Taylor Wimpey Manchester is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the Junior Ribblesdale Classic 2024 with a generous contribution of £1,000. The qualifying sessions, which took place on Saturday 27th April and Friday 10th May, showcased talent and sportsmanship among junior Crown Green Bowls enthusiasts.

The Junior Ribblesdale Classic Finals Day 2024 then took place on Sunday 26th May and saw eight talented qualifiers return to the Ribblesdale Wanderers Cricket and Bowling Club, less than a mile away from Taylor Wimpey’s Half Penny Meadows development in Clitheroe. The finals day saw the final eight junior players and final 16 players in The Ribblesdale Classic take part and attracted hundreds of spectators as well as thousands joining us via our live broadcast on Blue Border Sports on YouTube.

Taylor Wimpey’s £1000 donation will go towards the prize money given to the juniors. Players come from all over the UK and the prize money allows them to use it to purchase new bowls and equipment that they need to play the sport.

As one of the largest house builders in the country, their backing has greatly contributed to the success of the new junior event. Talented participants from across the UK competed, with 10-year-old Sebastian Mordue from Bradford winning the title, trophy, and £300. Thanks to Taylor Wimpey and the sales team for their fantastic support.”
