We are proud to donate £250 to the Bluebird Community Partnership
We gifted £250 to the Bluebird Community Partnership following the charity’s recent win in the donation box scheme at Greenhill Gardens.
The Bluebird Community Partnership is part of Community Transport Sussex and provides vital transport to vulnerable individuals across the Mid Sussex district. The charity’s services include the provision of accessible transport for people with reduced mobility or poor transport links, a volunteer car service, a community bus, and accessible transport to schools and day care centres.
Matt Roberts, CEO at Community Transport Sussex, said: “The £250 donation from Taylor Wimpey came as a lovely surprise and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us. The donation from Taylor Wimpey will go towards the provision of our dial-a-ride service which helps to get those who have difficulty accessing public transport out and about and reduces the risk of them becoming socially isolated.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “We were delighted to make a donation to the Bluebird Community Partnership. The charity does fantastic work and I hope that our funding will help with the continuation of their services.
We are proud to support Rockinghorse Children's Charity
We are committed to supporting local communities and recently donated £250 donation to the Rockinghorse Children's Charity which aims to improve the lives of sick children and babies. The Brighton-based charity raises money for life-saving medical equipment for the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, and its sister site, the Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.
Rockinghorse Children's Charity are currently working in partnership with local hospitals and respite centres to fund projects which focus on improving the physical and emotional well-being of sick children and Taylor Wimpey are proud to be able to offer their support.
Commenting on the donation from Taylor Wimpey Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse Children's Charity, said: “The whole team were delighted when we found out that Taylor Wimpey had offered to make a donation. We don’t receive any government funding so it’s goodwill gestures like this that allow us to maintain our fundraising efforts. We believe no matter where they are, children should always be allowed to be children, and I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for helping us to continue to work toward this.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey South Thames said: “We recognise the importance of giving back to the local areas in which we build our new homes and it was our pleasure to present the Rockinghorse Children's Charity with a £250 donation.”
Kangaroos bounce away with our donation
We are pleased to announce that the charity Kangaroos are the first winners of our recently launched donation box scheme at Greenhill Gardens. Our charitable initiative invites visitors and residents to Greenhill Gardens to vote for one of three local good causes to receive a monetary donation. Kangaroos, a charity which supports children and young adults with learning disabilities, received the most votes from the local community and we gifted them with £250.
Commenting on our donation, Samantha Norgate, Fundraising and Communications Co-ordinator at Kangaroos, said: “With the continuous threat of cuts to voluntary sector funding we have been trying to increase awareness of the work we do and to encourage more voluntary donations. We were therefore delighted to find out that the local community had chosen us to be the first recipients of a £250 donation from Taylor Wimpey. Our clubs are in high demand and the activities we put on really do help to improve the children’s social skills, independence and self esteem. It’s vital that we continue our work and donations like this from Taylor Wimpey will help us to do just that and I’d like to say a big thank you for the support.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “The clubs and activities that Kangaroos organise help so many children across Mid Sussex and I have no doubt that our £250 donation will be put to excellent use.”
