Bloor Homes gets Penkridge Cricket Club across the line with £1500 donation

Penkridge Cricket Club has scored with a £1500 donation from local housebuilder Bloor Homes – with the money going towards the junior training team kits.

The housebuilder has also been given an advertising board at the side of the pitch, which is less than a ten-minute drive from the Bloor Homes at Penkridge development off Stafford Road. The company has also purchased another local piece of land, with more houses set to go on sale in the future.


Paul Degg, Managing Director for Bloor Homes’ Midlands region, said: “While we have now sold all the homes at our Bloor Homes at Penkridge development, we have a long-standing relationship with the local community and – when the cricket club reached out for support – we very much felt we wanted to help them.


“Encouraging young people into playing local sports is something we want to encourage, which is why we decided to sponsor the junior training tops. We hope that they feel confident and inspired in their new kits, and that it brings them much luck with their upcoming games.”


Jon Price, Honorary Chairman of Penkridge Cricket Club, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Bloor Homes for its generous donation. Thanks to them, around 100 youngsters will be kitted out in smart new training gear, which relieves costs for both the club and parents.”
