Helping the community
The Blyth Man Shed is a vital community hub that provides a welcoming and inclusive space for men and women of all ages to come together, socialise, and work on various DIY projects. Since its inception, it has been instrumental in combating social isolation and improving the overall well-being of its members. The shed offers a supportive environment where individuals can share skills, learn new ones, and develop strong social bonds. Their aim is to provide a space which gives individuals sanctuary and escape from the isolation & loneliness which can lead to poor mental health & wellbeing.
Sarah Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: "At Taylor Wimpey North East, we believe that a thriving community is built on the foundations of support, unity, and shared values. The Blyth Man Shed embodies these principles, providing an invaluable resource to our local residents. We are honoured to contribute £1,000 to assist in their meaningful work, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact this donation will have on the lives of the individuals they serve."
