TWManchester - Schools Celebrate Harvest Festival With Cash Boost

We provided a cash boost to schools in Lancashire and Cheshire to help pupils celebrate this year’s Harvest Festival.

A number of schools in the region each received a £200 donation to help fund food packages for a charity of their choice in conjunction with the annual Harvest Festival. The festival celebrates food grown from the land and usually takes place in the autumn months when food is shared amongst the local community.

One of the schools to benefit from the cash boost was Winnington Park Primary School and Nursery in Northwich, Cheshire.

Kim Cairns, Assistant Headteacher at Winnington Park Primary School and Nursery, says: “We are delighted that Taylor Wimpey is supporting our annual Harvest Festival with this generous donation.

“We are extremely grateful for the donations from both Taylor Wimpey and our local families – we can now help even more people in the local area.”

Chloe Dunn, Head of Sales at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “Harvest is a fantastic celebration which brings communities together to help those in need. We are thrilled to be partnering with schools on such a worthwhile cause.”

We are currently building homes at a number of developments in Lancashire and Cheshire, including Winnington Village, Low Moor Gardens and Dale Moor View.
