We show our support for vital work carried out by Stowmarket mental health group
A peer support group in Stowmarket for people living with enduring mental health problems, Enigma Peer Support, has received a welcome £200 boost from our East Anglia team.
Enigma was set up by Linda Attwood and Danielle Davis who, after completing a course in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills with a mental health trust, found there was no ongoing support for people with mental health problems in Suffolk or Norfolk. As well as Linda and Danielle running the group, there is also Jodi who has been a member for over two years and is now of the facilitators for Enigma.
The group has been so in-demand since it was founded in 2014, that it has expanded to around 30 members and holds two sessions a week in the Red Gables Wellbeing community hub. Members pay £2.50 each per session, which goes towards the room hire costs, but other than that, the group relies on donations to pay for resources and group activities.
Linda said: “We cannot thank Taylor Wimpey East Anglia enough for this kind donation, which will go towards helping us to cover the cost of room hire, promotional leaflets, stationery and so on. Donations and fundraising are vital for us to continue providing our services, which are a lifeline for many people in the region who have nowhere else to turn to for support and understanding.”
Caroline Cater, Sales & Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “At Taylor Wimpey we are committed to working closely with the local communities that we build in, and when we heard about the vital work Enigma provides we were keen to try and help. Linda and Danielle are amazing individuals, their dedication to helping and supporting others is inspirational to see. You just have to look at the group members’ testimonials on Enigma’s website to see what a life-changing service it offers.”

Feathered family hopes to build a nest at our Northfield View
Our sales staff are used to greeting visitors from all sorts of backgrounds with a range of different requirements. But over the past few weeks, one set of customers has ruffled a few feathers at the Northfield View development in Stowmarket.
The Northfield View Sales Team said: “We were a little puzzled to see this particular family arrive at Northfield View, but they have been anything but fowl to us. Our chats with them have gone swimmingly so far and we’re confident they will soon become fully-fledged members of the Taylor Wimpey community.”
Mother duck, Mrs Ruddy, added: “There are some quacking new homes at Northfield View, and I’m thrilled to have finally found the perfect place to raise my brood. We’ve been looking to migrate to Stowmarket for some time and we’re excited to start our latest duck tale here.”
