We help St Helens youth disability charity win £600 grand prize

A St Helens youth disability charity has been awarded £600 by our North West team after being nominated to receive a donation by the local community.


Supporting our communities

Residents in and around St Helens were invited to vote for a good cause local to our Anderton Green and Sherdley Green developments to receive a helping hand. A number of worthy nominations were made but in the end it was Friends – Play for Disabled Children which won the grand prize.

The charity supports families with disabled children in St Helens and the surrounding areas. The donation was used to bring families together for a fun trip to The Hayloft cottage in December last year, where the children enjoyed an enchanting Aladdin-themed workshop and received gifts from Santa. 

Paula Jones, founder of Friends – Play for Disabled Children, said: “We are immensely grateful to Taylor Wimpey and the local community for their generous support towards our charity. 

“Our aim is to bring families of disabled children in St Helens and the surrounding area together through events, trips and day outs to help prevent isolation. This donation has helped us to arrange a trip filled with joy, laughter and cherished memories for all the families and this was made possible by Taylor Wimpey’s thoughtful contribution.”
