The club is based on High Street, in Burniston, and just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s High Mill development, in Scalby. The club also has a qualified instructor and bowling equipment, and offers free coaching where required.
Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “The club is a valuable asset to the Scarborough community, so as soon as we heard about the fundraiser, we jumped at the chance to help out.
“This will be the first club to offer a short mat centre and indoor bowls in Scarborough, so we’re thrilled to have helped fund the facilities.”
Elaine concludes: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for the generous donation on behalf of the whole club.”
Taylor Wimpey makes memories with Scarborough Hospital
Taylor Wimpey is supporting Scarborough Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit with its touching ‘Journey Books’ initiative.
The homebuilder has donated £500, to be used to create the Journey Books, which document a baby’s journey from premature or poorly birth, right through to health and going home.
Maya Richardson, community fundraiser at the York Teaching Hospital Charity, comments: “These personal books provide incredible comfort to the families who stay with us, and the generous donation by Taylor Wimpey will deliver materials and books for so many babies, which is just fantastic.
“As with all public health hospitals, we always welcome funding and assistance. To be able to provide this additional emotional support to these families is just brilliant, and we are very grateful for the donation.”
Scarborough Hospital provides a number of medical services to the population of the Yorkshire coast. The hospital is the second largest in the region.
Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “It goes without saying that the work carried out by Scarborough Hospital is immeasurable, and as a business with strong ties to the local community, we are keen to support charities in the areas in which we operate.
“With our High Mill development based so close to the hospital, we are aware of the amazing work the Special Care Baby Unit does, and we’re only too happy to help.”
Maya concludes: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey for their support on behalf of the hospital and families. It truly is much appreciated.”
