HOMEBUILDER'S BOOK PLEDGE CELEBRATES NATIONAL READING INITIATIVE - MARCH 2019
Leading homebuilder Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire celebrated the 21st annual World Book Day on 7th March by donating 30 copies of its children’s book ‘How We Build Your Home’, to the children at Alverton Community 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.
Richard Linsley, headteacher at Alverton Community Primary School comments: “Whether you’re six or sixty, reading plays such a key role in all our lives. We’re thrilled to have partnered with Taylor Wimpey to further encourage our pupils’ love of reading and which is also perfectly aligned with our year of Vibrant Vocabulary this year.
“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 contribution towards our library.”Steven Ball, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, 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 books.”
Alverton Community Primary School is located just a short distance away from Taylor Wimpey’s Thurstan Park development which features a range of exclusive two- to four-bedroom homes.
HOMEBUILDER INVESTS IN LOCAL COMMUNITY WITH DONATIONS OF OVER £4,000 TO WORTHWHILE CAUSES - JUNE 2019
National homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, has committed over £4,000 to organisations and schools that serve the local community close to its Thurstan Park development on Northallerton Road.
The donations have been made to local schools, sports clubs, charities and organisations over a two-year period and have helped to purchase new sports kits, fund refurbishment projects and raise vital funds for families affected by Huntington’s Disease.
One of the many causes to benefit from Taylor Wimpey’s commitment to invest in local communities was Northallerton Rugby Union Football Club, which received nearly £900 towards the purchase of training gear for its First XV team.
Another sporting club to receive assistance was Brompton Juniors Football Club, who used the £700 donation to buy brand-new kits for the children to keep them looking smart and professional on and off the pitch.
Steven Ball, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “As a national homebuilder, we are committed to enriching the communities we build in through participating and donating to worthy causes.
“As well as building much-needed homes, we understand that house hunters are looking for more than simply purchasing four walls and a roof. They want a real sense of community and a large part of this is supporting clubs, schools and charities, such as Alverton Primary School and Brompton Juniors Football Club, to enable them to continue to make a real difference in the area they serve.
“It is with great pride that we are able to support these causes and help to foster the sense of community spirt in the local area.”
When complete, Thurstan Park will feature 141 two- to five-bedroom homes, half of which are now occupied/reserved since having opened its doors just eighteen-months ago.
