NEWS - TWST - Tweseldown Playgroup Donation Box


Our South Thames region has awarded Tweseldown Playgroup with £250 as part of its donation box scheme. The competition encourages residents from Church Crookham and surrounding areas to vote from one of three chosen local causes to receive a monetary donation. Tweseldown Playgroup was crowned the most recent winner after receiving the most votes from the local community in the month of December 2017.


Tweseldown Playgroup in Church Crookham provides education for local pre-school children in a stimulating and nurturing environment that enables the children to learn through play. The group was established in 1981, and now has approximately 50 children, aged between two and five, attending nine sessions a week. The pre-school strives to be responsive to the needs of the community and this is evident in the level of parent staff participation at each monthly committee meeting.


Penny Beven, Manager of Tweseldown Playgroup, said: “We are incredibly grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation, it came as such a nice surprise and is a brilliant way to kick off 2018. The work we do really contributes to the lives of the children and the parents in the local community and it’s brilliant to have a big company like Taylor Wimpey supporting us. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Taylor Wimpey on behalf of Tweseldown Playgroup.”


Susan Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “Tweseldown Playgroup offers fantastic services for young children which are vital to their education and well-being. We are pleased to be able to support a local cause that has such a positive impact in Church Crookham and are committed not only to providing high quality new homes, but also to contributing to the local communities in which we build. It’s great to see our donation box scheme raising awareness of the positive work done by charities and community groups in the area.”
