A day centre in Liphook, Hampshire, has been able to build a brand new fence in its garden after we lent a helping hand.
Liphook Day Centre – just down the road from our Maple Park development in the village – provides a place for elderly people in the area to meet, take part in activities and enjoy a freshly cooked meal.
Our donation has paid for a new fence to be installed at the rear of the day centre, allowing visitors to have more privacy during the summer months.
Liphook Day Centre Chairman Bob Hall says: “We provide a service where our clients are picked up from their homes and brought to our centre, where they can enjoy a cup of tea, good company and a good meal, and we sometimes take them on a trip to Southsea for a walk along the sea front.
“The new fence will enable us to use the outside space a lot more – especially during the summer – and will be welcomed by everyone who comes here.
“We always greatly appreciate any donation, and on behalf of the trustees, clients and community, I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their very kind contribution.”
Opened in 1982, Liphook Day Centre is an independent charity which relies on donations and fundraising to continue running.
Fiona Creed, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, and our donation to Liphook Day Centre is a great example of how we can help.
“We’re glad to have been able to offer something to the centre to support the fantastic work that they do, and hope the new fence provides visitors with more privacy so they can enjoy the summer season in peace.”
Maple Park currently offers a choice of four-bedroom homes.
