As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, NTaylor Wimpey West Scotland teamed up with the RNLI to confirm that it will donate £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at its new developments in Troon – Princess Gate and Queens Court.
The first donation of £1,025 was recently donated to the Troon Lifeboat Station and in total, a grand sum of £5,650 will be paid to RNLI.
The donation recognises a long-term relationship between Taylor Wimpey West Scotland and the RNLI with the money contributing towards the amazing life-saving services the RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station provides.
Commenting on the donation, Urda Cotter Treasure of Troon RNLI said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation. This money will be put to work locally to help us achieve the overall aim of our service to the local community. On behalf of everyone at RNLI, I would like to say a huge thank you.”
Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: ”We are delighted to be able to support the RNLI at its Troon Lifeboat Station. This first donation of £1,025 reflects the beginning of a long term relationship with this very worthy cause that provides a link between the new community that is emerging at Princess Gate and Queens Court, and the existing community of Troon. Working with the RNLI is a real honour and we are extremely proud to be showing our support in this way. Being able to work with local charities and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s always lovely to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.”
