Homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey Manchester, has donated £400 to Wilmslow-based nursery, Footsteps Nursery, to aid them with the purchase of a defibrillator.
The nursery, which is situated just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s Heathfield Farm development, is committed to ensuring the safety of children up to five years old, while providing an environment where they can learn, play and develop.
Maira McKiernan, nursery manager, comments: “We were delighted when the team from Taylor Wimpey chose to donate to our nursery. We had been fundraising for a while through various activities, including bake sales and sponsored walks, to ensure we could afford this life-saving piece of equipment, but it would have taken perhaps another year until we could afford a defibrillator ourselves.
“This donation has made such a difference and the defibrillator will have a huge impact if we’re ever unfortunate enough to have to use it.”
According to the latest research by the British Heart Foundation, locating a defibrillator and administering it alongside CPR can double a person’s chance of survival.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “Items such a defibrillators can quite literally be the difference between life and death in a number of cases. This equipment will make a big difference, not just to the nursery, but to the local community who can all use the device should they need to.
“We’re proud to provide great homes, as well give back to the communities in which we build and we love working with such great community causes. We hope to see some younger residents of Heathfield Farm enjoying their time at Footsteps Nursery in the future.”
Maria concludes: “We can’t thank Taylor Wimpey enough for the donation, it is very much appreciated.”
Homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Manchester has donated £500 to Wilmslow Academy to support its annual winter fair.
The school, which is situated just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s Heathfield Farm development, welcomed a donation to help bring its Winter Wonderland to life. The homebuilder’s donation was used to create Santa’s Grotto, complete with Father Christmas himself and an elf.
Charlotte Clowes, principal of Wilmslow Academy, comments: “This is one of our most anticipated event of the year and something that pupils, parents and teachers really look forward to. Every year our PTA work really hard to make the event a success and this year was no exception.
“Christmas is a time to bring people together and as Taylor Wimpey are becoming part of our community, with Heathfield Farm opening up right on our doorstep, we were keen to get them involved in the fair.”
Heathfield Farm, which is due to open its doors in Spring 2019, will feature 161 homes in a range of different styles, from apartment to detached homes. With one- to five-bedroom options available, there’s something for everyone. With a great location, a range of local amenities and excellent schools nearby, Heathfield Farm is perfect for families and first-time buyers alike.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “When the school got in touch with us, we were more than happy to provide support for the Winter Fair, after all, Christmas is the time for giving back.
“We’re always proud to be involved with the communities in which we build and were thrilled to be part of such a well-loved event.
The grotto looked fantastic and we’re sure the parents and pupils had a great time.”
Charlotte concludes: “We are keen to continue our work with Taylor Wimpey and are very grateful for their donation. Our school is at the heart of the local community and welcomes the opportunity to show any prospective parents around our wonderful school. We would like to wish everyone there a merry Christmas!”
