McCarthy and Stone, the housebuilder behind the new Retirement Living development on Keeper Close in the centre of town, has given Taunton Deane Bowling Club a welcome boost with an £800 donation towards the club’s community development.
A friendly membership-based club that provides bowling all year round, Taunton Deane Bowling club is made up of 460 members and run almost entirely by volunteers.
With a variety of facilities including indoor and outdoor rinks that house regular local and national competitions, Taunton Deane Bowling Club provides local people with the opportunity to do something they love all year round and make long-lasting friendships.
The club’s Chairman of Directors, Richard Beer, was visited by McCarthy and Stone’s Regional Managing Director, Simon Mantell, and presented with a cheque. The ongoing sponsorship and funds from the retirement housebuilder will help towards Taunton Deane Bowling Club’s day-to-day running costs, signage and other promotional support.
Mark Reeve, Development Officer at Taunton Deane Bowling Club, said: “As a club, we largely rely on volunteers; and sponsorship and financial assistance are hugely important to us to continue with ongoing tournaments and challenges. We are very grateful to McCarthy and Stone for its generous donation. As a club that is over 100 years old, we value our place within the Taunton community and couldn’t be where we are without support from local businesses.”
Simon Mantell, Regional Managing Director at McCarthy and Stone South West, added: “As a company we appreciate that our responsibilities go further than developing quality retirement properties – we also seek to create a positive legacy and make a difference in the communities in which we build.
