Homebuilder’s book pledge celebrates national reading initiative
Leading homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Manchester celebrated the 21st annual World Book Day on 7th March by donating £250 towards brand new books for children at St Paul’s Catholic Primary School.
The developer made the contribution in support of the nationwide initiative, which aims to encourage more children to enjoy reading and celebrates stories of all styles and genres.
Mr Allen, deputy headteacher at St Paul’s Catholic Primary School, comments: “Whether you’re six or sixty, reading plays such a key role in all our lives, which is why we’re thrilled to have partnered with Taylor Wimpey to further encourage our pupils’ love of reading.
“Reading encourages essential skills that will remain with them for years to come, so the earlier they are introduced to the world of books the better.
“We can’t thank Taylor Wimpey enough for the generous contribution towards our library, it will go a long way towards stocking up on new books for the children.”
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “Here at Taylor Wimpey, we understand the important role that literacy plays in young lives, which is why we’re only too happy to be a part of the school’s World Book Day celebrations.
“Being involved in the causes close to the hearts of the communities in which we build is something we pride ourselves on and we hope the children enjoy their new library books.”
St Paul’s is located just a short distance away from Taylor Wimpey’s newly-opened Clarendon Woods development.
