Taylor Wimpey paying for a day of care and support from EACH

Jul 05, 2019

Taylor Wimpey is today (Friday, 5 July) paying for a day of care and support from EACH across the region, having raised a fantastic £20,952 last year.

It costs us £16,800 a day to run our service and staff from the housebuilder in East Anglia have smashed that total by organising cake sales, dress-down days and their annual golf day at Stoke by Nayland. The company also sponsored an EACH Colour Dash.

This year’s golf day is happening today and Trustee Brad McLean is visiting to present a special award.

Brad says: “EACH needs a huge amount of voluntary donations to keep doing what it does. I have first-hand experience of how important the service is, so I can assure that the ongoing support of companies like this couldn’t be more appreciated. Taylor Wimpey’s actually raised almost £50,000 for EACH since 2015 and I really hope it’ll continue this brilliant level of support long into the future.”

Hayden Dolby, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia Managing Director, said: “EACH is such a special charity and very close to our hearts at Taylor Wimpey. It provides a lifeline to children, parents and carers at an unimaginably difficult time. Our work across East Anglia brings us into contact with many families who may one day benefit from the care and compassion shown by the charity’s staff and volunteers. It’s great to know our donation is helping the charity continue its fantastic care and support of families across East Anglia.”

Next month, the team at The Treehouse are looking forward to welcoming a group of Taylor Wimpey volunteers, who will be helping out for a day with tasks such as gardening, painting and cleaning.

Taylor Wimpey’s fundraising support has continued into 2019 and staff hope to raise the same amount again. The company recently sponsored our new mud run and obstacle course, the Piglet, Junior Hog.

  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum

  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
