BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION BENEFITS FROM HOMEBUILDER'S SHOW HOME - JANUARY 2019
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has received a generous donation of household furniture and fittings from Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, for sale in the charity’s Hartlepool store.
The homebuilder donated all the contents of the five-bedroom ‘Frampton’ Show Home from its Wynyard Manor site, valued at £33,797.
All proceeds from the sales of the items, which includes furniture, light fittings, pictures and even curtains, will go directly to the British Heart Foundation.
Richard Lay, area manager at the British Heart Foundation comments: “We were delighted by Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation to the British Heart Foundation, the proceeds from which will help us to continue our vital research into heart and circulatory disease.
“We are extremely grateful to Taylor Wimpey and hope this will encourage shoppers in the Hartlepool area to check out the high-quality furniture available at their local British Heart Foundation store.”
Steven Ball, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “Our Wynyard Manor show homes have recently been given a facelift. As part of this, we wanted to donate the household items to a worthy cause like the British Heart Foundation.
“The work that the BHF do is invaluable and we are happy to be able to support them in whatever way that we can.”
The British Heart Foundation funds research into all forms of heart and circulatory disease and the things that cause them.
Steven adds: “This idea was something a little different and we hope that the British Heart Foundation have great success in fundraising from the items.”
Taylor’s Wimpey’s Lavenham show home at Wynyard Manor has also recently undergone refurbishment, with all furniture being donated to the Daisy Chain Project which supports families affected by autism in the Tees Valley area.
Wynyard Manor offers a range of two- to four-bedroom properties available for prospective buyers and visitors to view.
