Two junior teams at Woburn and Wavendon Football Club have netted sponsorship from a housebuilder providing new homes in Wavendon.
The U9 Whirlwinds team has been given a donation of £500 towards club kit by Bellway Northern Homes Counties, which is currently building 168 new homes at Wavendon Chase off Newport Road.
Meanwhile, the U8 Lionesses have been given a matching £500 contribution.
Woburn and Wavendon Football Club is one of the area’s largest and oldest grassroot clubs and provides training and hosts games for nearly 50 teams, ranging from five-year-olds to adults.
The club’s teams play matches across nine different venues in the south and east of Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire.
The kit donations provided by the developer will be sported by the two teams in all future games this season and next.
Chairman of Woburn and Wavendon Football Club, Robert Hill, said: “We’d like to thank Bellway for their generous contributions, which have been a huge help towards funding for our new kits. As a club run entirely by volunteers, we rely on support from local businesses.
“We’re really looking forward to training and playing competitively again, and our Whirlwind and Lioness teams are very excited to kick off the new season in their brand-new kits. As an FA Charter Standard Community Club, we value this opportunity to work closely with Bellway and help integrate new Wavendon residents into our friendly community.”
Bellway Northern Home Counties Sales Director, Luke Southgate, said: “We’re very pleased to be supporting such a wonderful club, and we hope our donation will help to put smiles on the faces of those who have been keen to start training for the new season.”
