Millbrook Primary School in Shevington has received a cash boost of £200 for its National Den Day initiative from our team in Manchester.

The school, which is based close to our Oakwood Meadows development, hosted a den-building event called ‘Taking a Walk on the Wild Side’ on Friday 17th June, to raise funds for global charity Save the Children.  

Darsey Lang, Reception class teacher at Millbrook Primary School, says: “We were fascinated by Save the Children’s National Den Day campaign and wanted to show our support by getting fully involved.

“We invited parents and families to support our students in a day of den-building, which proved to be a great way to engage our children’s creativity further, while of course raising money for a great cause.

“Taylor Wimpey’s donation was much appreciated and will go entirely to the charity, to enable them to continue with their fantastic work.”

Save the Children is a leading charity which organises world-class initiatives to save children’s lives. Its projects cover education, healthcare, and emergency relief, among other issues, and reach millions of children every year.

Chloe Dunn, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “This was an excellent opportunity for us to make a difference both locally and internationally, by supporting Millbrook Primary School’s efforts in raising money for Save the Children.

“As a housebuilder with local and international operations, we are honoured to be able to improve communities wherever we work.”

Since launching our development in 2012, we have partnered with Millbrook Primary School on a number of initiatives including educational visits, Walk to School Month, and Harvest.

Carly Royal, assistant head teacher at the school, concludes: “On behalf of the whole school, I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation.”

There’s a wonderful choice of three and four‑bedroom homes at Oakwood Meadows.
