Recently, leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, who is building new homes at West Craigs and 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 with the team at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland selecting St Columba's Hospice Care and Queensferry Churches Care of Community to share the fund equally.
Amanda Southey – Corporate Development Manager for St Columba’s Hospice Care said: “This financial boost from Taylor Wimpey is gratefully received. Over the past year, we’ve been busy adapting our specialist services so we can reach even more people in the way that they choose; be that at home, in care settings or at the Hospice. It’s lovely that local people in Edinburgh put us forward to receive a share of Taylor Wimpey’s local Community Chest and we can’t thank them enough.”
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.”
