Suzanne Irons, sales director for Redrow South Midlands, said: “Grassroots football is an invaluable part of community life, and we are proud to support Towcester Vixens 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 Kingsland Park and the community groups which help make Northampton a great place to live. We look forward to coming along and seeing the team in action soon – go Vixens!”

Rob Barnett, coach at Towcester Vixens, said: “We’re delighted to have Redrow South Midlands sponsoring our U13s team kit. Our club is focused on developing grassroots football and providing the younger generation in Towcester 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 Redrow’s ongoing commitment to promote health and wellbeing in the community.
