Taylor Wimpey España gears up for Challenge 2019, following impressive 2018 results

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has reported impressive results for its 2018 performance, delivering 342 homes over the course of the year, compared with 301 in 2017. The 14% increase in completed homes was complemented by an improved operating profit of £29.2 million for 2018 (2017: £26.8 million). The success of developments such as the Costa del Sol’s La Floresta Sur was key to the company’s robust performance.

However, the Taylor Wimpey team is about more than making Spanish second home buyers’ dreams come true – staff also want to make young people’s dreams come true. They are doing this through active fundraising for their participation in Challenge 2019.

The Challenge event is held every year by Taylor Wimpey in order to raise money for charity. Teams from across the vast organisation test their spirit, strength and teamwork in a series of demanding challenges while raising funds for worthy causes. This year, the teams will be scaling the Brecon Beacons in Wales in order to raise money and awareness for the Youth Adventure Trust, which works with outdoors with vulnerable young people to build their confidence and skills, and DEBRA, which works to improve the quality of life of Spanish people with epidermolysis bullosa, a rare and painful condition where the skin blisters easily.

“The Taylor Wimpey España team is getting into shape ready for Challenge 2019. We’re seeking support for our two chosen charities as we gear up for this year’s event and are looking forward to – hopefully – beating our 2018 fundraising target by quite some way in order to give back to the communities in which we work.”

Taylor Wimpey España has a strong track record when it comes to the Challenge events. In 2018, the team raised a record-breaking total of just under £13,000 – 323% of its original fundraising target and the highest amount raised by any of the teams taking part. The effort contributed to a total amount pledged by parent company Taylor Wimpey of £167,575 – the highest sum ever raised by its annual Challenge.

The competitive Spanish team also did well during the 2018 event itself, coming first in the ‘Beast’ hiking competition and third in the ‘Dragon’ hiking and biking competition. This year, the team is fired up to perform even better – both in the Brecon Beacons and in terms of its fundraising efforts.

“Doing so well in the Challenge 2018 was a great feeling – but raising so much money for such good causes was an even better one. That’s why we’re pushing this year to beat our fundraising target once more and make Challenge 2019 our most successful year yet!”
