New Store Supports Tower Hill Under 7's

New Store Supports Tower Hill Under 7's Tower Hill football team has kicked off another season and this year the under 7’s players’ skill will be matched by their style, as they benefit from a brand-new kit of shirts, shorts and socks courtesy of the new Marks & Spencer store at Marriotts Walk development.

Supporting local programmes which promote a healthy lifestyle, such as Tower Hill FC, is key to the Marks & Spencer’s commitment to encouraging healthy living for both employees and customers and is part of the retailer’s Plan A* initiative.

Formed in 1971, Tower Hill is the largest youth football club in the Witney area and aims to provide an enjoyable and structured environment for young people to play football in. The club has teams from Under 7 to Under 16 and has recently won a Fair Play award to complement it’s existing title of Oxfordshire’s Charter Standard Club of the Year.

Chris Taylor, Marks & Spencer Witney Store Manager commented; “We wanted to get more involved with the local community whilst at the same time encouraging healthy and active lifestyles. We are delighted to be supporting such a great organisation which does so much to help local residents participate in sports in an organised, competitive and fun environment.”

Graham Eadle, a coach with Tower Hill’s Under 7’s added: “The club is delighted to have M&S on board. Most importantly, these children won’t have to play in ‘hand me-down’ kit – they couldn’t believe it when they found out that M&S is their new sponsor.”


• *In January 2007 M&S announced Plan A, a five-year, £200 million, 100 point business-wide ‘eco plan’. Under this plan, by 2012 M&S will become carbon neutral; send no waste to landfill; extend sustainable sourcing; set new standards in ethical trading and help customers and employees live a healthier lifestyle
