Supporting the communities in which we build
Proud to donate to Walthamstow children’s charity
Our East London team has helped support Walthamstow families in urgent need with a £500 donation to The Lloyd Park Children’s Charity.
The money will be put towards the charity’s Baby Bank, hosted at Priory Court Community Centre within Walthamstow’s Central Neighbourhood. The Baby Bank collects new and used baby essentials from the community to give to those in need in a similar way to a foodbank. Since its launch in 2013, the Baby Bank has helped hundreds of local families and children with donations of food, clothing, toys and other essentials.
Sarah Marsh, Baby Bank Manager said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation to the Baby Bank. As little as £5 can provide 44 nappies for a newborn baby, so the £500 that Taylor Wimpey has donated is incredibly impactful and really helps support the hard work we do here at The Lloyd Park Children’s Charity.”
Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East London, said: “We’re always proud to support causes within the towns and cities that we build our homes, and The Lloyd Park Children’s Charity is no exception to this. We’re delighted that our donation is going to have such a positive impact on those who use the Baby Bank’s services.”
Proud to be part of the community at Eclipse
A young professional and his pet pooch are right at home after moving into our Eclipse development. Joseph Williams, 29 secured his two bed apartment and made the move to East London with his Pomeranian, Morsen, in January this year using the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.
Formerly renting in Central London, Joseph was seeking an affordable, low-maintenance property with a short commute to his workplace in Liverpool Street. The 5% deposit that Help to Buy allows, coupled with Eclipse’s Zone 3 location, meant that the new build apartment was a great fit.
Joseph said: “I’ve been really impressed with Taylor Wimpey from the beginning. My first experience of registering my interest in an apartment at Eclipse was great, with attentive sales executives willing to help at every step of the buying journey. Because I commute to work, it’s so handy being right by both Tottenham Hale and Blackhorse Road station - within 30 minutes I’m into Liverpool Street.
“Eclipse really does feel like a community; I get on with my neighbours and we have a lot in common, plus Morsen is really at home here which is fantastic. Walthamstow is up-and-coming, so to be part of a growing community that’s quieter than Central London is a huge plus. As well as this, I wanted a place which I could customise to my liking with minimal work on the infrastructure of the place itself and my apartment really fits the bill in that respect.”
Help to Buy - London
With Help to Buy London the government will lend you up to 40% of the price of your new home!
The well established Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme is already hugely successful with people buying new build homes in England worth up to £600,000.
Given the current property market in Greater London, the government has increased the maximum equity loan it gives new buyers in the area to 40%.
With London Help to Buy equity loan:
- you’ll need to contribute at least 5% of the property price as a deposit
- the government will give you a loan for up to 40% of the price
- you’ll need a mortgage of up to 55% to cover the rest
This development is managed by the East London Taylor Wimpey regional office
