WEB Taylor Wimpey North East has sponsored the Novocastrians RFC in Benton

Our North East business unit is thrilled to announce that it will be the sponsor of the U13s team at Novocastrians RFC, in Benton, for the 2016/17 season.

The club, which is based just a short distance from our upcoming Whitfield Green development, has received a £950 donation to provide brand new kits for all the players.

Steve Neill, Head Coach of the U3s team, says: “We would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation. Running an amateur club can be expensive, so all donations are gratefully received.”

The Latin term Novocastrian means those who are born in Newcastle, and the club was formed in September 1899 by a group of former pupils of the Royal Grammar School. The club has since opened to all members of the public, with now more than 400 playing members from U5s through to first XV and Ladies XVs.

Karl Morton, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North East, adds: “The club provides a great opportunity for locals to get active, and make some friends in the process, so we wanted to help in any way that we could.

“We hope that the players enjoy their news kits and wish them the very best for the upcoming season.”

Steve concludes: “We hope that the new kits bring us luck, and hope to see Whitfield Green residents cheering us on from the side lines, or maybe even joining in.”

Our Whitfield Green development will offer a stylish range of two to five-bedroom homes.
