Ziz York, project co-ordinator at Teams4U, comments: “The response we have had from the Taylor Wimpey partnership has been amazing and we’re extremely grateful that the team opened their developments as drop off points for us.

Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “This is the first year that we have been a part of the Christmas Shoe Box Appeal and the response has been fantastic, so we’re already considering it again for next year. As soon as we announced that we were participating in the initiative this year, many of our customers as well as members of the Taylor Wimpey team quickly jumped at the chance to put forward boxes.”
Taylor Wimpey’s participating developments included, Booth Hall in Blackley, Kings Grange in Audenshaw, Pennine Gate in Rochdale, Spinning Green in Bolton, The Heath at Hampton Wood in Hazel Grove, Winnington Village in Northwich, Bramley Wood in Sandbach, Ribble Meadows in Clitheroe, Dale Moor View in Rossendale, Oakwood Meadows in Shevington, and Pennington Wharf in Leigh.

Taylor Wimpey Manchester is thrilled to announce that it will be supporting Teams4U’s Christmas Shoe Box Appeal for 2015, by encouraging families in Cheshire to donate necessities to families in Eastern Europe this festive season.
Bramley Wood development will act as shoe box drop-off points between the 16th and 30th November this year - to enable families in the region to give something back to those less fortunate in time for Christmas.
Ziz York, project co-ordinator at Teams4U, comments: “It’s amazing to have the support from a company as renowned as Taylor Wimpey, so we cannot thank the team enough. We’re asking people to donate necessities such as toothbrushes, soap, hats and scarves, as well as a few nice-to-haves that many of us take for granted such as sweets, games, and toys. In addition to the children’s boxes, we have our ‘Mama Boxes’ – for these we’re asking for home essentials such as small saucepans, plastic utensils, cups and bowls.”
This year is the Christmas Shoe Box Appeal’s 25th anniversary, so Teams4U is set to provide 25,000 boxes to vulnerable families across Eastern Europe. The charity is also asking people to make a small donation of £2 per box they submit, which will cover the cost of transportation.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “The Christmas Shoe Box Appeal is an incredible initiative and one we’re only too happy to be supporting. Our Cheshire-based development will be open for drop-offs for the last two weeks of November, and we’re anticipating lots of locals to offer their support for this amazing and worthwhile cause.”
Taylor Wimpey’s Bramley Wood development is based on Congleton Road in Sandbach and is open Thursday to Monday, between 11am and 5pm.
Ziz concludes: “We would like to thank the team at Taylor Wimpey for this support, it truly is much appreciated. We’re confident that with this help, we will achieve our ambitious target to supply 25,000 boxes this year.”
