Taylor Wimpey España kicks off fundraising challenges in aid of two charities

The second weekend of May will see Taylor Wimpey employees complete their annual Charity Challenge divided in four levels to raise money for two great causes.

This year’s challenge will transport employees to Wales, home of the massive Snowdonia National Park complete with stunning yet challenging mountains to climb. Two teams from the Spanish arm of the company, Taylor Wimpey Espana, will tackle the fierce challenge of hiking the mountains, taking in the infamous Glyders and Snowdon itself.

As well as preparing to tackle this rocky challenge (10th to 13th May), the Taylor Wimpey España teams have started holding fundraising events to help raise money for The Youth Adventure Trust and Llar de memoria, with a marketing campaign with suppliers, agents, the sale of T-shirts and a solidarity beer event held in the office on Mallorca.

The Youth Adventure Trust helps vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to gain the skills, confidence and courage needed in order to face the challenges in their daily lives whereas Llar de memoria is an association that ruins a sanitary centre to treat dementia.

The team has already raised 91% of the £4,000 target before the challenge.

“Our Taylor Wimpey challenge has become an annual event with many employees looking forward to the opportunity to participate and donate to some amazing causes. The money raised from this challenge will make such a difference to young people’s lives and victims of dementia. Our goal is to give as much as we can, so no donation is too big or too small. We wish our two teams chosen to represent the Spanish division all the very best for this exciting challenge!”

Despite the popularity of the Snowdonia peaks, this challenge should not be underestimated especially as they are divided in four levels: Snowdon Dragon, Snowdon Monster, Snowdon Sprite and Snowdon Beast.

Each includes a conquest of the National Park through Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr and Snowdon – a total ascent of 1,500 metres on average – and those brave enough will not just descend on foot but also on two wheels. With its large boulders, gushing waterfalls, vertical rock faces, heavy mist and endless crude stone staircases, the Snowdon mountains really are a hell of a place for a hike and bike ride!

For 60 years, Taylor Wimpey España has been delivering award-winning homes that complement the natural beauty of the Balearics, the Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol. If you would like to view more about the event or make a donation to the team please do visit this link.
