Cambridge-based housebuilder Hill is celebrating its tenth year sponsoring Histon Football Club.
One of the top 20 housebuilders in the country, Hill aims to deliver almost 1,000 new homes in the city over the next few years. Hill’s chief executive, Andy Hill, has always had close links with the club after living in Histon for many years, where his two sons played for the Histon youth team. Hill started sponsoring the club back in 2005 and has maintained links since.
“We are passionate about supporting the local community wherever we can because it is what makes this city such a great place to live,” says Andy. “One of our longest-standing partnerships has been with Histon Football Club and we are thrilled to remain their sponsors, ten years on.
“Passionate about the local community”
“My sons and I have always had a lifelong love of sport and have been supporters of the football club for many years, so being able to support them on both a personal and professional level is fantastic.
“There have been many changes at Histon over the years as there are in most clubs but we are delighted that we have been able to maintain our strong links with the club through the highs and lows. With Steve Fallon back at the club where he was so instrumental in their success both on and off the field, we remain confident that the club will once more flourish. “We are extremely proud of all that the club has achieved over the past decade and are looking forward to continuing to build our relationship with them for many more years to come.”
Howard Wilkins, Histon FC’s Club Secretary, comments: “Hill has sponsored Histon FC for the past ten years, which is quite unusual for a club at our level. They have been terrific throughout and this long-lasting commitment highlights their attitude toward supporting the local community.”
