Pupils at a primary school in Stratford, east London, enjoyed a laughter-filled morning at a pantomime after we offered to pay for the trip with a cash donation.
We paid for pupils and staff from the Park Primary School – near to our Chobham Manor development at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – to attend the Beauty and the Beast panto at the Theatre Royal Stratford East on Wednesday 7th January.
A total of 75 children and 14 teachers were given tickets to the fun-filled production, while performance programmes were also provided by us for the children to take home.
Helen Critchley, deputy headteacher at Park Primary School, says: “At Park we are committed to enriching our curriculum with creativity and awarding the children real opportunities that they might be able to write about.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for our children to experience live pantomime and they loved it. Many thanks to all at Taylor Wimpey who made this happen for our Year 2 children.”
Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the local communities in which we build our new homes, so we were more than happy to treat the children and staff at Park Primary School.
“Pantomimes are wonderful and enjoyable shows for children to attend, and we’re very happy that it sounds like everyone had a fantastic time!”
The new homes at Chobham Manor benefit from an incredible location, bordering Lee Valley VeloPark, the wide open spaces of the north of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and East Village, the former Athletes’ Village during the London 2012 Games.
The London Legacy Development Corporation and Chobham Manor LLP, a joint venture between Taylor Wimpey and L&Q, have designed a neighbourhood suitable for a wide-range of Londoners who want to build their lives in an exciting new community, including well-designed homes for people on a range of incomes.
