Supporting the Trust’s Stories for Sharing programme
The £1,000 funding will also support the Trust’s new Express Yourself programme for young people aged 12 to 16.
“We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation of £1,000 and 200 books. We are also delighted to confirm that Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s financial donation will be match-funded by Baillie Gifford, an Edinburgh-based investment company who are long-term supporters of our project.”
Kirsty McGill, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We are delighted to be able to support Craigmillar Literacy Trust with both funding and books to boost their literacy programmes delivered across the Craigmillar area. Being able to work with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us and it’s great to know that we are helping to make a difference within the local communities where we build.”
