Our North East team makes 1000 pound donation to Blyth Man Shed in Northumberland

Our North East team is proud to announce its generous £1,000 donation to the Blyth Man Shed, a community organisation located in Northumberland. This contribution is part of our ongoing commitment to engaging with the local community through our community chest initiative, which aims to support causes that are dear to the hearts of local residents.


Helping the community

The Blyth Man Shed is a vital community hub that provides a welcoming and inclusive space for men and women of all ages to come together, socialise, and work on various DIY projects. Since its inception, it has been instrumental in combating social isolation and improving the overall well-being of its members. The shed offers a supportive environment where individuals can share skills, learn new ones, and develop strong social bonds. Their aim is to provide a space which gives individuals sanctuary and escape from the isolation & loneliness which can lead to poor mental health & wellbeing.

Sarah Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: "At Taylor Wimpey North East, we believe that a thriving community is built on the foundations of support, unity, and shared values. The Blyth Man Shed embodies these principles, providing an invaluable resource to our local residents. We are honoured to contribute £1,000 to assist in their meaningful work, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact this donation will have on the lives of the individuals they serve."
