Ready for kick-off! Redrow supports local team in Leighton Buzzard
Our South Midlands division, which is currently building at Leestone Park on Heath Road, has continued its support for a grassroots football team by donating £960.00 towards the clubs training facilities.
Leighton Town Youth FC supports children as young as five in the local area to be active and enjoy a team building sport in a community environment, offering locals outstanding footballing opportunities.
The sponsorship allows the club to have a professional space to train for both their home and away games.
Suzanne Irons, Sales Director for South Midlands, said:“Grassroots football is an invaluable part of community life, and so we are proud to continue our support for Leighton Town Youth Football Club Under 18s as part of our commitment to creating thriving communities.
“Playing sport is a great way to support physical and mental wellbeing and to bring people together through a love for the game. Grassroots football is more than just a hobby, it’s a space where children can learn a new sport while developing important life skills, from teambuilding to communicating effectively, that will put them in good stead throughout their lives.
“We are committed to creating a positive impact on the area surrounding Leestone Park and the community groups which help make Leighton Buzzard a great place to live.We look forward to coming along and seeing the team in action soon – go team!”
Sean Downey, Director of Football at Leighton Town Football Club, said:“We’re delighted to have Redrow South Midlands continuing their support for our training facilities which allows us to train and practice every week as a squad.
“Our club is focused on developing grassroots football and providing the younger generation in Leighton with opportunities to thrive. We rely heavily on the support of local organisations, so this donation is extremely welcome. The whole team would like to say a big thank you and we look forward to welcoming the Redrow South Midlands team to watch us play soon.”
The sponsorship forms part of our ongoing commitment to promote health and wellbeing in the community.
Leestone Park offers the ideal balance of rural living with great connections to surrounding towns. The centre of Leighton Buzzard is just a mile and a half away from the development, and the handy train station means you can travel to Milton Keynes in less than fifteen minutes. In due course, there are also plans for a community centre to be built on the development, as well as an orchard and plenty of open spaces – making the location perfect for families.
