NY- RSPCA plants donation - web

We were delighted to make a donation of plants to the RSPCA Great Ayton Animal Centre in Middlesbrough recently.

The centre, which is based on Yarm Lane, just a short distance from a number of our developments in the region, relies solely on donations to continue delivering its vital services.

Debbie Fowle, centre manager at the centre, says: “The plants donated by Taylor Wimpey will help to attract wildlife which, in turn, will help to create an interest for the animals in our care – many of which spend their time watching bees and butterflies to alleviate stress.

“Last year, the centre’s expenditure was in excess of £500,000 and with costs regularly increasing, we rely heavily on all types of donations.”

The RSPCA Great Ayton Animal Centre currently houses a number of different animals including, cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and birds.

Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire explains: “Great Ayton Animal Centre cares for and rescues thousands of animals every year, so we’re thrilled to be getting involved.

“The centre has been a fundamental part of the community for over 20 years and with costs constantly rising, we wanted to support in whatever way possible.”

We’re currently building homes at a number of developments in Middlesbrough, including High Farm, Scholars Rise and Rose Cottage Farm.
