School receives £200 book voucher

Longford Park Primary School

As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire has recently donated £200 in book vouchers to our school.

Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire have supported the school earlier on in the year as Elaine Stratford, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire visited us to read Taylor Wimpey’s latest children’s storybook, ‘How We Build Your Home’.  The book explains the different stages involved in housebuilding, from picking a plot to putting in the windows and decorating the new rooms, told through Taylor Wimpey’s mascots, Millie Mortar and Handy Andy. The book also gives children safety tips for visiting new sites and seeing their brand new home being built.

The children were very excited about the Taylor Wimpey book, therefore the leading housebuilder decided to continue to support the school and encourage the children to read more by donating a £200 book voucher at a presentation which took place at the beginning of June.

Julie Hiddleston, Executive Headteacher at Longford Park Primary School said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the reading of Taylor Wimpey’s new book. Many families choose to move house during the spring and summer months, and this was a great opportunity for the children to learn about the process in a really engaging way, as well as understanding the importance of site safety. We are very grateful that Taylor Wimpey continued to support the school by generously donating  a £200 book voucher.”
