Two care facilities in Essex have received care packages and donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) from our East London team.
As part of our continuing efforts to support local frontline workers, the East London team procured essential resources, including face masks, aprons and gloves, for The Marillac Neurological Care Centre in Brentwood and Evelyn May House in Laindon, along with care packages of toiletries, games and food for seven other care homes in the county. The team also donated an iPad to Evelyn May House, allowing residents to keep in touch with loved ones.
The donation is part of the wider work that we are doing across the country to help support communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Other ways in which the housebuilder has offered its support during this time include cash donations to community groups, and engaging with schools close to its developments whilst teaching continues remotely.
Paul Dixon, Managing Director at The Marillac Neurological Care Centre said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey East London for this kind donation and for their support in the current climate. Our staff work incredibly hard every day to ensure that our residents are healthy, happy and safe, so this donation of vital equipment along with the care package is a huge boost to us in such a difficult time.”
Sarah Smith, Home Manager of Evelyn May House, said, “On behalf of all staff and residents at Evelyn May House, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Taylor Wimpey. The iPad has enabled families to keep in touch via video calling and the various games and puzzles help to keep everyone interacting and occupied during this difficult time. Additionally, the PPE and toiletries were very much appreciated too. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support.”
