Residential property developer Taylor Wimpey has presented local suicide prevention charity the OLLIE Foundation with a cheque for more than £19,000.
Following a busy schedule of fundraising events during 2018, employees of Taylor Wimpey North Thames handed over the cheque for £19,102.62.
The funding will help support the charity’s aim to prevent youth suicide by providing vital suicide intervention training.
Peter Gurr, managing director of Taylor Wimpey North Thames, said: “The OLLIE Foundation does such important work in raising awareness of suicide and helping to support those who have been affected by it.
“We were delighted to be able to provide the charity with a donation which we hope will help them to maintain and develop the fantastic services they already provide in and around St Albans.”
