THE Featherstone Rovers Foundation, the official charity of Featherstone Rovers, has found a new sponsor in local homebuilder Taylor Wimpey. Taylor Wimpey’s £500 donation will be used for a fundraising event at the Rovers' LD Nutrition Stadium, which will enable the charity to continue using the power of sport to give back to the local community.

The charity delivers projects and activities within Featherstone and five other surrounding areas and in the Wakefield Metropolitan District. Funds raised from the event sponsored by Taylor Wimpey will be used for various activity that enhances community skills for locals to lead fulfilled, healthy and active lifestyles.

Rovers Foundation head of community development Amy Hardman said:

“We are delighted to have this new partnership with Taylor Wimpey. heir huge development in Featherstone will be housing a lot of the local people from the community that we work with and will be attracting new families to the area. With the support from Taylor Wimpey, we can provide more outreach projects in Featherstone.”

The LD Nutrition Stadium is situated close to the homebuilders’ Colliers Court development.

Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, added: “We are always keen to support the people living in the areas in which we build. This charity delivers a range of projects throughout Featherstone and the surrounding areas, so will no doubt also benefit many of the people buying our homes in Colliers Court."

Colliers Court is home to a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes in the heart of Featherstone - close to local amenities and schools, it’s ideal for families and first-time buyers alike.
