As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, last month our West Scotland teams staff and charities committee donated £4,000 to one of Scotland’s most dedicated veteran’s charities Erskine, following a whole host of fundraising activities at a summer charity event earlier last year.

 

The summer fundraiser, which included a fun casino and a raffle and lots of fun raised £4,000 in total which has been matched by our local regional board team – raising an incredible £8,000 that has been shared between two charities close to the hearts of many of the staff including Erskine.

 

Erskine provides unrivalled support to veterans in Scotland through four care homes and a Veterans Village, an Activity Centre, five Assisted Living apartments, 44 Cottages and it has 24 Single Living Apartments which are currently under construction.

 

Commenting on the support it has received from Taylor Wimpey, Karen McAulay Community Fundraising Manager from Erskine, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation.”

 

Willie Burns, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: “The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes. Being able to work with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments and our regional business means a great deal to us and it’s great to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in local communities.
