NETBALLERS representing Knutsford Academy can dress the part after netting £1,000 of kit sponsorship from Redrow.
The school successfully applied to the homebuilder’s Knutsford Community Fund, linked to new homes being built less than a mile away at Tabley Park.
Head of PE Nikki Walsh said: “Our students feel very proud to represent their school, particularly when they feel they are in smart, logoed attire. With Redrow’s support we’ve been able to purchase netball dresses, in our school colours, for those who represent school in sporting fixtures within Mid Cheshire and Macclesfield & District.”
Redrow’s voluntary community fund programme is part of its commitment to creating thriving communities and building responsibly, helping support the growth of the neighbourhoods the company operates in.
In Knutsford £10,000 has been shared with good causes, including £1,000 gifted to Knutsford Academy for netball kits.
Redrow area sales manager Amanda Hollins said: “Teaming up with Knutsford Academy is the latest way we’ve lent our support to grassroots sport to help encourage young people to lead an active lifestyle. Along with the benefits of physical activity, sport also helps develop other important life skills including communication and teamwork – plus it’s lots of fun.”
Tabley Park will eventually feature 190 new homes, with everything from two to five bedrooms. It will also include a large area of open space, a football pitch, allotment areas, orchard and children’s play area.
