Our East Anglia team has offered a helping hand to Brantham Athletic Football Club in Brantham, Suffolk. The club, which will neighbour the upcoming Stour View development, received a £600 donation which will be used to buy much-needed new equipment.

The history of Brantham Athletic FC dates back to 1887, and the club currently has teams playing in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division as well as in the Essex and Suffolk Border League. Brantham Athletic FC is also an active supporter of children’s grassroots football, with teams for those under 7 right up to under 18’s.

Commenting on the donation, Darren Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Brantham Athletic FC, said: “On behalf of everyone at Brantham Athletic Football Club, I would like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey. This donation will make it possible for us to maintain the high standards of the club and continue to offer our players the chance to play the sport they truly love.”

Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “It’s really important for us to support people and organisations in the local community, especially during these difficult times. Brantham Athletic FC are a much loved local organisation and we wish them the best of luck for the upcoming season.”
