Our South East team hosted a Charity Golf Day at Birchwood Park Golf & Country Club Golf Club on Thursday 7th September, in order to raise significant funds and much needed awareness for Amber, a local youth homelessness charity

An exciting day for a great cause

Amber helps young homeless people to transform their lives by giving them a safe place to live, as well as support and opportunities to find employment, education or training. The charity has four centres located in Devon, Wiltshire, Surrey and Kent. 

Our South East team raised £18,000 during the Charity Golf Day and the proceeds will help the young people living at the Downsview centre, located just outside of Ashford.

Darren Ellis, Fundraising Manager for Amber, said: “We are truly grateful to Taylor Wimpey South East for organising such a wonderful event. The whole day was amazing and the money will really help support the young people at our centre in Ashford. 

“In addition to the funds raised, the event has created some amazing opportunities. For instance, Jacob, one of the people we are currently helping, has started an apprenticeship bricklaying programme with one of Taylor Wimpey’s contractors. This kind of support is vital to helping us provide young homeless people with opportunities to transform their lives and help them back into work.”

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South East, said: “It’s really important for us to give back to the communities in which we build and we are delighted to have raised £18,000 for Amber. 

“The work they do to help young people during their time of need is truly inspiring and we have no doubt these funds will be put to great use in helping them take the next steps in their new lives.”
