A Hailsham football club has been given a boost in the form of a kit sponsorship by a local housebuilder.
Bellway Kent has sponsored Hailsham Town FC to the tune of £2000, which has paid for a new home and away kit for the first team.
The housebuilder is constructing two to five-bedroom homes at its Pelham Place development to the north of the town.
Mark Harrop, Sales Director for Bellway Kent, said: “When Hailsham Town FC approached us about the possibility of sponsoring their kit, we knew we wanted to help in any way we could.
“Wherever we build our houses, we look for opportunities to support and bolster the local community.
“Hailsham Town, known locally as the Stringers, has played an important part in the history of the town since 1885, so what better organisation for us to get involved with.
“We’re very pleased to have been able to help the club and wish them luck playing in their new kits.”
Stuart Fairway, Secretary for Hailsham Town FC, said: “We’re very grateful to Bellway for their support, and the brand-new kits which will look fantastic out on the pitch.”
