We honour key workers in Dudley with donation towards monument

Date: Thursday 17 September 2020


Our West Midlands team has donated £1000 towards Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council’s new project, to build a permanent monument outside Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley.

The monument will act as a lasting reminder of the bravery of all frontline workers in Dudley during the Coronavirus pandemic, and to publicly recognise their hard work during this difficult time.

Councillor Keiran Casey, for the Upper Gornal and Woodsetton Ward, said: “Staff across the country that have worked in our hospitals, care homes and other key roles throughout the pandemic, have played an unbelievably important role. We thought the monument would be the perfect way for us to show our appreciation, but this would not be possible without donations from local businesses.

“On behalf of everyone involved in this important community project, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for their generous support and we can’t wait until the monument is unveiled to the public!”

Angie Prince, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Midlands, commented: “We are so thankful for the amazing work our frontline staff do every single day. We think that the monument is a lovely way to acknowledge the vital role they played in keeping our country safe.

“In such unprecedented times, it means a great deal that we are able to offer our support to such a worthy cause and we are looking forward to seeing the monument once it’s unveiled to the public.”
