WEB - Taylor Wimpey - donation to Crookham CE Infant School

Pupils at a Hampshire infant school can now enjoy learning in a new library, helped by a donation from us.

Our South Thames team, which is building new homes at Oaklands at Crookham Park in Church Crookham, donated £250 to Crookham Church of England (Aided) Infant School in nearby Gally Hill Road.

The money went towards the school’s £10,000 fundraising drive for a new library and children’s DT/cookery room, with the rest of the costs being provided by the Diocese of Guildford.

Katharine Bowen, headteacher at Crookham Church of England Infant School, says: “We’re delighted to have received this donation from Taylor Wimpey. We put it towards our new library, which has just been built.

“This exciting project will enhance the learning environment for all our pupils and we’d like to say a big thank you for Taylor Wimpey’s support – it’s much appreciated.”

Susan Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Thames, says: “We were delighted to help Crookham Church of England Infant School with their new library project and hope the pupils really enjoy learning there.

“As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, and this donation is a great example of the way we can help schools and other local organisations.”

There’s a wonderful range of homes available at Oaklands at Crookham Park, including one bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses.
