Cygnet Health Care partners with Taunton Town Football Club

We are delighted to announce that Cygnet is the new sponsor of Taunton Town Football Club Stadium for the next two years. Following this partnership, the Peacocks home will now be called The Cygnet Health Care Stadium.

On Friday 5th July, an official cutting of the ribbon ceremony and BBQ to mark the start of the partnership was held at the stadium with the Mayor of Taunton, Francesca Smith, cutting the ribbon. Other guests included representatives and service users from Cygnet Health Care, Cllr Hazel Prior-Sankey, Chair of Somerset West and Taunton (SWT) Council and James Hassett, Chief Executive of SWT Council, amongst other local business owners.

Kevin Sturmey, Chairman and CEO of Taunton Town Football Club said, “I am delighted to be working with Cygnet Health Care in what is going to be a very exciting partnership. As a club, we feel that Cygnet is a perfect sponsor for TTFC, with their understanding of the positive effect that sport has on mental health and wellbeing.”

“This is not just about the stadium naming rights – this is about developing relationships in the wider community and using football to help break down barriers. We are very proud to have built a family friendly club in the centre of Taunton, where everyone feels comfortable supporting their local football team and we will continue to make improvements to the ground to further enhance the match day experience.”

Rowan Marriott, Cygnet’s Head of Resourcing, said, “We’re really proud to be launching our partnership between Cygnet Health Care and Taunton Town FC. A big part of this is about supporting the communities in which our services sit and in doing so, build the strong relationships that make it easier for us to help the people we care for access the local community and become an active part of it.”

“We feel we share the same values and are really excited about this special opportunity and wish Taunton Town FC all the best for the coming season – up the Peacocks!”
