We raise £8,000 for Buckinghamshire based youth charity
Our South Midlands team has proudly raised £8,000 for the Action4Youth charity, with the funds being raised from their annual charity triathlon.
Supporting our communities
The charity triathlon is an annual event, with a different charity being selected as the recipient each year with Action4Youth being chosen by our South Midlands team for 2023.
Based in Buckinghamshire, Action4Youth changes lives and creates better chances for young people by creating opportunities to discover their personal strengths and potential. They work with roughly 25,000 young people, from all backgrounds and all abilities, each year to make a real difference to their futures.
The 2023 triathlon saw members of our team, plus our clients, suppliers and subcontractors, compete in clay pigeon and crossbow shooting, 18 holes of golf and a quad-bike safari for non golfers. The day was followed by a dinner and auction.
Representatives from our team and Action4Youth gathered at our South Midlands office in Newton Leys last week for a formal presentation of the funds.
Jenifer Cameron, Chief Executive at Charity4Youth, said “We would like to say a massive thank you to Taylor Wimpey South Midlands for their generous donation which will help tremendously to fund our services across Buckinghamshire.
“With the donation, we will be able to increase our mentoring work across Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. Our team supports individual young people experiencing difficulties in their school or home lives, working with them over a period of time to find solutions and positive direction in their lives.”
Hayden Dolby, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, said: “We are proud to support Action4Youth for this year’s annual charity triathlon. The charity does vital work in transforming the lives of young people in Buckinghamshire and we hope the £8,000 raised makes a difference to the services they provide.
“Here at Taylor Wimpey we not only pride ourselves on the superb homes we build, but also on the commitment we have to making a positive impact on those that live in communities near our developments.”
