Taylor Wimpey Saddles Up To Support Sport Relief

Date: Friday 19 March 2010

Staff at Taylor Wimpey’s Portus and Chancellors Park developments in Bristol have saddled up in support of Sport Relief this weekend.

Househunters are encouraged not to horse around, but instead get down to Portus or Chancellors Park, as Taylor Wimpey has pledged to donate £100 to Sport Relief for every home sold from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st March.

Sport Relief is part of Comic Relief, which helps disadvantaged people from the UK and abroad to help turn their lives around.

Richard Goad, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, said: “Money from Sport Relief benefits some fantastic local causes, such as Bristol Mind, Age Concern Bristol and Bristol Children’s Playhouse so we decided to support their fundraising this year by undertaking a little horse riding of our own in our pledge to donate cash for every house sold!

“The property market has begun to recover as banks begin to offer a greater range of mortgages. We’ve been experiencing very positive sales figures since the beginning of the year so are hoping to raise lots of cash for Sport Relief!”

For a marina lifestyle, head to Portus in Portishead where a popular first phase led to the early release of the second phase at Portus, which is currently selling a house a week. A newly opened showhome as well as the Portishead Marina achieving the Five Anchors, ranking it in the top harbours in the country, continues to drive sales at this successful development. Prices start from £149,995.

Alternatively, there are just two properties remaining at Chancellors Park, Bristol. A low-density development of three-bedroom townhouses and four-bedroom detached family homes, homes have sold out rapidly and just two four bedroom homes remain priced from £359,995.
