Taylor Wimpey donates £1000 to QCCC
Recently, leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, who is building new homes at West Craigs, Maybury in Edinburgh and Lauder Grove in Ratho Station, launched its Community Chest project on social media asking the local community across West Edinburgh to nominate good causes to share in its Community Chest of £2,000.
The campaign generated over 40 nominations and two local charities were selected by a team at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland to share the fund with each receiving a £1,000 boost to their bank accounts.
Each group makes a real difference to the local community in Edinburgh and beyond, and St Columba's Hospice and Queensferry Care in the Community are delighted to receive £1,000 each.
The donation is welcomed, as Liz McIntosh and Sue Hope from the charity: "We would both like to thank Taylor Wimpey on behalf of Queensferry Care in the Community for the lovely donation. This will be put to good use in the support of older people in our communities in this our 30th year of operation."
Kirsty McGill, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: "Our Community Chest project is a great way to find out more about the groups and organisations that really do make a difference to the lives of people living locally near our developments.
"We were delighted to learn more about these local charities, and to find out how our donations will support them while we continue to play our role in the local community as our development progress at both West Craigs, Maybury in Edinburgh and Lauder Grove in Ratho Station."
