Local football team receives sponsorship from housebuilder

Holmes Chapel Hurricanes under 12’s football team has received a donation of £750 from Bloor Homes North West.

The developer, which is building the Bluebell Green development off London Road in Holmes Chapel, provided the donation to help the club purchase new mid-layer jumpers for its under 12’s team.

Simon Lincoln, Manager of the Holmes Chapel Hurricanes FC under 12’s team, said: “We are hugely grateful to Bloor Homes for their very kind donation which has helped us buy new jumpers for our team.

“One of the largest expenses that a team faces each year is the hire of appropriate match day and mid-week training pitch facilities. Along with the high costs of match kit, training kits, coats, tracksuits and more.

“Sponsorship from local companies really does benefit grassroots football, as the club is a non-for-profit organisation relying purely on good-will sponsorships like Bloor Homes’ kind sponsorship.”

Holmes Chapel Hurricanes are an FA Charter Standard youth football club, which was founded in 2000. It currently operates 24 age group teams from the ages of eight to open age, with over 300 subscribed players.

The teams compete in the Mid Cheshire Youth League, in various local cup competitions and youth football festivals throughout the year.

James Clark, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes North West, said: “We are very proud to be supporting Holmes Chapel Hurricanes FC. As a responsible housebuilder, we are committed to working with the communities where we develop.

“When we found out about the team’s need for new football jumpers, we were keen to help out as participating in sport has such a positive influence on young people. We wish Holmes Chapel Hurricanes FC the best of luck for their matches in the upcoming season.”

Bluebell Green is a beautiful collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes near the small town of Holmes Chapel.

The development offers the best of both worlds. It is an easy commute to the M6 motorway, as well as being close to a selection of excellent schools and good local amenities, making it a perfect place to raise a family.
