TWNE - St Charles RCVA Donation

St Charles RCVA Primary School in Spennymoor will be investing in a brand-new multi-skills sports area, after we provided them with a £500 cash boost.

The school – which is located near our Durham Gate development – will use our donation to help fund the resurfacing work of the current outdoor area, which will provide brand new sports facilities for pupils at St Charles and surrounding schools.

Judith Reeves, headteacher at St Charles RCVA Primary School, says: “As a result of bad weather, the school field can become waterlogged and we therefore need to develop a new outdoor area to provide sporting opportunities for all seasons. Without support from the local community however, it would have been a real struggle.

“Thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation, we’re delighted to be able to start the resurfacing works to present a brand new playground and sports area, which we hope the local school community will benefit from.”   

Karl Morton, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North East, says: “St Charles is a fantastic school so close to where we are building, so as soon as we found out about the outdoor project we just had to get involved.

“We’re delighted to contribute to the Spennymoor community and hope the children at St Charles and other local schools will enjoy the new multi-skills sports area!”

There’s a superb selection of three and four-bedroom houses currently on sale at Durham Gate.
