Cobham Football Club celebrates 125 years with donation from McCarthy & Stone

16 August 2017

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement homebuilder, has pledged its support to Cobham Football Club in Surrey with a £500 donation, as the club celebrates its 125th anniversary. 

The donation will be used to help further develop the club’s junior teams and fund more equipment, goals and pitch maintenance over the coming season. 

Established in 1892, Cobham Football Club now plays in the Combined Counties Football League. It runs a variety of boys and girls teams, ranging from ages 7 to 16. Over the last two years, the club has expanded rapidly and after hosting two junior teams, now manages sixteen as part of their junior development programme. 

Mark Cornish, Youth Development Officer at Cobham Football Club, who was visited by McCarthy and Stone’s Customer Relationship Manager, Debbie Wynn, and presented with a cheque for £500, said: “Cobham Football Club encourages local boys and girls from 7 to 16 to enjoy the sport they love. We are proud to have a variety of teams and age groups on-board as we approach the start of another exciting season. 

“We are all thankful to McCarthy and Stone for its generous donation in our anniversary year. In light of the expansion in the number of our junior teams, the contribution will enable us to purchase more equipment, maintain the football pitch and assist with decorating and maintenance. This will be invaluable to a club such as ours.”   

Julie Ward, Regional Sales and Marketing Director McCarthy and Stone South East, 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.  

“We are always looking out for local causes to support and Cobham Football Club stood out for the positive role it plays in the lives of many young people across Surrey. It is an absolute pleasure to present this donation to the club and we wish them every success with their junior development and upcoming seasons.” 

The new Retirement Living development, located on Holly Parade, will consist of luxury one and two bedroom apartments, designed exclusively for the over 60s. Construction will commence in autumn 2017, with apartments available to reserve off-plan in summer 2018. 

Facilities at the Cobham development will include a club lounge, comfortable communal areas ideal for socialising with friends, and landscaped gardens. Should homeowners wish for friends and family to visit, a convenient guest suite is available to ensure they enjoy a pleasant stay. The development will also benefit from a dedicated Concierge, who is on hand to ensure the smooth running of the development, and provide support to homeowners. A range of security and support services are also available, including 24 hour emergency call points which provide peace-of-mind for homeowners and their families. 

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy & Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 12 years’ running.  McCarthy and Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
