We’re delighted to announce that we have given the Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race a £500 cash boost, for the second consecutive year.
The donation will enable the organisers to up the prize fund by an additional 25%, and to have potentially life-saving paramedics on site on the day, as well as motorbike marshals to help with safety.
Andy Wood, of the Weaver Valley Cycling Club which organises the race, comments: “The race grows in popularity year-on-year and it’s all thanks to funding from companies like Taylor Wimpey.
“This is the second year we have partnered with them on the race and every year it’s an incredible help. We do again have a fantastic line-up of riders, which include household names and Olympic gold medallists, Joanna Rowsell, Elinor Barker, Laura Trott and Dame Sarah Storey participating, so it’s set to be another fantastic event.”
The Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race has been running for over 20 years, with 80 cyclists from all over the UK set to compete in the competition this year. It is a prestigious race which is part of the British Cycling’s national calendar, with previous winners including Lizzie Armitstead and Nicole Cooke.
Chloe Dunn, Associate Sales Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “This is our second year supporting the Cheshire Classic and we are thrilled to be on board once again.
“The race runs close to our Winnington Village development, so no doubt a number of our residents will be out in force to cheer on the ladies who are taking part.”
Andy concludes: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey for their continued support. Their generous donation really has gone a long way.”
The Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race will take place on Sunday 26th April 2015 in Northwich.
Winnington Village currently features a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
