We kickstart our fundraising for cancer charity

As part of our annual fundraising efforts, our Southern Counties team has begun the first in a series of activities and events planned to raise money for Maggie’s Southampton this year.

Maggie's Southampton Fire Walk

Supporting our communities

Our Southern Counties team has set a fundraising goal of £25,000 and has kickstarted this by attending a Burns Night Fire Walk on Saturday 27th January and a Chamber of Commerce ‘Connect Dinner’ on Wednesday 7th February both of which were hosted by Maggie’s Southampton to raise money and awareness for the cause.

Further fundraising activities and events have been scheduled throughout the year to achieve the goal, including skydiving, abseiling, a long-distance endurance walk and a Picnic in the Park event to not only raise money but also promote a sense of community.

Each year, our Southern Counties team chooses a cause to support throughout the year. For 2024, they will be fundraising for Maggie’s Southampton and St Francis Animal Rescue Centre. 

Maggie’s offers a warm and welcoming place for providing practical, emotional and social support to individuals and families affected by cancer. To continue running and developing its unique programme of support provided by qualified professionals and growing its national network of centres, the charity relies on voluntary donations. The Southampton centre is based at the University Hospital Southampton and covers those affected by cancer across the South coast.

Aaron Wright, Senior Planning Manager at Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties said: “Our decision to support Maggie’s Southampton this year stems from a personal connection for our team. Some of us have had family members who have benefited immensely from the services that Maggie’s Southampton provides. 

“We invite everyone to join us in supporting this cause by donating to Maggie’s Southampton through its dedicated fundraising page or by attending the events we have planned throughout the year.”
