South Midlands team gives £1,000 cash boost to Stratford Town Women and Girls Football Club
28 March 2023
A football team based in Stratford-upon-Avon has secured a donation from our South Midlands team to further its growth in 2023.
Stratford Town Women and Girls Football Club received the £1,000 funding boost as part of our Community Champions initiative. The team is rapidly growing, with over 130 girls training and playing regular football across all age groups. The growth of women’s football has seen increased demand for the club, which is volunteer-run.
The club takes part in fundraising activities throughout the year, which have helped to pay for new equipment, kit and training opportunities for the team. The donation will help to launch additional teams in line with the increasing demand, allowing some girls the chance to play league football for the first time.
Charlie Jones, Chairperson at Stratford Town Women and Girls Football Club, said: “We are so grateful to Persimmon Homes and their kind donation of £1,000 via their Community Champions Fund. The support that Persimmon has given us will allow us to build on our success in 2023, offering the teams the chance to further their personal development, teamwork and athletic ability.”
Amanda Rogers, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “What we do is about much more than just building homes, it’s about leaving a lasting positive legacy in the communities that we build in. We’re always delighted to lend a hand to local community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them.”
“It’s great to be able to offer this support to Stratford Town Women and Girls Football Club and we wish them all the best for the future.”
