We give boost to Bearwood community

As part of our ongoing commitment to working with the local community, we donated £1,000 to St Barnabas Church in Bearwood to support its community activities.

Supporting our communities

The donation has been split between the two community groups and services, which are hosted at Bearwood Community Centre, nearby our Canford Vale development in Canford Magna.

St Barnabas Church runs a weekly community Youth Club on Friday nights which is staffed by volunteers and was funded by the local council, however it lost this funding at the start of 2023 due to cuts. With a rise in young people attending the club over the last 18 months, £500 of our donation will be put towards the club's operating costs.

The church has also employed a Children and Families Worker to support children and families in Bearwood through a partnership with Bearwood Primary School. The other half of our donation will go towards resourcing school holiday events and the 'Seedlings' weekly toddlers group put together through this collaboration.

Rev'd Peter Myres, Vicar of St Barnabas Church, said: "We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their generous financial gift of £1,000 and for investing into our valuable community services such as our community Youth Club and the work of our Children and Families Worker."
