We support Motor Neurone Disease Association with Tour de South Wales challenge

Our South Wales team recently demonstrated its commitment to making a positive impact in its community by organising a two-day bike challenge at our Edlogan Wharf development. The event aimed to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a cause that holds deep personal significance for the team.


Raising money for charity

The initiative was fueled by the heartfelt connection of one team member who is caring for a loved one affected by Motor Neurone Disease. In solidarity, our South Wales team set out on a virtual cycling journey, covering the cumulative distance of all our sites across South Wales, starting from our head office in Cardiff.

Over the course of two days, multiple team members took turns pedalling on stationary bikes, collectively covering an impressive 193 miles—20 miles beyond their initial target. This remarkable effort not only showcased their determination but also underscored their dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by Motor Neurone Disease.

In addition to surpassing their cycling goal, the team successfully reached their fundraising target, raising £1050 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association—a testament to the generosity and support of the local community.

Danielle Heard, Sales and Customer Director at Taylor Wimpey South Wales, said: "At Taylor Wimpey South Wales, we believe in the power of community and compassion. The Tour de South Wales Challenge was not just a physical feat but a testament to the strength of our team and the community we serve. We are honoured to contribute to the Motor Neurone Disease Association and support our team members in their personal journey. Together, we pedal towards a future free from the challenges of Motor Neurone Disease."

Our South Wales team extends their sincere thanks to all participants, supporters, and donors who contributed to the success of the Tour de South Wales Challenge. The funds raised will go towards supporting the Motor Neurone Disease Association's crucial research and support programs.
