As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to confirm that it will donate £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at its new development in South Queensferry– Hawthorn Gardens.

The first tranche of £1,075 was donated this month. In total, a grand sum of £9,500 will be paid to the RNLI and this substantial donation will go directly to the local RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat Station.

The RNLI has a vital role within the community of Queensferry, and crew members are dedicated to keeping the local community safe and they have received three RNLI medals for gallantry.
