Our Midlands team have donated £500 towards Shipston Excelsior FC’s annual golf day for the third year running. Designed to promote grassroots football, the event raised £10,500, with £1,500 of the total being donated to Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
Established over 115 years ago in Shipston-on-Stour, Shipston Excelsior FC is home to teams of a number of ages, from juniors that begin at the age of six up to adults. In order to support the club the teams often host fundraising golf days, which we’ve supported with £500 annually for the last three years since building work began on their two local sites, Herdwick Gate and Herdwick Fold.
Jonny Edwards, Chairman at Shipston Excelsior FC, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey and we can’t thank them enough for their ongoing support to the club. With the help of sponsorships such as this one, we’ve managed to raise a staggering £10,500. As we raised so much, the team at Shipston Excelsior FC decided to donate £1,500 of this to Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, a charity close to the team’s heart.”
Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said: “We are delighted to again be able to sponsor Shipston Excelsior FC’s golf day with a £500 donation. The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes - being able to work with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us.”
