Our North West team surprised the Soup and Seedlings Club with a £100 donation towards a special Christmas lunch for around 100 older people as part of the 12 Days of Taylor Wimpey Christmas Advent campaign. The cash surprise was used to provide transport to the lunch, enabling people who wouldn’t have been able to attend, due to frailty, mobility and other problems, to do so.
Canon Malcolm Rogers, vicar of St Gabriel’s Huyton which operates the group, said: “We’re thrilled to have been gifted this surprise cash boost from Taylor Wimpey. It’s lovely to see such a large and well-known company give back to causes close to its developments – this money made a big difference by enabling us to provide food and friendship to many local people in our community.”
The regional campaign, 12 Days of Taylor Wimpey Christmas Advent, saw the the region make a dozen surprise contributions to causes in the area, including Rainbow House and Cheshire Without Abuse.
Stuart Craig, Head of Sales for Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “It’s always nice to give back to those causes close to the hearts of the communities in which we build.
“We wanted to do something extra special and make a real difference to the schools, clubs and organisations that go above and beyond to deliver stellar services across the North West. We hope to make this an annual occasion and luck forward to gifting more organisations in 2018!”
