Torbay Country Club members ‘bowled over’ by Renaissance sponsorship

Members of the Torbay Country Bowling Club were literally bowled over with delight this week after securing a new local sponsor.

Renaissance Retirement, a luxury provider of independent retirement apartments in Paignton, has entered into a long term partnership with the club. Renaissance will be supporting the purchase of a number of important items for the club.

Renaissance Retirement is hoping the awareness of sponsoring the regionally and nationally renowned bowling club will help raise the profile of its own development. The company is building 38 luxury apartments on an independent retirement development called Fleur de Lis backing onto Victoria Park in Paignton. A show apartment will be launched in May 2015.

Development Director at Renaissance Retirement, Nick Watkins, said: “We are delighted we can help purchase some invaluable items to help the smooth running and promotion of the club. Buying this trolley is the first in a number of items we will support the club buying going forward.

“I’m sure the relationship will go from strength to strength. Renaissance has always felt it very important to be part of the local community and offer support where it can.”

Nick added: “We are building a very exciting, top-end development in Paignton which has a superb location, high-end specification and design features including mezzanine floors. Judging by the interest so far we are anticipating our apartments will sell well.”

Barry Corps, Secretary of the Torbay Country Bowling Club committee said: “We have a programme of fundraising for vital pieces of equipment and this is the first vital step in reaching our targets. We are confident that this exciting new partnership with Renaissance Retirement will be mutually beneficial.”

Barry added: “It’s fantastic that a local company like Renaissance has come forward and decided to support Torbay Country Bowling Club. We can’t thank them enough and look forward to working with them.”

Building work at Renaissance Retirement’s Fleur de Lis, Victoria Park development was officially launched by the Mayor of Torbay, Gordon Oliver in May and the show apartments are expected to be open and ready for viewing in May 2015.
