We donate life saving defibrillator to Rolvenden community

Our South East team has donated a public access defibrillator (PAD) to the community in Rolvenden. In a joint initiative with the British Heart Foundation (BHF), we are donating PADs to communities around the UK to help people who suffer from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

All of our developments in the UK have a PAD on site and, now that work has finished at our Halden Field development, Rolvenden Parish Council and the residents of Rolvenden are the latest to be gifted this potentially life-saving equipment.

Councillor Denise Curtain of Rolvenden Parish Council said: “This defibrillator will save precious time in the case of any life-threatening situations. The first few minutes are absolutely crucial in an emergency and I’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their generous donation in providing such an important piece of equipment to our village. It has been installed at the Bull Holiday Lodges along with extra lighting to make it extremely easy to access.”

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South East, said: “We’re proud to be working in partnership with the BHF in helping to ensure that more defibrillators are available for people who might need them. We’d like to thank Rolvenden Parish Council for their help in ensuring that the defibrillator is easily accessible and, while we hope it won’t need to be used very often, it’s reassuring to know that it’s there in the event of an emergency.”
