committed to supporting the local communities in which we build our new homes so we were only too happy to sponsor the U12s Reds team at Ilkeston Football Club Juniors.

“We hope the youngsters enjoy training and playing in their brand new strip and wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season!”

We are currently building high-quality new homes at a number of developments across the East Midlands.
