Westcotts lends support to King’s College Taunton Equestrian Team

At Westcotts, supporting the communities in which we work and live is integral to our values. That is why we have sponsored the King’s College Taunton Equestrian Team, providing them with the resources needed to ride, train and compete in comfort and style!

King’s College Taunton is an independent day and boarding school for those aged 2-18. Their mission is to inspire every child to believe in their potential and empower them with confidence to strive for their greatest ambitions. The school is a valued educator and employer in the local community, with students and staff often giving back through volunteering.

Their equestrian team, comprised of over forty pupils and headed by Victoria Selway, is offered to pupils of all ages, from complete beginners to experienced riders. The team compete regularly in national competitions and recently qualified for Royal Windsor for the third year running, an amazing achievement given there are only twenty places available within the whole country!

We have a long history of links with the school with Partner Sheldon Cole sitting on the Alumni Association Committee. Across our 16 offices, our teams also serve a number of agricultural and equestrian based businesses.

This sponsorship marks the latest in a host of support given to organisations local to our network of 16 offices, including Plymouth Argyle and Devon Classic Motorcycle Club. Last year, we also sponsored the schools Summer Term prize giving awards at King’s College Prep and King’s College. At both schools the Westcotts prize was awarded for attitude to learning.

Sheldon Cole, Partner at Westcotts said: “I’m so pleased that Westcotts have supported those pupils who are part of the equestrian team to ride, train and compete. King’s College Taunton is a vital part of the Taunton community and we hope to continue this relationship in future years.”
