We are committed to supporting the communities in which it builds and our South Thames has recently donated £250 donation to the Rockinghorse Children's Charity which aims to improve the lives of sick children and babies. The Brighton-based charity raises money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment for the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, and its sister site, the Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.
Rockinghorse Children's Charity are currently working in partnership with local hospitals and respite centres to fund projects which focus on improving the physical and emotional well-being of sick children and we are proud to be able to offer their support.
Commenting on the donation from Taylor Wimpey Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse Children's Charity, said: “The whole team were delighted when we found out that Taylor Wimpey had offered to make a donation. We don’t receive any government funding so it’s goodwill gestures like this that allow us to maintain our fundraising efforts. We believe no matter where they are, children should always be allowed to be children, and I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for helping us to continue to work toward this.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey South Thames said: “We recognise the importance of giving back to the local areas in which we build our new homes and it was our pleasure to present the Rockinghorse Children's Charity with a £250 donation. The charity does such fantastic work and we hope that our funding will go some way towards helping them to continue to raise much needed money for services which are invaluable for poorly children.”
