Northwich Rowing Club has invested in a brand-new specialist exercise bike, thanks to a cash boost of £1,050 from our regional business unit in Manchester.
The bike will enable the club’s athletes, including members of the Great British rowing team, to add variety to their land training and stay engaged if they are injured.
Rachel Hooper, captain at Northwich Rowing Club, comments: “The watt bike is a great piece of training and rehab equipment and will be a huge help to many of our team members – but particularly our junior members, who often find the social aspect of training just as important as the physical.
“The vast majority of rowing clubs have watt bikes and thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation, we can now purchase one of our own. We believe this will make a huge difference to all of our athletes.”
Northwich Rowing Club – which is based just a short distance from our Winnington Village development in Northwich – was founded in 1875 and has its own boat house and club room, situated on the banks of the River Weaver, close to the town centre. The club has over 200 members including, junior squads for U18s, as well as all women’s and all men’s squads.
Chloe Dunn, Associate Sales Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “Here at Taylor Wimpey we understand the importance of keeping fit and participating in sports from a young age, and rowing is a fantastic yet enjoyable way to do this.
“Our Sales Executive at Winnington Village, Lisa’s son is actually part of the club – so when we found out they were in need of some new equipment, we jumped at the chance to help out.”
Rachel concludes: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for all of their help! Without the funds we just wouldn’t have been able to afford the bike.”
Winnington Village currently features a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
