Cruden Homes are on the ball with school football team donation

Posted: 2nd December 2019

Niddrie Mill’s Primary 6 and 7 children’s football team were delighted to receive a donation of £500 from housebuilder, Cruden Homes, as part of their commitment to investing in the local community.

The primary school, which is close to the Cruden Homes’ Vision development in the Craigmillar area of Edinburgh, will see many of the new young residents as pupils.

Jamie Lyall, Primary 7 teacher at the school, contacted Cruden Homes to ask if they could help with strips for the new school football team. Jamie explained: “The Vision development is next to our school and the kids are excited at the possibility of new friends and families that will be moving in to the area. We wanted to start a football team at the school and wondered if Cruden Homes could help. The kit helps the children take pride in our school team and gives them a confidence boost too. The donation from Cruden has made it possible and the team could not be happier with their new strips!”

Hazel Davies, Sales and Marketing Director at Cruden Homes said: “The new homes at our Vision development will help to create a new community within the area, so it’s great to be able to play our part in that and sponsor the local primary school team.  The new kit will hopefully spur them on to score many goals and we’ll be cheering them on.”

As with all Cruden Group developments, local communities are supported throughout the build by providing a wide range of benefits including supporting local school initiatives.
