As part of our ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, we have recently provided £500 of funding to Burnbrae Primary in Hopefield, Bonnyrigg to go towards improving their school garden.
Burnbrae Primary School PTA raised funds to allow trees and shrubs to be planted as part of a community planting day, and our donation has gone some way to contributing to the transformation of the garden for the benefit of every pupil in school.
Commenting on the support they have received from Taylor Wimpey, Kerry Knight, Deputy Headteacher from Burnbrae Primary said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation. It has not only helped us to fund some additional planting for the school garden, but it has also given us the boost we needed to help us achieve our goal of providing lots of plants for our community planting day. On behalf of everyone at Burnbrae Primary School, I would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Taylor Wimpey.”
Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are delighted to be able to support Burnbrae Primary School with funding towards its project to enhance their school garden. The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes. Being able to work with local organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s great to know that with support like this that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in local communities.”
