South Midlands team announces sponsorship of Banbury RUFC

19 October 2023

Our South Midlands team has announced their sponsorship of a Banbury-based rugby team, close to their upcoming development at Wykham Park Farm.

The team has supported Banbury RUFC with a £2,000 sponsorship  – raising our profile in the area as we develop our 1,000-home community in the town in partnership with L&Q Estates.

Established in 1925, Banbury RUFC has a range of teams – from adult men’s and women’s, to under 5s – with the goal of making rugby more inclusive for those who want to take part. The club also offers a variety of community programmes; from its mentoring scheme, to walking rugby, to working with the nearby Frank Wise School.

Matt Goode, Head of Community and Director of Rugby Activities at Banbury RUFC said: “It’s great to have the support of the Persimmon team and we’re so pleased to have them as a sponsor for the 2023 – 2024 season. The teams are going from strength to strength, so this is a really exciting time to be involved with the club - and to know we have the backing of local businesses located close to our club is a huge boost to us.”

Russell Griffin, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “We’re proud to be sponsoring Banbury RUFC as we expand our presence in Banbury. What we do is about so much more than just building high quality homes, it’s also about supporting the communities in and around our developments in the ways that have the most impact.

“Sport is one of the key ways in which community spirit can be fostered, so it’s a delight to be able to show our support to Banbury RUFC.”
