As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, at the launch of two developments for sale in Troon, Taylor Wimpey West Scotland teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to confirm that it will donate £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at Princess Gate and Queens Court developments.
£1,025 was donated to the charity in February and in total, a grand sum of £5,650 will be paid to the RNLI, with all of it going directly to the local RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station.
The charity aims to use volunteers wherever possible and with voluntary donations, this donation contributes to funds which are necessary to make this achievable and will help with the RNLI’s overall aim to keep lives safe at sea.
The RNLI has a vital role within the community of Troon, and the local lifeboat station covers the lower Firth of Clyde with its two lifeboats. The crew members are dedicated to keeping the local community safe and they have received three RNLI medals for gallantry.
Urda Cotter from the RNLI said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation. This money will be put to work locally to help us achieve the overall aim of our service to the local community. On behalf of everyone at RNLI, I would like to say a huge thank you.”
Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: ”We are delighted to be able to support the RNLI at its Troon Lifeboat Station. This first donation of £1,025 reflects the beginning of a long-term relationship with this very worthy cause that provides a link between the new community that is emerging at Princess Gate and Queens Court, and the existing community of Troon. Working with the RNLI is a real honour and we are extremely proud to be showing our support in this way.
Being able to work with local charities and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s always lovely to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.”
