Northwich teenager Tom Rowley has received a cash boost from us towards his fundraising efforts in aid of restoring Barnton Skate park.

Our Manchester team has contributed £500 to Tom’s campaign towards the much-needed refurbishment of the skate park – taking Tom well over his initial target of £2,900.

Tom, who is 16-years-old and a regular at Barnton Skatepark, says: “Thanks to the support of businesses like Taylor Wimpey we are getting closer to a new and improved skate park every day. It’s quite exciting – and it’s been overwhelming how much people have helped.”
Barnton Skate park opened 11 years ago and is free to the public. The skate park is based just a short distance from our Winnington Village development on Winnington Avenue.

Chloe Dunn, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, adds: “We were really impressed when we heard about Tom’s endeavours and were keen to help him. He is a real credit to the local community so it was great to support with this donation.”

Tom concludes: “I’ve had so much support from schools, the community and businesses like Taylor Wimpey so I am incredibly grateful.”
Winnington Village currently features a range of three and four-bedroom homes.
