Winning donation for Wigan charity

Date: Tuesday 16 December 2014


Wigan-based charitable organisation My Life has invested in brand-new audio equipment, a cooking system and samba drums after we provided a £500 donation.

My Life, which is based just a short distance from our Oakwood Meadows development in Shevington, has purchased the equipment for its laughter dome; just in time for the winter months when a number of samba sessions are scheduled to take place.

Caroline Tomlinson, CEO at My Life comments: “We had been looking to upgrade our laughter dome for some time; and now, thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation, we finally can.

“We work with hundreds of people, of all ages, across the whole of the North West; so this support will really go a long way and means a lot to so many people.”

My Life is a not-for-profit organisation which supports people with disabilities, those who suffer from mental health problems as well as the elderly.

Chloe Dunn, head of sales at Taylor Wimpey Manchester explains: “My Life is an extraordinary organisation and does some amazing work throughout the community.

“The laughter dome in particular is a lovely concept so we jumped at the chance to help upgrade the area for people to enjoy.”

Caroline concludes: “Taylor Wimpey’s help has been invaluable, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank them on behalf of everybody from My Life.”

Oakwood Meadows currently features a range of three and four bedroom homes.
