Our South East team shows support for We are Beams

The Fire Walk saw over 60 daredevils in Dartford take on the challenge of walking between 15-20 feet over hot coals. The event raised over £10,000 for We Are Beams who provide vital support for disabled children and their families across Kent.

Andy Ray, Community Fundraiser at We Are Beams, said: “The last 2 years have been the toughest in our history due to the pandemic and the uncertainty in the economy. We Are Beams have managed to come through stronger and are delighted that we are able to hold fundraising events again.
“We are so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their generous donation. Their funding helped to cover the event costs so that all money raised by participants will go directly towards providing disabled children with opportunities and experiences including holiday play schemes, day trips and respite care within our Dragon’s Retreat.”

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South East, said: “Giving back to local communities is really important to us and we were delighted to support We Are Beams who do such fantastic work in supporting disabled children and their families. It’s fantastic to hear that the event was such a success and I’d like to congratulate everyone who took part.”
