Darlington NECA has further developed its allotment project, thanks to a £500 donation from us.

The charity, which is based just a short distance from our Bishops Place development, currently works with vulnerable people across the region to assist them in their road back to recovery. 

Tony Beck, recovery lead at Darlington NECA, says: “We’re responsible for encouraging individuals within their recovery in the Darlington area including those who have had problems with gambling and substance abuse.

“Thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation, we have invested in various areas to develop the allotment project which will encourage self-sustainability while building self-esteem and motivation. In addition, we will also be donating some of the produce to Age UK.

“I would like to take this opportunity to offer Taylor Wimpey a huge thank you on behalf of myself and everybody at NECA.”

Darlington NECA currently employs a team of dedicated staff with donations enabling them to enhance their quality of activity and encourage engagement. 

Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, says: “NECA is an amazing charity which is helping so many people throughout the community every single day – and in many circumstances, saving their lives.

“With our Bishops Place development now taking shape right in the heart of Darlington, we were delighted to offer our support and look forward to seeing the allotment take shape.”
