Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is offering a huge vote of thanks to all those who helped the company smash this year’s Challenge 2018 fundraising target.

The money raised – some 323% of the team’s original target – will be donated in equal portions to the Youth Adventure Trust and Llar de memoria.

I’m thrilled to report that the Taylor Wimpey España team reached first position in fundraising in this year’s Taylor Wimpey Challenge 2018. This is an important event for promoting the work of good causes and helping to fund that work, so I’m delighted that Taylor Wimpey España was able to play such a leading role. Thank you so much to all those who donated to the Challenge this year!

The amount raised by Taylor Wimpey España is almost ouble that achieved in 2018. Meanwhile the total amount pledged by parent company Taylor Wimpey is a staggering £167,575 – the most ever raised by the annual Challenge event.

Taylor Wimpey España worked with suppliers, agents, employees, family and friends to raise awareness of the 2018 Challenge, selling T-shirts and holding a ‘solidarity beer event’ in the company’s Mallorca office. The main fundraising activity also saw the Taylor Wimpey España tackle Mount Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales and the third highest in the UK. Over the course of 10-13 May, the plucky team shot to first position in the Beast ascent hiking competition, beating 19 other teams, while also coming third in the 25-team Dragon ascent hiking and biking contest.

The two charities set to benefit from this year’s Challenge work tirelessly to support some of society’s most vulnerable individuals. The Youth Adventure Trust supports disadvantaged young people to build the skills, courage and confidence needed to meet the challenges of daily life. Llar de memoria works to support people suffering from dementia, providing activities and workshops in a day-care centre setting, as well as working with the families of those with dementia.

“It’s a privilege to be able to support two such worthy causes and to give something back, both in the UK and Spain. Having been a part of the homebuilding sector in Spain for 60 years, Taylor Wimpey España is a long-established presence in the communities in which we work, so it’s fantastic to be able to support vulnerable individuals in those communities.
