Taylor Wimpey teams up with Alloa Athletic FC

Date: Wednesday 22 February 2012

To mark the official opening of Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s development of new homes to Alloa, the builder has teamed up with Alloa Athletic Football club to sponsor a youth and community football programme currently offered by the Club.

Known as ‘Taylor Wimpey Time’ – children aged from 4 – 15 years are encouraged to come along to the Club between 6pm-7pm each week night (Monday-Thursday) for the chance to play football and receive coaching at the Club’s ground at a substantially reduced charge.

This initiative kickstarts a number of ideas being progressed with Alloa Athletic FC and Taylor Wimpey as Karen Armstrong, sales and marketing director explains: “Taylor Wimpey East Scotland is delighted to mark the opening of its new development of family homes at Ochil Gardens in Alloa through our sponsorship of this youth and community project at Alloa Athletic FC.

“Taylor Wimpey is keen to become fully involved in the local community during the construction of our development of 49 new homes, and this initiative is a great and fun way to do that whilst encouraging an active participation in a healthy lifestyle. We’re keen to play an active role in everyday life in Alloa, and we hope to announce further links with the Club at a later date.”

Commenting on the Club’s new association with Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, Alloa Athletic FC Chairman Mike Mulraney said: “Alloa Athletic FC sits at the heart of the local community, and we’re delighted to receive support from Taylor Wimpey to sponsor our youth and community football programme that’s offering around 10 subsidised hours of football for the kids of Alloa – giving them the chance to play right here at the Club. We’re looking forward to working with Taylor Wimpey as their development at Ochil Gardens progresses.”

Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s Ochil Gardens in Alloa is open from Thursday to Monday from 10.00am until 5.30pm. For further information visit www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/ochilgardens or call 0845 671 3172.
