As part of our ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, at the launch of our two developments for sale in Troon, we teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to confirm that we will donate £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at Princess Gate and Queens Court.
The second tranche of £900 was donated to the charity in late March this year, which brings the overall donation paid so far to £1,925 towards the grand sum of £5,650 that has been pledged to the RNLI, with all money going directly to the local RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station.
The donation recognises a long-term relationship between the West Scotland team and the RNLI with the money going towards the amazing life-saving services the RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station provides. The charity aims to use volunteers wherever possible and with voluntary donations, this donation contributes to funds which are necessary to make this achievable and will help with the RNLI’s overall aim to keep lives safe at sea.
The RNLI has a vital role within the community of Troon, and the local lifeboat station covers the lower Firth of Clyde with its two lifeboats. The crew members are dedicated to keeping the local community safe and they have received three RNLI medals for gallantry.
Urda Cotter from the RNLI said: “We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and we can’t thank them enough for their second 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. Our donation of £1,925 to-date reflects the continuation of a long- term relationship with this essential local charity and service that provides a link between the new community that is growing 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 delivering on our overall commitment to them for the duration of our build period in Troon.
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.”
