Our South East region has donated £2,000 to Moor House School’s charity ball, which took place on Saturday 24th February at De Vere Beamount Estate in Old Windsor. The event raised £15,000 to fund a new occupational therapy facility for the pupils at the Oxted based school which specialises in helping children with complex speech and language difficulties.
The 007 themed ball welcomed 100 guests including parents, trustees and friends of the school who enjoyed an entertainment filled evening with acts such as The Julie Sianne Theatre Arts School dressed to match the theme of the event. Taylor Wimpey’s contribution helped to cover the costs of food for the evening which allowed any profits made from ticket sales to go towards the overall fundraising total.
Scarlett Ford was the main organiser of the event and has a young daughter who attends the school. Commenting on the support received from Taylor Wimpey, she said: “We are extremely grateful for the donation we have received from Taylor Wimpey.
“Their contribution not only enabled us to put out some delicious food but also meant that the school could benefit from all of the money raised through ticket sales.
“We are delighted with our final fundraising total which will go a long way towards providing a new occupational therapy facility that the children will benefit greatly from.”
Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South East said: “We were delighted to support the Moor House Charity Ball with a donation towards its event. The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes. Giving something back to the communities in which we build means a great deal to us and it’s great to hear that the ball was such a great success.”
