Homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey Manchester, is commemorating Armistice Day this year, by making a £2,000 donation to Royal British Legions across Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire.
A contribution of £500 was made to the Nantwich-based Royal British Legion divisions with a further £1,500 being donated across the region, to support the 2018 Poppy Appeal in the run up to the remembrance period.
Alan Whitmore, community fundraising manager North West, for the Royal British Legion, comments: “This year marks the centenary of WWI, which serves as a timely reminder to reflect and be thankful for all the things this generation has sacrificed for us.
“We’re very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation, as it will make a huge difference to those that we support, including current members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force as well as veterans and families of fallen soldiers.”
The year’s Poppy Appeal involves several art installations across the UK, with one in Preston at Deepdale Stadium and Remembrance Day parades being held nationally on 11th November.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “It’s so important for us to support the communities that we build in and being able to give back to such a great cause, especially at this poignant time of year, is a wonderful thing.
“Being involved with the Royal British Legions during their period of remembrance has really encouraged us, and those who live at our developments, to reflect on the sacrifices that were made whether that’s during recent conflicts or the first and second world war and be thankful for those who laid down their lives.
“All the fallen soldiers will be in our hearts and minds during this period of remembrance and we hope this donation will go a small way to helping those affected.”
Sandbach RUFC has scored a £500 donation from Taylor Wimpey Manchester, which will be used towards additional pitch side fencing on their multiple pitches.
The club, which was formed in 1936, consists of four divisions, including senior, junior and girl’s, with the first team playing in the semi-professional Midlands Premier League.
Phil Bell, chairman of Sandbach RUFC, comments: “Our teams have worked really hard to compete in this league, training up to three times a week. We’re currently sixth after winning 14 games and we have one more away game left this season. This generous donation from Taylor Wimpey will make a big difference to all our age groups.
“I know both of the developments in the areas fairly well and often walk past Bramley Wood on the way to pick my grandchildren up from school.
“It’s great to see as company such a Taylor Wimpey giving back to the communities it builds and we’d just like to say thank you!”
Both Bramley Wood and Albion Lock have a range of homes still available to purchase with financial schemes, such as Help to Buy and EasyMover, available at both developments.
Chloe Dunn, Sales and Marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “Having two developments in Sandbach we know what a strong community it is and were keen to get involved with local initiatives from the offset.
“Team sports, such as rugby are a great way to keep people healthy and active, while instilling discipline and the importance of team work. We’re always more than happy to help such wonderful causes and wish the club all the best with the rest of the season.
Bramley Wood has donated £350 towards the Sandbach United Falcons for them to secure new training kits.
The under 12s team, which trains every Tuesday and play on a Sunday, competes in the Mid Cheshire Youth League.
Rich Greenwood, manager of the under 12 Falcons, comments: “We’re very thankful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation.
“We try to teach our players important life lessons such as hard work, dedication and teamwork. Having brand-new, matching kits definitely helps to reinforce the latter.
“The team look great in their kits!”
Sandbach United FC train just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey Manchester’s Bramley Wood development. Julia Craig, sales manager for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “We’ve loved being part of the community in Sandbach while we’ve been building at Bramley Wood. It’s great to see the couples and families at the development building friendships.
“It’s important for us to support local initiatives and it’s wonderful to be involved with teams that encourage young people to get active.
“We wish Sandbach United under 12 Falcons the best of luck for the rest of the season.”
