Our South Thames team are delighted to be offering a second donation to Horley Infant School in under a month. The Surrey based school, which recently received £250 from the housebuilder to celebrate World Book Day on 1st March, has been crowned the most recent winner of the donation box scheme which is currently running at its Westvale Park development in Horley. The initiative invites local residents and visitors to our Westvale Park development to vote for one of three local causes to benefit from a monetary donation. Horley Infant School were lucky enough to receive the most votes in February and have been awarded with a further £250.
Established in 1864, Horley Infant School currently has 294 pupils in reception to year two. The school runs a range of popular extra curricular activities, including cooking, dance, art and sewing clubs, and also offers both breakfast and after school clubs to support the needs of working families. Our most recent donation will go towards new outdoor play equipment for the school, including balls and skipping ropes.
Commenting on the donation made by our South Thames region, Hilary Salter, Headteacher at Horley Infant School, said: “We cannot thank Taylor Wimpey enough for this donation, their financial support will enable us to continue to improve the facilities and activities that we can offer to the young pupils at our school. Taylor Wimpey gifted us £250 for World Book Day at the beginning of March, so we feel very lucky to be receiving another donation.”
Susan Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Thames said: “It is a privilege to offer further financial backing to Horley Infant School and we are pleased to hear that our donations will go some way to helping to provide valuable resource for children. Our donation box scheme was launched because we are committed to helping local organisations, schools, community groups and charities who make such a positive contribution to the community and we look forward to making further donations in the coming months.”
