The donation of £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at their new developments in Troon signals a long-term relationship between Wimpey Taylor and Troon RNLI lifeboat station.

Troon lifeboat treasurer Urda Cotter said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation. This money will be put to work locally to help us achieve the overall aim of our service to the local community. On behalf of everyone at RNLI, I would like to say a huge thank you.”

Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director said: ”We are delighted to be able to support the RNLI at its Troon Lifeboat Station. Our announcement signals the creation of a relationship with this very worthy cause that will provide a link between the new community that will emerge at Princess Gate and Queens Court, and the existing community of Troon. Working with the RNLI is a real honour and we are extremely proud to be showing our support in this way. Being able to work with local charities and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s always lovely to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.”

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
