Char­i­ties over the moon to win fund­ing from firm

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Hous­ing firm Tay­lor Wim­pey West Scot­land has handed £1500 to two great causes.

The com­pany awarded Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port with a £1,000 do­na­tion and Alzheimer Scot­land with £500 fol­low­ing the con­clu­sion of its Built for the Com­mu­nity cam­paign.

This en­cour­aged res­i­dents from across the west of Scot­land to vote for their cho­sen causes, and Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port was crowned the win­ner af­ter re­ceiv­ing the most votes from the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Vot­ing was also very high for Alzheimer Scot­land and the team from Tay­lor Wim­pey West Scot­land awarded them a run­ners-up do­na­tion of £500.

Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port works to pro­vide peo­ple with can­cer with prac­ti­cal, emo­tional and per­sonal sup­port.

This as­sis­tance has a huge im­pact on the lives of so many peo­ple, and the do­na­tion will con­trib­ute to this valu­able sup­port.

Jayne Forbes, from Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port said: “We are over the moon to re­ceive such a kind do­na­tion from Tay­lor Wim­pey.

“It will con­trib­ute to our over­all lo­cal fundrais­ing to help us to con­tinue the im­por­tant work that we do, so I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the com­pany.”

Alzheimer Scot­land pro­vides a wide range of spe­cial­ist ser­vices for peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia and their fam­i­lies.

They of­fer sup­port ser­vices, com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties, in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice.

Mar­i­lyn Boyd, from Alzheimer Scot­land, added:“We are de­lighted to have been part of the com­mu­nity char­ity cam­paign and it’s a lovely boost to re­ceive £500.

“Ev­ery do­na­tion counts and we will put this money to good use to sup­port our mis­sion that no­body should face de­men­tia alone.”

Tay­lor Wim­pey’s most re­cent cam­paign en­cour­aged res­i­dents from across the west of Scot­land to vote be­tween two char­i­ties that would ben­e­fit from its help.

Au­drey Ross, from Tay­lor Wim­pey West Scot­land, said: “We are pleased to be able to show our sup­port to each of th­ese im­por­tant char­i­ties that will en­able them to con­tinue, and ex­pand on, their great work.
