Bessingby Park Rangers, a community-led youth football club in Harrow affiliated with Middlesex Football Association, has received a donation of £1000 from Barratt London, the housebuilder behind the new Eastman Village development on Harrow View.
The donation, gifted through Barratt London’s Community Fund initiative, has been used to supply a brand-new kit for the Under 15’s team.
Bessingby Park Rangers, founded in 1973 as part of a local Scouting group, now have 17 teams amounting to over 200 players – varying from the Under 5’s to an adult women’s team. As a result, the club (and its clubhouse) has become a staple part of the community for countless residents in the Harrow area.
Barratt London’s Community Fund sees the housebuilder donate £1,000 per month to a local registered charity or organisation working to improve the quality of life for those living in the local area. The recent donation to Bessingby Park Rangers has provided the Under 15’s team with specialist Nike kit.
Ed McCoy, Sales and Marketing Director for Barratt West London, comments: “At Barratt London, we are always eager to support active hubs within the local communities surrounding our developments.
“Bessingby Park Rangers are a prime example of a sporting club that works to build a community that is not only supportive, but exciting too! We are pleased to have the opportunity to contribute toward the club and we hope that the new kits serve the team well.”
Coaches Kev, Pat, Matt, Michael and Stephen of the Bessingby Park Rangers U15’s, commented: “We would like to thank Barratt London for sponsoring the kit for our U15’s team. Being part of a sporting team is a great way to stay active whilst becoming a part of a wider social community, and this is all the better when you have a professional team kit to be proud of.
“The team have really enjoyed looking smart during training and matches this season and we think it has even contributed to the amazing season we have had.”
