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 Tameside 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.”
