The NeuroMuscular Centre in Winsford, Cheshire, has received a welcome donation of over £800 from our North West team.

The cash will go towards the charity’s Accessible Gardening Project, paying for raised wheelchair-accessible planters as well as compost, plants and seeds.

Matthew Lanham, chief executive of the NeuroMuscular Centre, says: “Wheelchair users often find gardening difficult, if not impossible. Even traditional raised beds are not ideal when you are in a wheelchair because of the difficulties involved in getting your chair close enough.

“Since gardening is known to have a positive impact on health and wellbeing, we wanted to make sure that everyone is able to participate. This donation has really helped us on our way to achieving this goal.

“On behalf of everyone at the centre, I would like to extend a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for its support.”

Founded in 1990, the NeuroMuscular Centre provides a range of services and advice to improve the quality of life for adults with Muscular Dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions.

Stuart Craig, Head of Sales for Taylor Wimpey North West, comments: “We made a donation to the NeuroMuscular Centre in 2015 when our Spring Croft development opened, and when we saw what a great impact it had we knew we wanted to continue our relationship with the charity.

“The centre does some fantastic work in the local community and we are delighted that we could help it out with another brilliant project. These new planters will make a real difference to the lives of some wheelchair users and we hope that we can work with the centre again soon.”

Spring Croft currently offers buyers a superb collection of four-bedroom homes in a range of designs.
