Junior teams at Yatton FC are looking great on the pitch thanks to a donation from the builders of a new residential development in the village.
West of England housing association and housebuilder Curo donated £3,750 to the club as part of their commitment to working together with local communities and supporting residents in areas where they are building new homes.
In total, 126 children with ages ranging from under-9s to under-14s have benefitted from brand-new Nike football kits, including shirts, socks and shorts. Curo’s sponsorship also enabled the club management to purchase folding bench shelters to keep the junior footballers dry and comfortable during matches played at home and away.
James Bellis, Yatton Junior FC Chairman, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive this generous donation from Curo and we’re grateful for their support. It means a lot for our talented young players to have their own team kit and it’s great to see them looking so smart and confident on the pitch.”
Curo are building 154 new homes for sale and rent at Eaton Park in Yatton, where the first few properties will be ready to receive their new residents in May 2021. Sales Manager Jodie Winter says: “It’s really important to us at Curo to support the communities we work in. As a developer and a housing association, we remain a part of the community long after we have built and sold the last property, as we continue to manage the affordable homes on site.
“We’re pleased that we were able to support Yatton Junior FC with the purchase of new equipment and we think the young players are looking very professional in their Curo-branded shirts!”
