Taylor Wimpey helps to encourage pupils at Hundred of Hoo academy to walk to school
In support of International Walk to School month this October, we have donated 60 high visibility snap bands to pupils at Hundred of Hoo Academy in Hoo.
Sally Brading, Primary Principle at Hundred of Hoo Academy, says: “It’s really important to us that our pupils are happy and engaged when they arrive at school and walking is a great way for them to start the day. We want to encourage children and their parents to walk to school and the high visibility snap bands donated by Taylor Wimpey will help them to do this more safely.”
We help society celebrate life of pioneering engineer
An event celebrating the achievements of pioneering engineer Thomas Aveling was recently held in Hoo, with the help of our £300 donation. The Thomas Aveling Society hosted a special event outside St Werburgh Church and welcomed hundreds of visitors.
Thomas Aveling received recognition across Europe for his contributions in the field of engineering and was buried in Hoo after his death in 1882. Since its formation in 2014, the society has made sure that his achievements are recognised amongst the local community.
Michael Pearce, Chairman of the Thomas Aveling Society, said: "Celebrating important figures of our community is very important to us and we want to give Thomas the recognition and acknowledgement he deserves. We rely on support from local companies in order to put on commemorative events, so we are extremely grateful for Taylor Wimpey's donation."
