The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre celebrates second donation from Taylor Wimpey
The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre has been awarded a second donation of £250. The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre received the most votes throughout the month of April and were also named as winners in November last year.
The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre is an independent and entirely self-funded charity located in the grounds of Crawley Hospital. The charity provides support to cancer patients and their carers and families in a variety of ways including complementary therapy and through social events and singing workshops.
Commenting on Taylor Wimpey’s donation, Marilyn Drury, Support Centre Manager at the Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre said: “We are very grateful to have received another donation from Taylor Wimpey. We rely on funding to maintain the valuable support services we offer and this donation will help us to continue to help both cancer patients and their families in West Sussex. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey on behalf of everyone at the Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre provides invaluable services for individuals suffering from cancer and we are delighted to be able to make a contribution towards the work they do. This is the second time that the charity has received the most votes from the public in our donation box scheme which just shows how much everyone in the local community values the support they provide.“
We lend St Francis Rangers Youth Football Club a helping hand
St Francis Rangers Youth Football Club in Haywards Heath has received a welcome donation of over £1,000 from us to cover the cost of kit and tracksuit tops for the squad, manager and the two coaches of their under 11's team.
Commenting on the support it has received from us, Steve Adams, a coach for the under 11's said, “I thought I would ask for the kits and tracksuit tops that we needed and would have been thrilled with the kit but to receive both is beyond amazing. Last season we had hand me-downs and the kit was looking really tired. I am so grateful to Susan Joseph and all at Taylor Wimpey South Thames for this wonderful donation. This season it will be all new and smart with the Taylor Wimpey logo, which is absolutely brilliant. I think the lads will be made up by this – it will give them a bit of pride.”
Susan Joseph , Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South Thames said: “We’re delighted to make this donation to St Francis Youth Football Club’s Under-11s team and help them with all the great work they do for youth sport in the area. We feel it’s extremely important to support clubs and organisations that make such a positive contribution to the communities in which we build our new homes."
Ben and Sophie get Help to Buy a stunning new home at Westvale Park
Ben Overton and his partner Sophie Britton were absolutely delighted to take advantage of the fantastic Help to Buy scheme at our Westvale Park development.
Having previously owned an apartment in the town, the couple decided they needed a little extra space following the birth of their son, Teddy – and the stunning new three-bedroom detached ‘Easedale’ ticked all their boxes.
“We knew that where we were living before wasn’t really suitable for raising a child,” explains Ben (35), “but our new home has plenty of room for Teddy to grow. We’ve been living at Westvale Park for the past three months and we’re all loving life here.
“To secure the house, we used Help to Buy because it didn’t make sense for us not to. The whole process was really smooth and the Sales Executive, Amy, was absolutely fantastic. It just made everything so much simpler and alleviated all the stress from buying. We even used Taylor Wimpey’s recommended Mortgage Advisor, who was just brilliant.”
Under Help to Buy, eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell can access a Government loan for up to 20% of the full price of their new home, so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%.
Help to Buy is available on new-build homes up to the value of £600,000 and there’s no salary cap for purchasers taking advantage of the scheme.
Ben continues: “Now that we’ve moved in, we’re so glad that we decided to buy a new build rather than going for an older property, which can involve a lot of time, effort and money. Taylor Wimpey has been first class from start to finish and I know that if we have any issues we can now go to the Site Manager Jamie, who I simply cannot fault – he is always on hand whenever we need him.
“Westvale Park is just as great a place to live as we first thought it would be and it has a nice little community feel to it. It’s very aesthetically pleasing and once all the facilities have been built, the development is bound to be even better! It’ll be great to eat at the restaurant and we’re hoping that Teddy will go to the primary school that’s planned on-site.
“In terms of other amenities, there is a huge 24-hour supermarket just down the road and we’re also very close to Reigate which has a wide selection of shops.”
While Ben works as a medical representative, Sophie (35) is a teacher, and both are based in London.
“My job involves a lot of travelling overseas, so being near to Gatwick comes as a big help,” Ben adds. “Sophie is currently working part time and her commute is great as she can just jump on the bus and that way she doesn’t have to worry about driving.
“We really do feel like we’re in very well-connected location and we absolutely love the house. The team at Westvale Park has been on-hand every step of the way to help us out with anything we need and we really could not be happier.”
