As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the communities in which we build our houses, we have donated £500 towards new kit for Shipston Excelsior FC under 17s, which is based in Warwickshire.
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 have 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, be that through the golf days or with kit sponsorships. With our current under-17s team due to move up to an adult team, it will be great for the incoming team to be able to take full advantage of a brand new kit.”
Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Shipston Excelsior FC 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 and we wish everyone at Shipston Excelsior FC the best of luck for current and future seasons.”
