Stoke City Players pay a visit to Twyford Bathrooms
Published: 18 November, 2010
ALSAGER: Players from England Premiership League team Stoke City paid a visit to the newly- revamped headquarters of Twyford Bathrooms. The company has been a long-time supporter of the local team, which is in the top level for football across the globe.
The players’ visit was in recognition of Twyford Bathrooms’ ongoing support of the club, most recently by supplying sanitaryware for the new modern centre at Clayton Wood.
The training ground is an important development in the life of Stoke City, as it represents a commitment to the future of the sport for the local community, as well as drawing in new talent.
Twyford's products included the water-saving Flushwise WC suites, Aquations 'low flo' taps and Avalon rimless Doc M packs.
At Twyford Bathrooms, the ‘Potters’ players met with keen members of staff, and presented a football and shirt signed by the whole team.
Twyford Bathrooms will raffle these prestigious items off to raise funds for the Donna Louise Trust, a local charity that offers palliative care for young children in Staffordshire and South Cheshire.
Mike Conlon, managing director Twyford Bathrooms, said: “We have seen a real team effort to support our premier team in their journey to become 'world class', with staff contributions every step along the way – just like in the team’s famous anthem!
"As a local business, we are all extremely proud of the support that we can offer Stoke City. There has long been an international element to what Twyford offers, and now it is coming home with the Clayton Wood training ground drawing international talent back into Stoke," Mr Conlon said.
"We wanted to create a training centre that takes us to the next level in terms of facilities and best represents the standards we are trying to achieve throughout the club," said Richard Smith, managing director of Stoke City Property.
“The challenge has been to develop a centre that looks impressive, but serves its purpose as a working environment seven-days-a-week and we feel we have managed to achieve those objectives in terms of what we have created.
"We value the support of Twyford Bathrooms, who share our commitment to the local community, and to world class standards.”
